Austenitic welds

Ultrasonic inspection of austenitic welds is qualified for in-service inspection since beginning of 2000’s. Implementation of the solution based on the GEKKO associated to DMA probe makes work easier and […]


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 […]

Y-joint inspection

By Frédéric REVERDY, Business Development Manager in M2M A while back we had a post about a T-joint inspection with GEKKO. We just received a nice carbon steel Y-joint from Sonaspection […]


Surface breaking crack characterization with TFM

By Frédéric REVERDY, Business Development Manager in M2M A while back I had a post about surface breaking crack characterization using TFM on calibrated notches (read here). This post showed […]


Nozzle inspection on GEKKO

By Frédéric REVERDY, Business Development Manager in M2M Ultrasonic Inspection of nozzles has always been a challenge due to the geometrical complexity of the component, the changing surface curvature and […]


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 […]


Corrosion

Corrosion can induce wall thickness and pitting. Challenge is to map fast with high accuracy and high probability of detection.The GEKKO, associated to 2 axis-scanner, offers the best solution for […]
