Robotics play a significant role in the future of industrial maintenance. 3D-Industrial support many projects with regards to the development of tools and science that contributes towards a practical solution of current issues.
One of our projects is called WINSPECTOR, a consortium composed of five members, TWI, WRS, Innora, Gamesa and London South Bank University. This consortium has come together to develop a solution for wind turbine blades inspections.
The solutions consist of a self-moving automated robotic deployment platform that uses shearography to determine critical flaws or discontinuities found in composite WTBs, namely cracks, voids, disbonds, delamination, and or impact damage.
