The WeldRover is an automated scanner for nondestructive testing (NDT) on metal plate, pipes, vessels and welded components from 4 inches in diameter to flat surfaces and longseam welds 30 inches in diameter or larger. The scanner can be used with the modular OmniScan MX flaw detector or TomoScan Focus LT to provide phased array, time of flight diffraction and advanced conventional ultrasound capabilities. The scanner is operated using a two-button remote control and speed selection switch. Data acquisition is acquired with either an OmniScan MXU for direct acquisition or Focus LT for computer-based acquisition. Any one of the company’s ultrasound or phased array instruments with an encoder input is compatible with the scanner and requires no programming besides entering the encoder information.
