Eddyfi Reinventing Pulsed Eddy Current. Again.
#914

The new wave of improvements pushes the limits of pulsed eddy current testing even further.

Dedicated to advanced NDT inspection technologies, Eddyfi is proud to announce the release of Lyft® version 1.2 and Lyft Pro, and the launch of its new improved line of pulsed eddy current (PEC) probes.

Version 1.2 of the Lyft software refines existing features in a number of ways. The compensated wall thickness (CWT) tool is nearly twice as precise compared to the previous version 1.1 and it can now be used on a wider range of defect types and shapes. Lyft 1.2 brings improved performances on small defects and the ability to size corrosion near massive metal objects/geometries such as flanges by actively compensating for their electromagnetic contribution, resulting in better flaw sizing and improved versatility.

TecScan introduces the ultraSCAN Mx Flatbed Squirter System
#912

TecScan is proud to introduce the ultraSCANTM Mx system which is specially designed for Ultrasonic Testing (UT) of Large Aerospace Composite Panels. With the increasing demand for composite components in the aerospace industry, inspection time is becoming a critical factor in overall production rates. TecScan’s flatbed scanners are designed for high throughput inspection of composite panels and components.

The standard configuration of the ultraSCAN Mx is a 5-axis system (X, Y, Y2, Z, Z2) with an inspection envelop of 3.5 x 2.5m. It comes with a specially designed water delivery system that provides a stable and repeatable UT signal. ultraSCAN Mx offers an efficient way to maximize the scanning rate with the use of multiple ultrasonic probes integrated into a specially designed water-box system. This multi-channel technology minimizes the amount of indexes required to scan the parts, reducing the total scanning time.. Instead of moving a single pair of probes across the surface of the parts, arrays of probes are used in pairs to scan across the inspected panel, the elements of the emitting array being fired simultaneously or one after the other.

Videoscope iRis DVRx with 3mm Thin Insertion Probe: Quality and Compact Size
#904

Fiberscope.net has added a small diameter iRis DVRx to their professional videoscopes product line. Previously, this modification of a popular iRis videoscope was available only with 4mm and 6mm articulating probes. The probe diameter is a crucial parameter which effectively defines the suitability of a video inspection device for a particular job. The iRis DVRx model is one of the most affordable PRO grade video borescopes in its market segment. Adding a small diameter option will definitely increase the spectrum of applications for this already popular model.

The new modification comes with a 3mm (0.118’’) probe, the ideal diameter for high precision inspections of aircraft and automotive engines. The extra durable tungsten braided probe features two-way articulation and ranges between 1.5 and 4m (4.9’ and 13.1’ respectively) in length. The superb quality image is provided by a top notch "chip on the tip" CMOS camera integrated in a short distal end. Expectedly, the probe is waterproof up to 14.7 psi as well as oil-proof and 5% saline resistant.

DolphiTech to Release Extendable NDT Platform
#903

DolphiTech today announced plans to offer a new range of ultrasound instruments with extended capabilities for non-destructive testing and inspection of materials. Based on its ultrasound- and transducer technology DolphiTech will offer NDT solutions with interchangeable transducers for different materials and applications. Product launch is planned for October 2017. The new system – codenamed DolphiCam 2 – will include a choice of transducers over a wide frequency range. DolphiCam 2 will also include features for robotics integration, general network connectivity and remote expert inspections (Remote NDT). DolphiTech will also intensify its efforts to integrate 3D positioning, giving inspectors improved structural awareness through CAD data integration and more.

"The customers want flexible NDT systems based on ultrasound imaging technology. DolphiTechs current product range is optimized for CFRP, but we want to offer a complete solution for multi-material structures. Customers has asked us for flexibility to inspect different materials as well as multimaterial joints. And we want to improve the geometric access to the material, very important in the automotive industry. This is all now becoming a reality", says Eskil Skoglund, Head of R&D at DolphiTech.

The World's fastest metals analyser Vulcan, launched by Oxford Instruments
#901

Oxford Instruments has launched Vulcan, the fastest metals analyser with the most advanced reporting tools on the market. Vulcan is an ergonomic, balanced handheld LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) analyser with a simple user interface. Vulcan has been designed for the rapid identification of a wide range of alloys in manufacturing plants within multiple industries and the scrap metal processing/recycling markets world-wide.

Fast, accurate, durable
Vulcan is the fastest metals analyser available, taking just one second to measure metal alloys - that’s faster than any XRF (X-ray fluorescence) analyser or any other laser product on the market. In quality control and quality assurance this means that large inventories of incoming raw materials or finished parts can be checked very quickly. Large quantities of scrap metal can be sorted in scrapyards easily and fast.
