ew software packages which cut thermal imaging engineers’ survey/reporting time by 25% by streamlining the data capture, input and analysis procedures associated with thermal imaging report generation and maintenance monitoring, have been developed by thermographic services specialist, Ti Thermal Imaging Ltd.
TICOR™ is believed to be the first Android-based thermal imaging reporting application which provides immediate one click report generation. Installing the software on an android tablet enables engineers to enter data from a thermal imaging camera directly into the tablet and produce instant diagnostic reports while they are still on site with just one click at the end of each TI survey.
The TICOR™ software can also be integrated into WEBCOR™ – Ti Thermal Imaging’s new online predictive maintenance and condition monitoring programme – and, again with just one click, the data captured on TICOR™ can be uploaded onto WEBCOR™ to provide data comparison and tracking of any changes to give early indication of potential issues or problem areas.
Both software programmes are compatible with any thermal imaging cameras that produce images in various formats as well as the recently-launched Seek Thermal camera attachment for mobile phones. They provide a particularly efficient solution for monitoring and managing thermal imaging information for multi-site operations.

• Measure distance between spots directly from image
• Easier inspection routes
• Quickly ensure correct image path names
The software packages are the brainchild of Richard Wallace, Managing Director of Ti Thermal Imaging which has over 12 years’ thermographic surveying experience, and were born out of his frustration at the length of time engineers have to spend manually copying data to produce a report after a site visit.
Wallace says: “Engineers currently spend around an hour for each three hours of surveying, manually transferring data from TI cameras and cross-referencing and matching it with the images, and I thought there had to be a more efficient way of producing reports. We looked at what was available on the market and none of the software we found did what we wanted it to do. We’ve worked with a software specialist to create the TICOR™ and WEBCOR™ programmes so that engineers aren’t spending another two hours producing reports at the end of a six hour survey.”
Wallace adds: “With thermal imaging now being so widely used across a wide platform of industries from oil, gas, water to construction, manufacturing and retail, there are so many applications where TICOR™ and WEBCOR™ will provide engineers with a cost-effective, time-efficient method of capturing and reporting data instantly and on an on-going basis.”
