Our SonoFlexTM array units can be dry-coupled to either flat or contoured objects for rapid inspection. Images are produced by electronically scanning the array. Image formats include: 1) C-Scans (plan views) of either amplitude or thickness, and 2) B-Scans (elevation views). Potential applications include:
- Composites Inspection:
- Matrix cracking
- General impact damage
- Ply count and sheet thickness
- Detection of thickness, bond quality and corrosion in metals
- Erosion-corrosion imaging in piping
The arrays shown in our web page banner (above) are expanded below for greater clarity. Also shown are a typical B-Scan and C-Scan. Field Applications and System Details sections follow.
