The unique Dynamic Cursor (DC) sizing and verification tool assists in identifying difficult to size defects such as deep pits, bacterial attack and through holes.
The Dynamic Cursor is based on a comparison principle, the expected volume loss and diameter of ‘known depth’ reference defects are compared to inspection surface defects.
The DC works by allowing thescreen cursor to form a ring when moved over an indication which dynamically changes to show the expected diameter of the defect – where inconsistancies are seen re-evaluation may occur.
By using the DC, prove-up inspections such as pit gauging and ultrasonic measurements can be targeted towards the most relevant defects, reducing overall inspection time and improving inspection accuracy.
At a glance, the operator is able to determine which indications are likely to have been sized within expected accuracy levels, and which defects may have been oversized or undersized due to volumes being significantly different to the reference defects.
