APPLICATIONS

KARL STORZ NDTec OFFERS DIVERSE SYSTEM SOLUTIONS

Applications in Industrial Endoscopy are highly varied and nearly limitless. For instance, they include interior inspections of turbines, contraband inspections in vehicles and research on the structure of termite hills. We aim to reflect this variety by offering one of the most comprehensive product range including measuring systems, videoscopes, fiberscopes and borescopes. All of our product are easy and quick to operate and are designed to be suitable for a wide range of working conditions and applications.

POWER GENERATION

Maximum availability without unplanned interruptions is key in the supply of power. As a result, high safety and time standards apply to power plant maintenance, that is, to preventive as well as spontaneous functional testing. Nondestructive testing permits the rapid, reliable, and informative visualization of difficult-to-access cavities without time-consuming disassembly. The KARL STORZ NDTec product range is perfectly suited for the inspection of gears or roller bearings of wind turbines. In power plants, gas turbines, weld seams, lines, etc., can be precisely examined and measured, and maintenance results can be digitally documented with ease.

  • PREVENTIVE FUNCTIONAL TESTING
  • INSPECTION OF DIFFICULT-TO-ACCESS CAVITIES
  • STATIONARY AND PORTABLE SOLUTIONS

AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY AND TRANSPORTATION

Since safe transport requires reliability, parts testing is particularly important in the automotive and rail sector. The testing and quality assurance of engine blocks, injectors, and further cast parts is routine in automotive production. In repair work, car manufacturers and workshops rely on the advantages of visual inspection as well. Whether in quality assurance or inspection, the products of KARL STORZ NDTec feature high image quality, support the production and repair process with rapid results, and can be optimally integrated in standardized quality assurance processes.

  • IDEAL IN PRODUCTION AND IN REPAIR SHOPS
  • VISUALIZATION FOR OPTIMAL QUALITY ASSURANCE
  • ROBUST SYSTEMS FOR DAILY PRODUCTION ROUTINE

PROCESS INDUSTRY

Processing plants feature high automation levels and high availability with maximum output. Downtimes mean loss of productivity and increased costs. This similarly applies to all industries that – like the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries – use a large variety of automation systems. The often challenging geometries of these plants, such as angled, very small-diameter, or very long pipes, make it particularly important to work quickly in emergencies as well as in planned preventive maintenance. The comprehensive KARL STORZ NDTec product range for nondestructive testing optimally meets these high maintenance requirements with flexibly usable endoscopes and videoscopes. In addition to the standard products, KARL STORZ NDTec offers specific and especially robust Large Diameter Systems, which are particularly used in the oil industry.

  • VISUALIZATION OF COMPLEX PIPING SYSTEMS
  • MINIMIZATION OF DOWNTIMES
  • VARIETY OF WORKING LENGTHS AND DIAMETERS

SECURITY

Thanks to its precision, visual inspection is essential in the investigations and seizures conducted by safety authorities, in customs inspections as well as in rescue operations in difficult-to-access buildings. Videoscopes with infrared illumination can be used safely and inconspicuously in daylight or at night. High quality visualization systems from KARL STORZ NDTec support authorities and emergency services in the rapid and reliable investigation of emergency situations.

  • VISUAL RECONNAISSANCE FOR RELIABLE OPERATIONAL PLANNING
  • RISK MINIMIZATION FOR RESPONDING PERSONNEL
  • SPECIAL APPLICATIONS WITH INFRARED CAPABILITIES

AVIATION

Airframe and power plant maintenance in airplanes and helicopters is characterized by regular inspection cycles, strict tolerances, and high standards regarding the documentation of maintenance results and defects. Visual inspection saves time since videoscopes as well as rigid and flexible endoscopes can be used to inspect and test difficult-to-access areas – with little disassembly required. Endoscopes, cameras, and measuring and documentation systems from KARL STORZ NDTec support inspectors worldwide in achieving maximally reliable maintenance results with an optimal time investment.

  • TIME-OPTIMIZED VISUAL INSPECTION
  • MINIMUM DISASSEMBLY REQUIRED
  • RELIABLE MAINTENANCE RESULTS

INFRASTRUCTURE

In the construction industry and in building construction, the inspection of above-ground and underground structures is a common service offered by established companies. Viewing bridges, canal systems, and ventilation shafts or examining the building structure are elementary steps to properly determine the further procedure. Inspecting the building condition or documenting defects in concrete, steel, or other materials is essential for expert reports or in liability matters as well. KARL STORZ NDTec products offer excellent image quality and portability as well as user-friendly documentation and measuring functions.

  • RELIABLE INSPECTION OF THE BUILDING STRUCTURE
  • PRECISE DAMAGE ANALYSIS
  • COMPACT AND PORTABLE SYSTEMS
