GEKKO PT


 

PHASED-ARRAY FLAW DETECTOR

 

With a 64-channel parallel architecture, GEKKO is the only flaw detector offering at the same time conventional UT, standard PAUT, TOFD and real-time Total Focusing Method (TFM). Some procedures require standard UT, others TOFD or PA. Why choose? With Gekko everything is included.

- 64:64 parallel channels

- + 4 additional TOFD

- Conventional UT channels

- International code compliance: ASME, AWS, API, ASTM, ISO-EN

 

2PA+TOFD

 

 

ADVANCED FEATURES

 

Gekko is the first portable phased-array flaw detector capable of driving matrix arrays and to perform Total Focusing Methods (TFM) in real time. With state-of-the-art hardware and software, Gekko provides unique features and will continue to improve to follow specification evolutions.
