INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS IN NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING

Scanner immer sonic

Description of the product

ImmerSonic is a high quality ultrasonic system intended for immersion ultrasonic testing, which is non-destructive. the device can be used to inspect construction elements and material structures, such as metal alloys or composites.


The ImmerSonic consists of an automated scanning arm capable of moving in three axes, a stationary computer equipped with a data acquisition module and an aluminium-framed container that enables immersion of the tested items in a liquid in order to ensure the right coupling.


The ImageScan dedicated software enables detailed analysis of the data collected during the inspection along with the option of exporting and reporting. The software has a work mode intended for testing porous and composite structures.


The basic version of the device is equipped with a 3-axis scanning arm; however, on customer’s request, the scanner can be delivered with two extra axes enabling rotation of the measuring head around a selected axis.

The application has the functionality of a classical ultrasonic flaw detector. The main window displays the A-scan in real time and in the tabs below the following settings can be adjusted, among other:
− amplification
− scope of observation
− frequency of the generated waveform
− analogue filter band
− measurement gate intervals

Precise measurements of casting thickness

The system automatically takes measurements of the thickness of aircraft turbine engine blades with an accuracy of up to 25 μm. The application of the industrial robot made it possible to reduce the duration of the testing and to implement the system in the production line.
