Non Destructive Inspection
Eddy Current & Ultrasonic equipment
DIMENSIONAL MEASUREMENT METHOD
Dimensional measurement is based on the travel time of longitudinal waves in the inspected object.
The acoustic impedance is specific to each environment or material. For every change of impedance, a portion of the Ultrasonic waves is being reflected.
We know the sound wave speeds in both the coupling water (acoustic path surrounding the inspected part) and the product material, as well as the distance between the probe and the center of rotation.
We can then analyze the signals being picked up by the transducers to determine the wall thickness, the outer and inner diameters, the eccentricity, ovality, etc…
Some examples of applications
Inspection of tubes and cables for Metal, Automotive and Nuclear Industries directly on the production line, and for all type of materials : metal (ferrous or non-ferrous), fiber, plastic, glass..
Using an Ultrasonic rotating head, the measurements are performed by 2 Ultrasonic transducers rotating around the product. The very high rotational speed and real time analysis provide a complete dimensional measurement inspection.
MultiUTscan : for defect detection and dimensional measurement
MultiUTscan is a powerful and extremely accurate multi-channel & multi-frequency Ultrasonic inspection instrument.
It is dedicated for flaw detection and dimensional measurement of ID, OD, and wall thickness. The live inspection screens and user friendly interface make the ultrasonic configurations quick and easy to setup.
MultiUTscan is controlling all our UT equipment: the Ultrasonic rotating head RotoUTscan, the dimensional rotating head RotoUTdim, and the immersion tank.
Probus is a supervision software collecting information provided by various NDT equipment and process their data.
It is designed to be integrated as a quality control tool directly on the customer’s production line, to collect and display the signals of all the connected NDT instruments.
This supervision software is able to analyze the data, to communicate with the line to make a sorting decision, and to produce detailed inspection reports.
RotoUTdim : dimensional measurement system
RotoUTdim is a rotating head performing diameter and wall thickness measurements, checking concentricity and ovality, for product diameter from 4 to 200mm.
The part to inspect is guided and moving through the water box, while 2 ultrasonic transducers are rotating at a very high speed, checking 100% of the product.
The transmission of the signals is contactless, and more than 500 measures per revolution are analyzed to display the desired dimensions in real time.
