Analysis on M2M Gekko Capture 2.3

By Frederic Reverdy, M2M Product Sales Specialist at Eddyfi Technologies The following image is an inspection done with two phased-array probes. In the new version of M2M Capture, it is now possible to […]


Delay law calculator extended in M2M Capture V2.3

By Frederic Reverdy, M2M Product Sales Specialist at Eddyfi Technologies Another peak view at the 2.3 version of M2M Capture coming up in the next couple of days. M2M Capture can handle […]


Pitting detection with TFM and MANTIS

Here is a comparison of a linear scanning using 8 elements focused close to the backwall and a TFM using 64 elements with 5L64 probe. The gain is set to […]


Offshore Wind Power T-joint construction weld

Application of TFM for defect sizing in welded joints. These below pictures show T-joints at the offshore windmill construction. The material thickness to inspect is 40 mm to 60 mm. Here […]


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 […]


PAUT T-joint inspection

  Crack detection in a T-joint using GEKKO. We are looking at a 5-mm under-bead crack in one of the fillets. The probe is positioned along the branch on the […]


Inconel weld-inspection

Using Total Focusing Method (TFM) for the inspection of inconel weld, a extended vizualisation area is obtained. Defects are detected close to the top and bottom surfaces. ©Karl Deutsch


PMMA 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 […]


Small diameter pipe inspection

In this case, a cylindrical reconstruction is being done for small diameter pipe inspection using sizing with corner effect mode (TTT) for better defect sizing. Both TFM technique and sectorial […]


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 […]


High temperature hydrogen attack (HTHA)

HTHA damage is detected using AUBT method (Advanced Ultrasonic Backscattering Technique) that evaluates the frequency and velocity dependence to a non-damaged area This technique requires skillful operators to recognize backscatter […]


Nozzle-to-pipe inspection from the nozzle side

By Frederic Reverdy, M2M Product Sales Specialist at Eddyfi Technologies A while back we posted an article showing the application developed for Capture (GEKKO and MANTIS software) for the inspection of nozzle-to-pipe […]


Multi-group weld inspection using MANTIS

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 […]


Nozzle inspection

M2M has developed a unique nozzle inspection application that allows: – to define a nozzle geometry on board – to display in real-time a cross-section of the nozzle superimposed to sectorial or […]


Thick boiler tube inspection

 Thick boiler tube application (150 mm), sizing of small defects (1.5 mm).64-element aperture allows to focus the beam and see the tip diffraction.  


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 […]


Aircraft component inspection

Effect of the aperture on the SNR Let’s look at the detection of a fatigue crack (roughly a triangular shape 2-mm side) initiated at the borehole of a titanium beta […]
