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.
Uniquely compatible with up to 3-axis commercial scanners and with the possibility to define nozzle on-board, GEKKO is to be used for encoded nozzle inspections. The true-distance mapping of indications helps locating and sizing indications.

ACRYLIC GLASS INSPECTION
This video shows an electronic scanning of a PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate also called acrylic glass) plate using the flaw detector GEKKO, a 5 Mhz probe by Imasonic and the Bras Matryx scanner from Ekoscan.
Mapping improvement with TFM. The dead zone is reduced: corrosion detection till 1mm under the surface, and the full description of the corroded profile for more accurate measurements.

SCREW THREAD INSPECTION
CHARACTERIZATION OF MISORIENTED DEFECT
Composite inspection using 3-axis encoded scanner.
The Gekko is the only portable unit compatible with 3-axis scanners making it possible to use with mouse type scanner for very fast scanning of large plates.
