Delay law calculator extended in M2M Capture V2.3

By Frederic Reverdy, M2M Product Sales Specialist at Eddyfi Technologies Another peak view at the 2.3 version of M2M Capture coming up in the next couple of days. M2M Capture can handle […]


Pitting detection with TFM and MANTIS

Here is a comparison of a linear scanning using 8 elements focused close to the backwall and a TFM using 64 elements with 5L64 probe. The gain is set to […]


Inconel weld-inspection

Using Total Focusing Method (TFM) for the inspection of inconel weld, a extended vizualisation area is obtained. Defects are detected close to the top and bottom surfaces. ©Karl Deutsch


Weld inspection

This article shows a video of a multi-group weld inspection, using 2 phased-array and a pair of TOFD probes. With a PRF up to 20 kHZ and the streamlined CAPTURE […]


High temperature hydrogen attack (HTHA)

HTHA damage is detected using AUBT method (Advanced Ultrasonic Backscattering Technique) that evaluates the frequency and velocity dependence to a non-damaged area This technique requires skillful operators to recognize backscatter […]

Nozzle-to-pipe inspection from the nozzle side

By Frederic Reverdy, M2M Product Sales Specialist at Eddyfi Technologies A while back we posted an article showing the application developed for Capture (GEKKO and MANTIS software) for the inspection of nozzle-to-pipe […]


Multi-group weld inspection using MANTIS

This article shows a video of a multi-group weld inspection, using 2 phased-array and a pair of TOFD probes. With a PRF up to 20 kHZ and the streamlined CAPTURE […]


Nozzle inspection

M2M has developed a unique nozzle inspection application that allows: – to define a nozzle geometry on board – to display in real-time a cross-section of the nozzle superimposed to sectorial or […]


Thick boiler tube inspection

 Thick boiler tube application (150 mm), sizing of small defects (1.5 mm).64-element aperture allows to focus the beam and see the tip diffraction.  


Welds

Welds are often critical parts to inspect. They are subject to huge constrains and have to be inspected with NDT techniques. Phased-array technologies provide a wide range of solutions for […]
