THE ULTIMATE PAUT/TFM IMAGING MACHINE
M2M PANTHER is a phased-array equipment designed for both desktop and industrial applications, offering unparalleled performance in a compact unit. It combines the speed required for industrial integrated Phased-Array Ultrasound (PAUT) solutions, with the most complete set of total focusing method (TFM) imaging techniques, making it the ultimate tool for R&D and procedure qualification. Combined with its operating software ACQUIRE, PANTHER is today the fastest and most versatile PAUT/TFM offering of the market.
ANSWERING TO HIGHEST EXPECTATIONS
To reduce cycle time and increase production capabilities, M2M PANTHER has been designed with tremendous processing power and the highest data transfer rate (320MByte/s) of the market between the instrumentation and the monitoring computer.
WHAT YOU SEE, IS WHAT IT IS
Recognized amongst the highest-resolution ultrasound techniques, Total Focusing Method (TFM) is natively implemented on M2M PANTHER. With TFM pictures of 1.5+ million pixels in real-time, TFM offers efficient high-definition imaging for better flaw detection and easier defect characterization.
COMPACT, RUGGED & SCALABLE
M2M PANTHER is compact (300x220x155mm), IP54 and takes advantage of its parallel and stackable architecture (up to 16 units of 128 channels) to meet the speed and resolution requirements of the most demanding applications.

ADVANCED PHASED-ARRAY MODES
ACQUIRE is M2M’s up-to-date acquisition software dedicated to advanced PAUT, TFM settings and imaging. M2M ACQUIRE software has been designed for both Industrial applications and laboratory demonstration.
M2M ACQUIRE features:
• 3D CAD configuration and rendering
• LINEAR, MATRIX, DLA, DMA, DAISY, ANNULAR, SECTORIAL probes
• PE, TOFD, PAUT, through transmission, FMC, PWI, TFM Imaging techniques
• Adaptive TFM modes
• 3D real-time imaging
• Unlimited number of probes
• Unlimited number of groups
M2M ACQUIRE’s inspection data files are fully compatible with both M2M ENLIGHT, CIVA and ULTIS Analysis software.
M2M ENLIGHT add-on extends standards ACQUIRE views (A-B-S-D-C-Scan + Top, Side, Front views cumulated, TFM & 3D views) to 3D merging of data, automatic analysis, and advanced reporting.
In addition to real time TFM imaging, full waveform FMC data acquired by M2M PANTHER can also be post-processed by CIVA Analysis add-on.
SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT (SDK)
In addition to the M2M ACQUIRE acquisition software, M2M offers a Software Development Kit (SDK) to customize application-based software interface for a fully automated inspection solution:
• Full control in real-time of the ACQUIRE Software (Remote server) : Gain, TCG, gates, alarms, coders, etc.
• Real-time data retrieval (Data server)
• Software language independent
• Very limited hardware knowledge: same program for all M2M hardware’s architectures
