SAM™ supports NDT through providing a simple & intuitive interface for the Shop Floor operative as well as a comprehensive reporting suite for the QA administrators all managed through a centralised web based software.
NDT is an abbreviation for Non-Destructive Testing, NDT is used whenever there are welds on components.
SAM™ can be integrated into any business to support NDT through the use of either a simple import process from existing data or a bespoke interface to create and manage item information.
SAM™ produces 4 distinct reports (Welded By Report, Visual Inspection Report, MPI Report & UT Report) from 1 simple user interface comprised of drop down boxes and selectable lists all managed from the web interface by the QA admin teams in the office, this reduces errors and time taken to fill in reports as well as ensuring that all the reports are available for the QA team to create the document packs for the client.
SAM™ produces distinct reports for all parts to the NDT Process (Dimensional, Visual Inspection Report, MPI Report, MPI Post Galvanising, UT Report & UT Lamination Report) from 1 simple user interface comprised of start & stop buttons and and integrated NCR system all managed from the web interface by the QA admin teams in the office, this reduces errors and time taken to fill in reports as well as ensuring that all the reports are formatted correctly & are available for the QA team to create the document packs for the client. SAM™ can also produce Weld Inspection Trackers & an overview report that displays all completed processes on an item or weld on both the Web App interface & PDF Reports.
SAM™ Covers 10% - 100% inspection by item within the Weld Inspection Module.
The QA/QC & Inspection processes of structural steel businesses had & have issues with collecting information from the shop floor and collating that information into usable reports for clients. We saw an opportunity to expand SAM™ capabilities to accommodate our structural steel clients in their efforts to close a gap in their process, we also saw the implementation of this additional module as a way to make the inspection lifecycle of each piece going through the shop floor more coherent & digitised to support our clients desires to move forward towards industry 4.0.
SAM™ has many benefits for the Weld inspection process, the key uses are the reduction in errors on reports as SAM™ utilises a database of information about the items being inspected so typos are a thing of the past, SAM™ stores all information about the inspectors and their equipment so rest assured the reports will contain all the information about the who and how the inspection was carried out. For us, the main benefit is that SAM™ remains simple for those who are using it. “K.I.S.S” is the motto we use, a shop floor user should want to use the system and to achieve this we made all of the complicated “stuff” happen behind the scenes where it should be, not in the hands of an inspector.
SAM™ offers the whole package when it comes to QA/QC not just NDT, there are other extensive tools that SAM™ has at its disposal from Doc Pack creation to ITP generation - SAM™ is your QA/QC Companion.
