MFL (Magnetic Flux Leakage) is it an ET, MT or a method alone? - Michael Trinidad 14:48 10/03/2000
I opened this new topic since Michael's good question led to a more general discussion. From the discussion I recognize that there are a different demands on how to categorize NDT methods. Its depends if you see it form the certification body, literature or exhibition/buyers guide point of view. It could be a challenge for NDT societies or the ICNDT to develop a categorized index of terms for use in information retrieval (so called thesaurus).
This may take a long time until such a standard can be ready. Then we'll have to face the problem how to deal with the history, that means to change already build catalogs in prints and on homepages. It is my old vision that this job can do one NDT Database on the Internet (search from one box). We started already to create and host the electronic addition of conference proceedings or other publications on our Internet Database, e.g. ECNDT'98 Proceedings etc. and now the WCNDT'00. Internet users can search through one connectivity NDT Database which can be obviously be more effective than browsing through different e-catalogs or search engines.
I hope that we'll get support for this development in discussions with Societies and ICNDT in Rome.
The Cygnus 6+ PRO thickness gauge is the most advance gauge within
the Cygnus range with key featu
res including: comprehensive data
logging; A-scan and B-scan display; manual gain control; Bluetooth
connectivity; and much more. With its unique dual display and three
measuring modes (Multiple-Echo, Echo-Echo and Single-Echo), this
surface thickness gauge offers maximum versatility for inspections.
Phased array ultrasound is now a commonly accepted inspection technology. Now there is excitement ar
ound new techniques in Phased Array: Full Matrix Capture (FMC) & Total Focusing Method (TFM). Our webinar on December 5 & 6 will illustrate how these techniques, implemented on a TOPAZ64 instrument, can improve the results of existing inspections. Register today.
Latest standard & automatic real time
system developed by Balteau. The
AIS229 has been designed to
inspection in a wide variety of industry.
Composed of a shielded cabinet, 5
axis manipulator, x-ray generator and
tubehead from 160kV to 225kV, a fl at
panel & much more, the AIS229 is most
certainly one of the most multipurpose
RTR system available on the market.
