As industrial digital radiography continues to grow, so does the demand for the secure storage and easy retrieval of valuable commercial images.
That’s why Carestream NDT and ayData, two global providers of NDT DICONDE data management, are partnering, combining Carestream HPX digital image acquisition products with the ayData NDT archive.
A powerful indexed DICONDE archive solution for Non-Destructive Testing images and information.
The ayData NDT archive delivers a complete, scalable and flexible indexed Digital Imaging and Communication in Non-Destructive Evaluation (DICONDE) archive solution for non-destructive testing (NDT) images and information. With high performance features, the ayData NDT archive can improve the workflow in any environment where reliability, quality, and security are of key importance.
ayData NDT archive’s advanced indexing technologies provide fast, efficient, reliable and secure storage, retrieval, and validation of DICONDE images. Utilizing a central database, searching by component, date, or inspector has never been easier. By leveraging the ayData NDT archive you now have a central digital “film vault” of all historical inspection data and records at your fingertips. Pre-inspection planning can easily reference prior inspection data and post-imaging analysis and reporting can be done by a central experts group and “in context”.
