depth location tolerance

when i calibrate for weld scan usually i have been calibrating velocity, wedge delay and sensitivity . after that i create the TCG. everything goes normally but when i check the depth of well known side drilled hole it shows lesser than actual. but there is not big difference. when i check 25mm depth hole it shows 22 mm. is it acceptable? if not how i can manage that? please anyone do help me. thanks.

should be within +/- 1 mm

I think if your wedge delay calibration is ok,then depth should show correctly.
when checking the depth by taking an indication from a reflector you should position your angle cursor in S scan at the centre of the indication and thickness of the block should be given.

Noufel points out a good concern with the wedge delay. In addition to that I might mention that the reading you get on the display is based on the maximum amplitude position. This will be at the outer edge of the Side Drilled Hole and you usually state the depth of the hole based on its centre. As a result, the signal from the outer surface will be less than the nominal depth which is based on the centre.
Another factor is the beam dimension. If the hole is in the near field you may find that the maximum pressure is at back of the beam and not on the beam nominal centreline. This too may cause a slightly lower reading than the nominal hole depth.

You must have set your tolerance as +/- 3 mm when making the wedge delay. Set to +/- 2 mm and redo wedge delay
