Spot weld testing ????
Can someone advise me the best way to test spot welds?
Right now I am looking into Ultra sonic testing? I am looking for something that is user friendly, and easy to read, and can create a data base.

Re: Spot weld testing ???? You might want to consider reistivity, numerous car manufacturers use this as it can be quick and simple plus has outputs for SPC.
Talk to Physical Acoustics New Jersey about their M100 Unit.

Re: Spot weld testing ???? John:
Ultrasound test gives you EASY of use, easy of finding defects and portability. IT is the best method to do this inspection. If you need more information, please, let me know. Car manufacturers has been using it for years with excelent results.

how to find out defects i am very happy,
your web site more helped me,
i more learn form your web site.
i know ultrasonic testing how to find out defects, how to tell this is porosity, or some one of the defects,
please inform me i want images
plase send me my e- mail

High-performance Linear Phased Array Probes
Available to order from stock in a range of 5MHz – 7.5MHz and from
16 to 64 elements. Designed w
ith piezo-composite elements, Phoenix
phased array probes provide high-resolution imaging to maximise
sensitivity; accurate ultrasonic detection and sizing of defects
in welds; and effective corrosion mapping. Housed in a rugged
stainless steel case for on-site industrial NDT applications.
The FlexoFORM™ solution integrates flexible phased array probe
a scanner to solv
e the challenges that come with inspecting pipe
When combined with a water column, this solution can be used to
easy-to-interpret data on elbows with diameters ranging from 4.5
in. OD up
to flat and offers many benefits.
Exertus Dual 120
The Exertus Dual 120 Projector has the ability to accept Iridium 192
sources or Selenium 75 source
s. This projector incorporates design
safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight.
The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It
incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal
design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also
allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device,
making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The
Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive
The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source
holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always
assuring the operator that the source has returned to the
safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.
Lyft™: Pulsed Eddy Current Reinvented
PEC Reinvented—CUI Programs Redefined
Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest u
asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for
measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation,
all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented,
high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent-
pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real-
time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and
dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also
scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum,
stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but
Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI
programs. Got Lyft?
