CADRADO

PROJECT TITLE: DEVELOPMENT OF CAD TOOLS FOR AUTOMATIC EVALUATION OF RADIOGRAPHIC IMAGES(IN841C 2012/108).

CADRADO project is a technological innovation project whose main objective is to develop an automated software system for detection and evaluation of defects and critical levels for radiographic inspection of industrial parts.

Among the areas of interest for this type of application are the different typess of lightweight materials found in the production process of the aviation sector, a sector of great current relevance, both Galician and at national levels. Similarly, the interest extends to other target areas of composites, such as naval construction and wind.

Thus, the software will allow the specific analysis of radiographic image, where automatic studies are scarce and are oriented to materials with repetitive features. The flexibility of the developed software is key for defect detection, measurement and feature extraction in different kinds of industrial parts. Specific filters and tools needed for a specific and automated analysis will be generated, and finally the application will be integrated with a graphical user interface. The final interface will be friendly and simple, facilitating their integration into the radiographic inspection cycle in different stages of industrial production.

This project is led by SYSPRO ENGINEERING, with extensive experience in development of software-oriented industry. With it, SYSPRO expand its specialty to radiographic image in non-destructive testing (NDT), which differs from images in machine vision and clinical radiography. The proposed solution can be applied to any digital radiography system, and will meet the current shortcomings in this field.

AIMEN, one of the most important technology centers in Galicia, collaborate with SYSPRO in the development of this software from its extensive knowledge in NDT and digital radiography in particular, covering the inspection of different digital equipment as well as the initial image analysis by expert staff.

This project is supported by the Xunta de Galicia through the Galician Axencia Innovation.
