Because the reliability of low-cost conventional manual ultrasonic testing is limited by human factors, it couldn't compete with radiographic inspection in spite of the higher attainable flaw sensitivity. ISONIC - a new portable mechanics free PC assisted multitechnology ultrasonic inspection system is, for the first time, closing a gap allowing to perform ultrasonic testing with high reliability and objective data presentation.
