A fully automated, enhanced surface inspection solution for finished and fielded spool assemblies
Direct line of site access with digital inspection technology
GE’s Deep Cavity Inspection System allows a single operator to perform Eddy Current Inspection and/or “Enhanced FPI Inspection” of deep cavity spools using a fully-automated system for highly repeatable, consistent results.
No borescope, handheld mirrors, light source or pin gauge needed
Historically, spool surfaces have been FPI- and white-light inspected with mirrors or handheld borescopes. Our system eliminates the need for these tools while also providing a full inspection report with images.
Engine Spool Compatibility
Automatic system validation: Light intensity, Positioning and Optical Resolution
White light and UV Inspection capability.
Pixel resolution up to 0.0005 inches.
