the confusion on Omniscan SX
zoom image



hello! recently, i found there was a R view when I analysis the PAUT data, just as the image I uploaded. but sometimes, I found the indication shown on the R view was not correct, the reflector was not on the position as shown on R view. so it made me confused. could any one know the reason? was it because this is just a welding model and the cap was not taken into consideration?
thanks

thanks! here you are right. but how do we know whether the indication is caused by waveform transformation or not? we don't know when it will produce a waveform transformation.

Hi
I think the axial index parameter is not set correctly.
If you put the correct axial index on the piece, you will see the indications will transfer to weld profile (on S scan view). Also you are getting the root and Cap indications in this picture.

thanks! the offset parameter was set correctly. and we can verify it according the root LOP, the most red indication on the image.
I can send the original data to you, pls leave your email.

Hi,
You must verify the index offset and the location of the front of the shoe with respect to the center line of the weld, and you must verify the location of the bezel on the screen, some mxu programs let it move and sometimes without intension it is moved.

Is the scan doing it semi-automatically with encoder or with scanner?

thanks. the offset index is right. when I set up the focal law, I took notes the offset index. before I start scanning, a pencil was used to draw a line on the component and the distance between the welding axis and this line is the offset index. my probe shoe was moved along this line. So I can make sure the offset is right.

the other indications that are seen along the scan axis for that same scan angle in the C-scan are seen in the same position. Or is it only that which is located 100 mm in the scan axis that is misplaced?

hello! they haven't been misplaced. most of the indications alone the scan axis on the C scan map appeared the same position. though, I have known they are caused by welding cap, but on the other situation, I can't make sure whether they are caused by cap. Is there any experience I can follow? thanks

I would ask to see if they can ground flush the weld cap or at least a small area.

thanks. maybe we can ground the cap, but mostly, we evaluate the data in office or welder can't agree with ground the cap.

hi,

based on the shared image, the indication does not correspond to a geometric echo of the crown or reinforcement of the weld.

I can't say for 100% certainty, but it does look an awful lot like a stray mode converted echo. Here is a similar one from an old scan of mine. I know this is not a real weld flaw because this was done on a purchased UT test specimen.

Notice the beam goes right through the root area... that's the hint right there. If you have a beam that goes through the root area, then you can only consider reflections "at the root" to be relevant, because there is no reflection possible to see anything in the 2nd leg.
