Ultrasonic interference pattern recognition products

Hi,
I'm looking for manufacturers of systems for automatic recognition/control of objects. What we want to do is to check whether a screw is fully down or not. (Measurement of the distance between the top of the screw and the surface which it is screwed against, preferably with some kind of interference pattern recognition.)

Thanks in advance,

Martin Nyman

Re: Ultrasonic interference pattern recognition products
Without knowing everything about your application, I may be missing some important reason to use UT. However, for accurate and practical distance measurements, we have used these sensors:

and I am sure there are other vendors of similar products.

Re: Ultrasonic interference pattern recognition products
Thank you for your quick reply,

The reason for using ultrasonic equipment would mainly be the price, I don't know the exact cost of the systems you mentioned but the ones I have seen are fairly expensive (1000$ and upwards). We need a cheaper solution. Also, we only need a resolution of 0.3mm or better.

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

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
