• GE Mentor EM with Mentor Create Can Transform Nondestructive Testing though Instant Collaboration and Access to Critical Information;
• Underscore’s GE’s Leadership In Building More Intelligent Machines.

For the first time, regardless of skill level, technicians can immediately access the critical information and guidance they need to perform efficient and highly accurate weld, rotary and surface inspections in the most complex industrial environments.

The work of eddy current technicians, who specialize in the electromagnetic modality, is highly critical, performed in challenging conditions and requires extreme accuracy. Eddy currents are electrical currents induced within conductors by changing magnetic fields. They are commonly used in nondestructive testing (NDT) and corrosion monitoring of structures with painted surfaces. Traditionally, technicians relied on service bulletins or paper-based instructions that outline each step of the test to ensure accuracy and their own safety. This, however, can add to the complexity, cost and timeliness of the testing, and provide opportunity for error, often requiring a second technician to read the instructions and record the result, which itself is an error trap.

By decreasing the need for paper-based service bulletins and cumbersome manuals, the powerful new GE Mentor EM technology replaces legacy processes and takes full advantage of the power of the Industrial Internet. This new technology makes eddy current inspections easier, more accurate and faster than ever before. Technicians are given instant access to critical information by simply connecting to a local network to share data, immediately download up-to-date procedures and workflows and collaborate with Level-3 experts in real-time all directly from the device. Additionally, reports can be generated on the spot, from the site of inspection. The GE Mentor EM application-specific user interface makes it easy to use across multiple industries, such as oil & gas, aerospace, automotive, power generation and manufacturing. By placing workflows directly on the device, GE Mentor EM helps to ensure strict compliance with codes, guidelines and standard practices.

Leveraging innovative GE Mentor Create software, manufacturers and service providers can create customizable, on-device inspection workflow applications that provide consistent, up-to-date and easy-to-follow instructions for technicians of all levels. Inspection technicians gain easy access to on-device photos, procedures and videos for reference while setting up, acquiring data or analyzing data. By limiting the range of adjustments available to the operator, the opportunity for error is substantially minimized. Depending on skill level, operators can select to use the device in “Expert Mode” or “Workflow on Device Mode.”

“In high consequence inspection environments, it is essential that technicians have access to the information they need, when they need it,” said Dave Jankowski, North American Commercial NPI Leader, GE’s Measurement & Control, a GE Oil & Gas division. “GE Mentor EM with Mentor Create eliminates the cumbersome paper trail traditionally associated with electromagnetic eddy current testing, dramatically improving the safety, efficiency and accuracy of the testing process. Additionally, GE’s innovative technology will help transform the industry by bridging the skills gap and addressing the current global shortage of experienced inspection personnel in the workforce today.”

The high-resolution display is easy to see in any light, the touchscreen is designed to work with gloves and the interface allows technicians of all levels to easily communicate with one another. For more details, please visit .
