AMPET NDE

I am part of an NDE Team at Marshall Space Flight Center/NASA in Alabama. With the privatization of the shuttle our center has become focused primarily on the second generation of shuttle type vehicles. Our team has been primarily interested in advanced NDE for inspecting metallic and composite cryo tanks, specifically verification of joining processes including Friction Stir welds, brazing and composite bonding. Our research arms at NASA in NDE include Langley, Ames, Glenn, among others, who help bring these technologies to reality. Here at MSFC we try to implement these new NDE technologies into the vehicle processes. I was asked by our Material folks here, to see if there was some interest in having an NDE session as part of their Materials conference here in beautiful, Huntsville, Alabama. If any of our forum readers out there are interested please look at the website at

Product Spotlight

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
