Flaws can be found in every type of material and component, no matter the method of manufacturing, processing, or finishing used. Selecting the proper detection method is crucial, because, even if a flaw is not actually a defect, you still want to be able to detect and evaluate them.
Our reliance on large-scale machinery has grown greatly over the past few decades, making it more important than ever to ensure the reliability, efficiency, and safety of our day-to-day use of these systems.
Friction stir weld (FSW) inspections in aerospace manufacturing are challenging for ultrasound technicians not necessarily because they require specialized computations or complex techniques but because scanning with conventional probe setups can be so time consuming.
If you’ve ever worked in a lab, you know an optical microscope uses an eyepiece and objective to magnify a small object. But as technology continues to advance, digital microscopes are becoming more popular.
Eddyfi Technologies announced the latest release of M2M Capture. Natively embedded on both M2M Gekko and M2M Mantis PAUT flaw detectors, Capture v2.3 offers new advanced features and dedicated tools to improve the user experience and speed up NDT inspection.
