Will Your Archive System Survive the “Drop Test”?
What happens if a stack of radiographic films falls off your desk, or a USB drive full of images crashes and has a file system failure?
With a digital archive solution, all the things you just thought of wouldn’t happen.
- With the DICONDE standard for digital NDT images, each image is its own mini-database.
- Essential information such as the component IDs, inspection dates, and work order numbers can be encoded as metadata in the image file, which ensures that a scan can always be associated with a particular inspection–you can even include information on who took the scan and who inspected the image.
- An indexed DICONDE archive doesn’t care about folder structure and generates a searchable, database index for quick access to images, regardless of their age or other image data.
