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.

SITEX CPSERIES

Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
...
mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
