Waygate Technologies will be presenting its latest software, hardware, and service offerings at two booths as a global debut. This will provide an excellent opportunity for clients and industry professionals to learn about the latest advances in NDT solutions. 

Read the complete story below to explore these technologies and their utility.

At the First Booth: Industrial X-Ray and Computed Tomography (CT)

Waygate Technologies will present its cutting-edge industrial X-Ray and computed tomography (CT) inspection solutions for various industries, such as electronics, automotive, and battery manufacturing, at the first booth (3404 in Hall 3).

Waygate will showcase its cutting-edge industrial inspection systems, such as: 

•    Phoenix Speed|scan HD

It is a high-speed microCT system created specifically for inspection during the manufacturing process. It comes with an automated robotic loading system that includes a dual manipulator and double airlock, enabling continuous operation.

The Phoenix Speed|scan HD is capable of producing highly detailed, three-dimensional images of products and equipment, allowing clients to identify potential defects or failures before they become critical. 

Its high-speed scanning capabilities and automated loading system make it an ideal solution for clients who require high-volume, high-precision inspection of complex components and assemblies.

•    Phoenix Nanome|x system

It is a high-performance nano-focus system, particularly well-suited for electronic inspection. It combines high-resolution 2D X-Ray technology, PlanarCT, and 3D CT in a single system, enabling clients to obtain highly accurate and reliable inspection results.

The Phoenix Nanome|x system is capable of scanning even the smallest electronic components, such as integrated circuits and printed circuit boards, with extreme precision. 

Its high-resolution imaging capabilities and advanced software tools enable clients to analyze and interpret the data quickly and efficiently, leading to improved productivity and reduced downtime.

Furthermore, Waygate Technologies is also presenting a newly developed product from its Phoenix portfolio during the exhibition. 

This product is designed to cater to the growing demand worldwide for broader scanning coverage and heavier sample weight capacity, making it an ideal solution for clients who need to inspect large, heavy components and assemblies.

Moreover, higher demands from clients for such industrial radiography developments are driving growth in the market.

According to data insights from BIS Research, the global industrial computed radiography market is estimated to reach $68.80 million in 2033 from $59.10 million in 2022, at a growth rate of 1.49% during the forecast period 2023-2033. 

At the Second Booth: Ultrasonic Testing, Advanced Imaging, and Robotic Inspection

At the second booth of the exhibition, Waygate Technologies will be presenting its latest ultrasonic testing solutions, with powerful imaging and advanced robotic inspection capabilities. 

At booth 7423 in hall 7, visitors can expect to see new additions to the Krautkrämer family of ultrasonic testing, which are capable of detecting the smallest defects in a range of materials such as metals, plastics, and composites, which are as follows:

•    Krautkrämer USM 100 Pro Edition

It is a high-performance ultrasonic testing solution that can detect small flaws with ease and will be on display as one of the highlights of the exhibition.
Moreover, the Krautkrämer USM 100 Pro edition has features such as advanced connectivity and analytics that increase operator confidence in inspection results and improve asset management and predictive maintenance.

•    Krautkrämer Spotvision

It has been developed from collaborative efforts with automotive manufacturers to meet the industry’s specific requirements.

The Krautkrämer Spotvision works with the Mentor UT phased array flaw detector to offer reliable and fast spot weld inspection. It is known for its speed and accuracy, which is essential in high-volume production environments where time is of the essence.

•    USIP|xs CV

A multi-channel conventional ultrasonic instrument will also be showcased at the booth. This solution can be easily integrated into any automated or semi-automated inspection system, making it an ideal solution for clients who need to inspect a variety of materials.

•    Everest Mentor Visual iQ (MViQ) VideoProbe

It is a video borescope that incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) to enable remote visual inspection. 

The device is known for its high level of precision and accuracy, even in challenging environments, and is used extensively in several industries, including aerospace, energy, and petrochemicals. 

With its built-in AI capabilities, the MViQ VideoProbe can identify and highlight potential defects in real time, providing a detailed analysis of the inspection area.

•    Mentor Flex

It is a portable and durable inspection solution that allows for rapid and precise inspections. 

•    InspectionWorks

Waygate Technologies is committed to supporting industrial customers in their digital transformation journey. To achieve this, the company offers a comprehensive data management and analytics suite called InspectionWorks. 

This suite enables customers to collect inspection data from all critical components of an asset or a plant and provides automatic defect detection, predictive maintenance, and advanced analytics through artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.

•    The Robot, BIKE

The final solution to be showcased at the booth is the mobile inspection and maintenance robot, BIKE. 

This robot is equipped with magnetic wheels, enabling it to easily navigate and access difficult-to-reach areas and confined spaces within power plant facilities, oil and gas, and chemical industries.

The robot's mobility and versatility make it an efficient solution for clients who need to inspect and maintain their facilities. 

With BIKE's capabilities, operators can quickly and easily detect defects and carry out repairs or maintenance tasks, improving the overall productivity and safety of their operations.


The presentation of Waygate Technologies at the upcoming Control exhibition will also display the importance of industrial inspection solutions which are essential for ensuring the safety, efficiency, and longevity of industrial assets.

With the integration of advanced technologies such as AI and NDT, inspections have become more accurate, reliable, and insightful, allowing for the detection of defects, prediction of maintenance needs, and optimization of asset performance.

This has led to cost savings, improved productivity, and enhanced safety, making regular and thorough inspections a crucial investment for industrial companies.

By staying ahead of potential risks and challenges, companies can remain competitive in the market and maintain their reputation for reliability and safety.
