Illustration of Eddy Current inspection
In Eddy Current inspection, electrical currents are induced in a conductive material by a changing magnetic field. The flow of these Eddy Currents can be measured. Material defects cause interruptions or modifications of the Eddy Current flow, warning the operator. Eddy Currents are also affected by the electrical conductivity and magnetic permeability of a material. Therefore, this inspection method can also be used for Material Sorting applications.
Illustration of Ultrasonic inspection
In Ultrasonic inspection, high-frequency sound waves are transmitted into a material to detect imperfections or to locate changes in material properties. The most commonly used Ultrasonic testing method is pulse echo. A transducer emits sound waves into a product, and receives the reflections (echoes) from any internal imperfections, changes in geometry or texture.
