JD7 specialises in the design, development and implementation of specialist inspection, replication and material sampling equipment. JD7 provides unique design, development and implementation solutions for industrial, nuclear, aerospace and process plants. We have carried out development and implementation for organisations such as Rolls-Royce Aerospace, Rolls-Royce Marine, MoD and Balfour Beatty.
RVI - Remote Visual Inspection
RVI allows examination and inspection of components within extreme space envelopes and hostile environments. Our experience has included inspection in extreme environments such as (radiation, temperature, submerged – oil and water).
A surface sampling technique has been developed where a spherical cutter allows a scoop of material to be removed from an in-service component. The technique utilizes an exceptionally fine cutting process, which removes the minimum material required and leaves a very low stress concentration point at the sample site.
