Is there a need for a miniature IIW block?

Do users of this forum feel there is a need for a miniature version of the common IIW Reference Block? The size and weight of full-size version makes it difficult to transport. Many people use the Mini-Angle Beam (aka Rompas) block or even the DSC block for field work. Are these blocks sufficient or would a small version of the IIW design be better? Something in the range of 1" thick x 2" high x 6" long perhaps. If one were coming up with a new design for this block, what features would the industry like to see included?

Thanks for any feedback.

Re: Is there a need for a miniature IIW block?
Hi Phil Herman Jr.,

The miniature blocks such as V2, DSC blocks are sufficient for field work provided all parameters are checked prior to the commencement of work using IIW block. I too feel if IIW is miniturized it will be very useful. It can have 20mm x 50mm x 150mm size, 50mm radidus of curvature and may incorporate resolution holes for angle probes.

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
