Pipe testing during production

Together with Uni Leipzig (prof. Grill) and a small german company we are trying to start a research&development project with the goal to develop device for contactless testing of pipes (or other similiar products) during production.
The device should be suitable for production control (measurement of thickness, material properties and flaws) of plastic and probably also glass pipes immediately after the pipe was formed.

This project is based on the ideas and the experience collected by Optel, Prof. Grill and uses a novel idea, that should allow to measure relatively hot pipes. The first stadium of the project will cause costs of about 300 thousand Euro and will allow to build a prototype of the device.
The ready-made device shouldn't be very expensive - the price can be comparable to the today devices using water coupled ultrasound.

We are searching industrial partners interested in financing such project and marketing of this device.

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.
