3D NDT SOLUTIONS
Rapid3D has NDT packages which include 3D scanning tools and analysis software, to inspect even the most complex integrity equipment.
3D SCANNING SOLUTIONS
for Surface Damage Assessement
VXintegrity is a powerful NDT software platform that integrates all analytical functions and tools into an intuitive, user-friendly working environment. Composed of four software modules designed specifically for the NDT industries, VXintegrity combines NDT knowledge and market intelligence to raise the quality of analysis and reporting to a higher level.
The challenges facing NDT service companies are becoming increasingly prominent. First, these issues exist in a market made
up of old, rapidly-aging infrastructure, which causes an increased demand for inspection. Second, there is a shortage of skilled labor as well as the increased departure of retiring experienced technicians, which provokes a drop in service offerings.
This combination of an increase in inspection demands and a decrease in service offerings constitutes a perfect storm for the
industry, making it difficult to meet customers’ needs.

VXintegrity - PIPELINE
Pipeline owners face constant pressure from regulatory authorities and environmental groups to guarantee pipeline network integrity. Despite this pressure, they often base their maintenance decisions on non-traceable and error-prone manual measurements, even
though an incorrect diagnosis can lead to severe consequences.
Pipecheck delivers accurate results and in-depth analyses directly onsite, enabling pipeline owners to establish valid diagnoses and make appropriate repair decisions quickly for corrosion and mechanical damage. This allows them to stick to their budget and schedule, ensure employee safety, and maintain public health and trust.
Data analysis and report generation directly onsite,
allowing for rapid decision-making
Peace of mind through accurate, repeatable, and traceable results
Reduced latency, as pipes are reburied more quickly
Ability to conserve data over time, making it possible
To compare damage evolution
Prevention of environmental catastrophe
ASME B31G and B318 compliant
VXintegrity - SURFACE DAMAGE
NDT PLANT INSPECTION
Plant owners come up against constant difficulties in obtaining accurate and traceable thickness-loss measurements on curved and complex geometries. The current manual techniques are not repeatable enough, as the measurements are too dependent on the technician’s skills and experience. Because determining the thickness-loss profile is challenging, safety factors are added, caused by a loss of confidence in the results.
The Surface Damage Inspection Module delivers absolute measurements of thickness loss—with reduced possibility of human error— on curved and complex geometries that plant owners can fully trust when making the decision to shut down their plant or refinery for maintenance work.
Highest accuracy on digital reconstruction
Technician-independent measurements free from human error at the acquisition stage
Versatile measurement method for all geometry types, such as spheres, cylindrical heads, tank floors, etc.
Multi-curvature surface damage assessment approach for all types of damages, such as corrosion, dent, and gouge
Ability to export inspection results into CSV or STL files
VXintegrity - AEROSPACE
MRO companies, aircraft manufacturers, and airlines that perform NDT inspections for in-service aircraft maintenance face increasing pressure to complete their assessments as quickly as possible without sacrificing accuracy. The problem is that NDT inspections take time and, the longer an airplane is grounded, the more airlines lose money.
SmartDENT is a dedicated 3D visualization software designed for assessment of dent damage located on aircraft surfaces. More accurate and faster than traditional methods, the software limits the operators’ impact on measurements and shortens the time needed to generate final reports, providing OEMs with comprehensive data that require further analysis.
Algorithm sensitive to the finest detail
Interaction rule optimized for aerospace, facilitating communication on the extent of damage
Defect characterization on different aircraft components, sizes, and surface finishes
Guided workflow approach that simplifies the measurement extraction of 3D scan data and obtains the exact dimensions required for the assessment
VXintegrity - DAMAGE MONITORING
In a context of aging infrastructure, asset owners do not have the resources or capacity to repair everything. They must be able to digitize measurements and compare data between maintenance rounds. If damages have worsened, they can prioritize and plan the repair appropriately. Tracking damages over time requires a traceable monitoring solution.
The Damage Monitoring enables asset owners to confidently enter the digital age. It is the only NDT technique available on the market with the required accuracy, noise level, and data quality to characterize, follow, and compare damage evolution over time—detecting even the slightest variation in geometry or thickness.
Calculation of wear, corrosion, and erosion rates over time
Calculation of deformation, alignment, and ovality from created nominals or existing nominals
2D or 3D inspection capabilities
Advanced and automatic report generation
Easy-to-use metrology tool kit, optimized for industrial maintenance applications
Pipeline Module Example
Click and drag the blue slider to see the pit-gauge analysis of the corroded pipe. Features have been grouped based on interaction rules and estimated burst pressures have been calculated based on ASME B31G formulas.
Aerospace Module Example
Click and drag the blue slider to see the depth analysis of the dented leading edge. Features have been identified based on user inputs and maximum depths reported. The A/W ratio has been calculated and features either pass or fail based on manufacturer critera.
Surface Damage Module Example
Click and drag the blue slider to see the corrosion analysis completed on the elbow. A nominal parent material surface has been created using a proprietary algorithm and corrosion depths have been calculated.
