The Ultrasonic Inspection is a valuable method for performing volumetric inspections of structures and components, regardless of their shape and complexity. The use of high-frequency sound waves makes it possible to:
Ultrasonic Control allows volumetric testing of all materials as long as the attenuation is sufficiently low. It is particularly useful for highlighting cracks in welds and checking the efficiency of joints.
Its applications are many and include finding defects in components such as tubes, plates, axles, gears, cast parts, aircraft and automotive components, and many more:
Acoustic impedance changes generated by surface and/or internal defects such as : cracks, inclusions, etc.
Rapid deployment-ability to inspect large thicknesses-high sensitivity.
Need for transducer/piece acoustic coupling – inability to inspect high attenuation materials
