Automatic Laser Inspection, Detection and Reporting System for Pipes and Tubes

  1. 1. LaserViewer™ Analysis Software with Automated Reporting For BEMIS™ Laser-based Bore Erosion Measurement and Inspection Systems: 21 Aug 2013 1 Automatic Feature Detection and Data Comparison of Smooth-Bore Gun Tubes and Pipes
  2. 2. Background • LTC clients seek increased autonomy from BEMIS™ Laser- based Bore Erosion Measurement Inspection Systems • Initial application designed for use with smooth-bore gun tubes and pipes • LTC LaserViewer™ Analysis program runs on commercial PCs • Analyzes LTC proprietary Scan Data (.sdt) format • Automates reporting of individual pits and total volumetric material loss of a laser-mapped sample based on operator selectable criteria 2
  3. 3. BEMIS™ • Scans the interior surface of pipes and tubes • Saves the data for further analysis 3
  4. 4. Machined Defects used as Verification Samples 4 Scan Data as shown in LaserViewer™ Analysis AFD 120mm Diameter Samples
  5. 5. Pit Depth Analysis BEMIS™ Measures a machined pit 8mm deep 5
  6. 6. BEMIS™ Automatic Feature Detection Software is able to identify and calculate the real size of a feature area. The correct borderline is detectable according to the difference between the “good” surrounding surface and the deeper “defective” surface.

  28. 28. Two sets of Scan Data (.sdt files) of the same barrel or pipe can be compared with each other and overlaid. This allows comparison of different scan data of the same barrel or pipe at different times. By using this functionality it is possible to display the increasing defects according to time in service or the rounds fired in between the two scans.

Scan Data Compare Comparison between two machined articles 30 Difference Between Small and Large Defects Data is nearly identical and is displayed same as background reference Data is different and is displayed as unique colors and measurement data Tight color palette used to enhance differences
  30. 30. Data Comparison Function Information is exported to MS Excel 31 DefectsTab Compare Datasets The Compare Datasets function first builds a report of a single data file (most recent scan data) and then prompts you to select a second data file (baseline – older scan data) for comparison. The second file is compared to first as a “baseline” using the embedded date of the scan data. The produced report contains 3 tabs Defects, Segment Volume Comparison and Plot. The Defects tab consists of a side by side comparison of the defects found on both data files. The Segment Volume Comparison tab lists the volume loss for each segment side by side as well as the difference in segment volumes. The Plot tab tab consists of a graph plot of the difference in volume per segment.
