UT of AL rod

we want inspect a lot of Al rod(solid bar) with UT inspection to detect internal defect in it. the OD of rod is 30mm and 3m length.what's your suggestion?contact or immersion?manual or auto?why and what?

Hello Mohsen,
'a lot' is not a quantifiable amount. 20 bars might be a lot also 10,000 could be a lot, 1,000,000 is definitely a lot.

if it is going to be an on-going inspection then an automated UT immersion system would be the most cost effective option.

The best way is to determine if a manual or automated inspection is best (meaning most cost effective) is to test a small number manually and work out the inspection cost per length. Then obtain the price for an automated system and divide the cost of the automated system into the number of bars that you wish to test. compare your results.

Robotic laser shearography enables 100% inspection of complex, flight-critical composite structures

An article in “Composites World Magazine” showcases Non Destructive Testing of aero-structures
with Laser Shearography. Over the years Dantec Dynamics has supplied many solutions for the aerospace industry. Referring to specific customer projects several of these cases are examined to outline the advantages of using Laser Shearography for automated defect detection.

Varex Imaging Large Field of View (FOV) Digital Detector Arrays (DDAs)

A larger FOV DDA can reduce the space and volume of the X-ray inspection system on the factory floor
, enable faster scanning times, better throughput and better resolution images at a lower dose. Customers can also save time and money. With these benefits in mind, Varex Imaging has designed a family of large FOV detectors (4343HE, XRD 1611, 4343DX-I, 4343CT) for our industrial imaging customers.
