Automated Inspection Systems

Evident designs and delivers automated inspection systems that meet the most challenging needs.

Our systems utilize phased array and eddy current array to inspect the full volume and surface of various products and profiles in many manufacturing industries, such as metal, aerospace, transportation, power generation, and oil & gas.

We introduced inspection systems with ultrasonic phased array technology in the early 2000s and have since delivered more than 100 systems worldwide.

Benefits of Evident automated inspection systems:

  • All fields of expertise coordinated under the same roof
  • Exceptional quality from a recognized brand
  • Durable, scalable, and reliable solutions
  • Ease of operation with minimum operator skill dependency
  • High throughput

Olympus Systems Instrumentation Wheel of Advantages

Committed to bringing innovative solutions to every customer.

Our global sales force collaborates daily with potential customers and our experts to ensure that the requirements of the systems are carefully defined prior to agreeing on contractual terms.

The team designs, manufactures, and integrates all the necessary components in a dedicated project structure to build turnkey inspection systems that meet stringent requirements. With a dedicated integration hall and team of engineers, we have the resources to make sure each customer is satisfied throughout the entire process.

Typical projects include a kick-off meeting, design reviews, factory acceptance tests, installation site acceptance tests, training, and production startup. Once finalized, the project is transferred to our global service network for support during the system’s lifetime.

Turnkey System Essentials

Systems Instrumentation - Project Management

Project Management

Evident has the experience, knowledge, and resources in project management to ensure your solution is delivered on time and meets or exceeds the expected specifications and performances.
