Composite Manufacturing Quality Control Inspection
QCAnalytix™ is the world’s first fully automated in-line inspection solution for composite fabrication and manufacturing.
The QCAnalytix™ in-line quality control system ensures the strength and reliability of composite industrial products for oil and gas, chemical processing, mining, pulp and paper, and many other industries.
Ideal for both filament winding and pultrusion processes, QCAnalytix™ quality control inspection helps manufacturers quickly and accurately inspect new composite construction from start to finish to verify that each part complies with specifications, is free of manufacturing defects and will perform in the field as expected.
A key advantage for manufacturers is the ability to make data-informed changes to their new construction processes for rapid turnaround of improvements. This helps boost production of high-quality products, increasing profitability and efficiency while significantly reducing waste.
QCAnalytix™ is based on UTComp’s patented UltraAnalytix® inspection technology for in-service assets to provide revolutionary quality control all along the value chain.
QCAnalytix™ uses a proprietary algorithm that analyzes ultrasonic data and replaces subjective visual inspections or destructive testing with live, in-process testing that provides immediate, quantifiable results.
QCAnalytix™ Research & Validation
UTComp founder and CTO Geoff Clarkson presented a technical paper on Non-Destructive Production Line Structural Evaluation at the 2019 Composites and Advanced Materials (CAMX) Expo Sept. 23-26, 2019. The paper discusses the application of QCAnalytix™ for composite railway tie manufacturing.
