RoboScan 600 HD from American Stress Technologies is a nondestructive, robot-driven inspection system for large windmill gears. It uses Barkhausen noise for detecting grinding damages and other microstructural defects, such as soft spots in planetary gears. The system includes a robot, Rollscan, Barkhausen noise sensors, electric cabinet and controls, computer with accessories, cabinet for the Rollscan and computer, and ViewScan data acquisition and analyzing software. Gears are loaded and unloaded manually onto and from the heavy-duty rotation table inside the safety area. The system automatically scans the gear teeth surfaces as well as identifies and faces surfaces of the gears for defects. Measuring different types and sizes of gears is possible by different measurement programs, and testing new gear types can be programmed into the system. Gauss and roughness meters can also be implemented in the system.
