The UniWest 4D Rapid Prototype Product Development System


Overview l.jpg
Overview

UniWest’s unique 4D process for rapid prototype development ensures fast solutions to complex application problems:

• Define Customer Application Problems

• Design Innovative Engineering Model

• Develop Solution Driven Prototypes

• Deliver Turn Key Solutions


Roller bearing inspection system l.jpg
Roller Bearing Inspection System

Define Customer Application Problem:

In-line inspection of roller bearings that are placed in critical operating applications.


Case study l.jpg
Case Study

• Design Innovative Engineering Model

• Research showed this hopper and roller bearing transport design to be the best approach.

Define Customer Application:

Inspect geometrically difficult to inspect areas.

A flexible probe coil was Designed, Developed and Delivered. It has proven to be a good solution for several difficult to inspect areas.

Define Customer Application Problem:

A better way to inspect fan blade joints.

Design indicated that a swivel handle would work best on this application.

Define Customer Application Problem:

A better way to inspect the leading edge of fan blades.

Design proved a focused coil with US-454 EddyView™ worked best.


Airframe manufacturing l.jpg
Airframe Manufacturing

Define Customer Application Problem: A better way to inspect the inside diameter of ball screws.

In-depth research of the stabilizer arm determined the Design prototype. It proved to be the best solution to detect cracks on the inside diameter of this difficult to inspect part.


General purpose bolt hole scanner indexer l.jpg
General Purpose Bolt Hole Scanner/Indexer

Define Customer Application Problem:

A bolt hole scanner to rapidly and accurately inspect critical engine parts.

UniWest Developed a hand held scanner assembly that keeps the coil perpendicular to the side of the hole. This mechanical assist is more accurate than holding by hand.


Power generation l.jpg

Define Customer Application Problem:

Develop an eddy current instrument that would also have vision and strip chart capabilities.

The US-454 EddyView™ is shown inspecting the inside of a valve with the VisionProbe™, and using an eddy current probe to calibrate from a test block.


Slide17 l.jpg

UniWest Designed this hybrid instrument to include eddy current, video capture and strip chart recorder.

Prototype instruments were Developed, modifications were applied and instruments were Delivered on schedule.


Slide18 l.jpg

Define Customer Application Problem: Need the ability to visually inspect thermally hot environments.

UniWest Designed this high temperature vision probe to work with the US-454 EddyView™ eddy current instrument.

Develop Solution Driven Prototype: The HiTempProbe™ can withstand temperatures up to 900° F.

This complete package was Delivered turn key.


Slide19 l.jpg

Capabilities: Probe Lab

The UniWest probe lab manufactures innovative eddy current prototypes for the NDT industry.


Slide20 l.jpg

Capabilities: Quality Control

The UniWest quality assurance program insures that every probe conforms to customer specifications.


Slide21 l.jpg
