Automatic optimization of image quality according to the object and free presetting of parameters available

Since the introduction of the world's first digital diagnostic X-ray imaging system FCR in 1983, Fujifilm has developed imaging processing technologies suitable for objects which have undergone NDT. For DynamIx VU, we have adopted Exposure Data Recognizer (EDR) to automatically adjust the density and our proprietary image processing technology Fuji Image Processing (FIP). With these technologies, it is possible to provide optimized images of any test object. Moreover, users can customize parameter presets for image processing. Anyone can easily perform image adjustment suitable for the test object.

The wide dynamic range, ensuring clear depiction of an object of varying thickness

DynamIx inherits the FCR technology of Fujifilm which has been on the frontier of film and digital image resolution technologies. With the wide dynamic range of four or more orders of magnitude, every part of an object—either thick part or thin part—is clearly expressed, free from blown out highlights, blocked up shadows or unevenness.

DynamIx VU Thickness*2 measurement — the automatic measurement tool makes corrosion tests easier

Focusing on the region of interest and automatically measuring the pipe wall thickness, DynamIx VU Thickness realizes more efficient and stable inspection

Different from conventional measurement based on the human eye, Fujifilm's precise image analysis technology automatically detects the inner and outer edges of pipe wall and measures the wall thickness.*3 Easy but accurate corrosion tests are performed reducing the need for difficult manual measurements.

  • *2 Available as an option.
  • *3 The measurement method conforms to HOIS (09) RP1.

Long IPs enabling efficient exposure of welded pipe joints

Special inspection screen for images read from long IPs

Efficient examination of welded pipe joints can be conducted in a small number of exposures. Reading of images on IPs of up to 152 cm long reduces the number of exposures needed for large jobs.

Reading and inspection possible on one computer

The software enables reading and inspection to be conducted on a computer, with quick switching between the screens. Access to the image database is also smooth, so that an image appears on the inspection screen instantly after it is read. This feature enhances the work efficiency in each process.

The density parameter presets for more efficient image adjustment

The user can customize and preset the automatic density adjustment parameter (Exposure Data Recognizer: EDR) suitable for the test object. Easy density adjustment is possible with just one-click.

More reliable assessment and greater traceability

Minimized human labor for image quality assessment. Easy input of defect determination results on the special screen

DynamIx VU newly offers DynamIx VU Judge*7 the automatic image quality assessment. This program calculates the image quality index based on the measured normalized signal-to-noise ratio (NSNR) of an image, and assesses if the index conforms to a standard image quality assessment index. This saves the need of measurement and calculation by humans.

In addition to ISO standards, industry-specific standards are supported as the assessment criteria. The screen to input defect determination results is offered. The results can be recorded on the system.

Automatic recording of all assessments for greater reliability

Each assessment is recorded according to who, when and what, contributing to the enhanced traceability.

Specified-format report creation with a little data input

With DynamIx VU Report*7, reports in the specified formats are prepared automatically at the end of an NDT only by inputting test data such as the exposure conditions, results of image quality assessment and of defect determination on the relevant screens. As a report is created in Microsoft® Word®, it is readily used on other Microsoft® software. The report format or the file format is customizable.

Interfaces focusing on easy viewing and user convenience

Flexible network configuration and communication to create an optimum workflow environment

Flexible network configuration and link with other systems to build the optimum workflow in a user environment

The DynamIx system is customizable according to the existing network environment. By managing the inspection image data at multiple sites on a central server, an inspector can access the data anywhere via the network to assess the image. Linked with Intranet or Major ERP Applications, it is possible to send a test request made on an ERP package to each test site, or receive a test report vice versa. Thus, an efficient workflow improving the NDT process is established.

Strengthened security with user authority control

Controlled user access to functions by the administrator

A user's access right to each function can be assigned by the administrator to limit viewing or editing of data to the minimum necessary and strengthen the security. With this function enabled, the system shows only the functions pertinent to the user, offering simple and easy-to-use screen interface.
