Bridge Virtual Assembly System [B5]

Bridge fabricators do different things, and do things differently, than other fabricators--true or false? Hear about two technologies that bridge fabricators are beginning to employ that may also save man-hours in your shop. Phased array ultrasonic inspection (PAUT) is coming to steel bridge fabrication and offers several improvements, including faster testing and digital record of the test results. If you're involved in NDT, you want to hear the overview of this technology and learn the implementation path for this technique. Also, new measurement technology provides a permanent digital record of fabricated components and performs virtual assembly of girders. The system eliminates conventional match-drilling and girder laydowns, reducing fabrication costs and improving the manner in which steel is fabricated.
