04.062022The EXTENDE Inc. team is growingCategory "More to Extende" | No comment

EXTENDE Inc. opened in 2011 with just one employee, Vice President Erica Schumacher. During the past decade, EXTENDE Inc. has relocated to Virginia, and our product offerings have greatly expanded, but our staff has not.

Now that is changing too!

We are pleased to announce that Starr D'Auria has just joined EXTENDE Inc. as an NDE Engineer. She has Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from LeTourneau University, Level II training in VT and UT, additional training in ET, RT, PT and MT plus vendor oversight experience with both NDT and welding. We are very pleased to have her join our team, bringing her enthusiasm, knowledge and interest in continuous learning to EXTENDE Inc..

03.302022Compatibility has been enhanced between CIVA & CIVA Analysis 2021 and Olympus systems and probes!Category "CIVA Software" | No comment

Several years after becoming compatible with *rdt, *.oud and *.opd data files from Olympus, CIVA Analysis 2021 can now read acquisitions performed with Olympus Omniscan X3 systems (*.odat extension).

This lets users of the latest technologies from Olympus benefit from the advantages of powerful features such as the 3D view, the identification of indications by the efficient segmentation algorithm, as well as the large capability to automate and customize the analysis process available in CIVA Analysis, plus many other features. The image above shows an example of an acquisition data file including PA UT compound channels and a TOFD channel.

CIVA 2021 also now includes seven DLA and DMA Olympus probes in its probe manufacturers' library, simplifying the definition of probe parameters for an Inspection Simulation in CIVA. This leads to a catalogue with more than 150 Olympus probes ready to use for simulations in CIVA and a total of about 300 probes from various manufacturers in this catalogue! Of course, users can still define any type of probe as soon as they know the parameters from a datasheet.

All UT probe and system suppliers are very welcome to contact us if they are interested in having their data files compatible with CIVA or to include their probes in CIVA, the leading NDT simulation software and the unique Multi-Format UT analysis software!

Do not hesitate to contact us if you need more information about CIVA.
