M2M Panther

PRODUCT LINE

 

The M2M PantherTM product range combines speed and performance of phased-array ultrasound technology in a compact format. Targeted towards integrators for inline inspections and laboratories for R&D,
Panther products offer a flexible and scalable solution for generic and custom NDT.

 

REAL-TIME TOTAL FOCUSING METHOD (TFM) FOR HIGH SPEED INSPECTION

Recognized amongst the highest-resolution PAUT techniques, TFM is natively implemented on Panther. Combined with unparalleled data throughput, Panther offers faster imaging of larger inspection zones for easier evaluation.

 

COMPACT, RUGGED & SCALABLE

From 32:128 to 2048:2048 configurations, Panther compact units are scalable for automated inspection. With up to 16 units used in parallel, Panther offers a substantial increase in inspection speed.
• Unlimited number of probes
• Unlimited number of groups
• Up 13k+ focal laws
Panther is IP54. Its casing has external fans for optimized heat dissipation with no air intake.

 

FASTEST DATA THROUGHPUT

Uniquely equipped with a 320MB/s high-speed link, Panther offers the fastest data throughput of the market.

FEATURES

 

ACQUIRE SOFTWARE

AcquireTM is M2M’s up-to-date acquisition software dedicated to advanced Phased-Array UT, TFM settings and imaging. AcquireTM software has been designed for both Industrial applications and laboratory demonstration. Acquire is able to drive and visualize PE, TOFD and Phased Array configuration as well as TFM modes (FMC, PWI, any custom transmission).

 

ADVANCED ANALYSIS

AAcquire’s inspection data files are fully compatible with both CIVA and Enlight Analysis software. EnlightTM add-on extends standards AcquireTM 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 PantherTM can also be post-processed by CIVA Analysis add-on.
