Ultrasonic flaw detection has been a valuable quality assurance tool for decades. Since the 1940s, inspectors have used the laws of physics that govern the propagation of sound waves through solid materials to detect hidden cracks, voids, porosity and other internal discontinuities in metals, composites, plastics and ceramics.
Olympus NDT has introduced a self-guided Phased Array Ultrasound Tutorial on its Web site www.olympusndt.com.This tutorial is an introduction to ultrasonic phased array testing, both for newcomers and for more
The BondMaster 1000e+ composite inspection instrument is optimized to detect internal defects or delaminations in composite structures used for aerospace, marine, automotive or other manufacturing applications.
The R.R. Moore rotating beam fatigue system applies flexural stress on materials through failure, and can be used as a hands-on tool for classroom testing to demonstrate the basic principles of fatigue.
