GEKKO applications


 
Intended for industries such as aerospace, metallurgy, oil & gas, power generation and automotive, GEKKO covers a wide range of applications from corrosion mapping to crack detection and characterization in welded pipes and plates. Thanks to its advanced features, GEKKO can handle thick components, detect and characterize misoriented defects. Superimposition of CAD files to ultrasonic data helps the operators interpret measurements and lowers the rate of false alarms.
