Over the last decade, advancements in electronic hardware and software have revolutionized ultrasonic testing.
No longer is the technique reliant upon amplitude and range measurement or operator skill and diligence in interpreting a 'live' A-scan display.
It is now possible to multi-plex between transducer elements and manipulate the beam angularly or directionally to achieve volumetric coverage.
Different techniques, firing sequences and test parameters can be electronically combined to maximize performance.
Scan motion can be automatically controlled and monitored and a variety of automated or mechanized deployment systems can be used in remote, difficult or hazardous environments.
Analogue signals can be captured, digitised and processed in real time to create very high resolution multi-elevation or 3-dimensional images which can be quantized to display any test parameter in a variety of presentation formats.
All data, including calibration data, can be recorded, stored, transmitted, retrieved and copied.
Off-line, the as-recorded data can be processed, analysed and reported without any degradation.
However, despite these major advancements and the improvements they afford, like all inspection methods, ultrasonic testing has its limitations - particularly when used to measure reflectivity.
We offer a comprehensive range of advanced ultrasonic testing solutions applicable to simple tasks like wall thickness measurement and weld inspection through to highly complex tasks such as the assessment of micro-structural damage.
These include manually, mechanically or robotically deployed contact, gap scan, immersion & jet probe techniques.
