Fast reliable inspection
A reference bolt is used to ensure sensitivity for the inspection object. this is a 180mm long Ø32mm reference bolt with 3 notches.
30mm from surface 1mm deep 10mm long.
110mm from surface 1,5mm deep 12mm long.
160mm from surface 1mm deep 10mm long
All 3 indications are easy detectable projected in the correct position and with use of a CAD model of the reference bolt its even easier to determent where the indications appears from. Reporting and analyze time is reduced and bolt with flaws can be replaced.
