It is possible, to make ultrasonic measurements on line (see: Krautkrämer), but this simple method
doesn´t seem to be very reliable.

It is possible to use for this purpose our holographic method,that we have developed for
fingerprint recognition (see: http://www.optel.com.pl/article/english/article.htm ).
We are interested in developing this method for this purpose, but we need a partner, interesting in financing and/or
using this development.

Using such holographic device, it would be possible to see in real time the contact surface and
the material changes in the neighbourhood.

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
