MANTIS


COMPACT 16:64PR PHASED-ARRAY FLAW DETECTOR

M2M is strengthening its range of field equipment with MANTIS, a light and economical version of GEKKO using the same technologies and software interface Capture. With a 16:64 pulsers receivers architecture, MANTIS combines standard PAUT, conventional UT, TOFD and real-time Total Focusing Method (TFM). 

- PAUT | sectorial, linear & compound scanning

- Conventional UT channels | pulse-echo & dual techniques

- TOFD | time-of-flight diffraction with lateral wave straightening

- TFM | total focusing method in real-time for expertise 64:64 parallel channels

- ISO & ASTM code compliant
