Air-coupled systems

Dear colleague

in your opinion what is the best (most performing/most flexible) ultrasonic air-coupled system to test very heterogeneous composite matrials (polymeric matrix glass fiber reinforced)??

Obviously I would recommend the QMI equipment (see papers on this site by myself and others)

we have supplied many systems for a variety of applications, But we would need a lot more information to give detailed advise - generally the scanning systems are more of an issue than the instrumentation. If you contact me directly i would be happy to advise on your application in more detail,
best regards
Joe

We at Airstar have been in the Ultrasonic air-coupled field for decades. We have worked on countless applications over the years, and always enjoy the challenge of testing difficult non-homogeneous materials. It would be our pleasure to help you with any ultrasonic inquiries that you might have. For more information on our company please refer to www.airstar1.com
