Manual X-Y Scanner

No Comments
The Glider is a manual 2-axis encoding scanner designed primarily for the inspection of composite and aluminum aircraft parts such as fuselages. The instrument has a cost-efficient design, multi-technology capability and lightweight but rugged construction. It is compatible with phased array (PA) or conventional ultrasonic (UT) probes, as well as conventional eddy current (EC) and eddy current array (ECA) probes. Both axes offer a free-running, incremental or lock mode. The standard, pivot-equipped suction cup pods enable contour following on curved surfaces while the optional magnetic mounting pods extend the versatility of this scanner to corrosion-mapping applications involving ferromagnetic materials. With a light, aluminum frame and removable index arm, the instrument can be transported or reassembled for use on multiple parts. It is available in three sizes, providing scan areas of 46 by 46 centimeters, 61 by 61 centimeters, and 91 by 91 centimeters. It will interface with the OmniScan modular flaw detector or any other data acquisition system.

X-Ray Inspection

No Comments
The C-Arm Inspection System is for quality control imaging in the areas of casting process verification and product analysis for automotive component manufacturers. The system has an image intensifier coupled to a high-resolution high-bit-depth digital camera for real-time viewing and a programmable computer numerical controller (CNC) to manage part positioning. The system, which allows a full 30-degree angle of detection (tilt), handles scanning at obtuse angles. The system integrates into the production process and can be directly interfaced in a robotic manufacturing cell. Additional features include: image intensifier, amorphous silicon panel or LDA configuration; energy sources of 160 kilovolts, 225 kilovolts and 320 kilovolts; static or dynamic image viewing; image enhancement and archival system; a part envelope of 610 millimeters by 610 millimeters and 50-kilogram capacity; 30-degree (+ or -) tilt, 914 millimeters up/down motion; programmable or manual operation; US 21CFR1020.40, UVV, DIN54113, VDE-0-100, CE, EUATOM 96/29 and IEC 529 compliance.

UV Lamps

No Comments
The Maxima ML-3500 Series ultraviolet lamps use micro discharge light (MDL) technology, plus a unique filter and bulb/reflector, to deliver up to 10 times the UV-A (365nm) output of conventional HID inspection lamps. With these lamps, NDT inspectors can see surface defects, hydrocarbon contamination and other flaws that escape less powerful lamps. The lamps are available in 120 volts, 230 volts, 240 volts and 100-volt AC versions, as well as battery-operated versions that include a 12-volt, 7 amp/hr rechargeable battery, which will operate the lamp for two hours. A battery charger and carrying case are included.

Leak Testing

No Comments
The Model E2 leak testing instrument has a built-in Micro-Flow sensor (IGLS) and two levels of fill/balance for faster test cycles. The device allows the operator to remotely monitor leak tests over a network, using the E2 Ethernet connection and Leak–Tek program Version 5.0. The unit has a touch screen with graphical color display. The instrument is for use in pressure applications with leak rates from 0.1 cubic centimeter per minute.

Noncontact Displacement Sensor

No Comments
The KD-2306 is a noncontact linear displacement measuring instrument based on balanced bridge eddy current technology. It makes high-precision static and dynamic measurements, and supports ambient, moderate temperature and cryogenic rated sensors. Applications range from lab work to production and process automation. The DIN rail mount packaging makes the system ideal for integration into OEM equipment and industrial control applications. The KD-2306 senses both ferrous and non-ferrous metal targets. The RoHS-compliant, CE-marked system includes the electronics, sensor and interconnecting cable. Standard sensing ranges are from 0.02 inch to 2.4 inches, with 0.01% FS resolution or better, and nonlinearity as little as 0.25% FS. More than 30 sensor models are available, including single and dual coil, shielded and unshielded designs.
