Simply, the best equipment depends on what you want to do with it. If you want to do in-service inspections in difficult places, you will need a portable unit. If you want to inspect ERW in pipe mills, go for a rack-monted unit. If you have a major job in a nuclear reactor, you want a powerful unit etc.

In terms of equipment, the real deciding factor is probably the software, not the hardware. Make sure that the software can do what you want, fulfills codes etc.

Naturally, we will tell you that Olympus NDT makes the best equipment since we are the market leader. If you want to check out our product range, go to www.olympusndt.com and look at accessories, training etc.

Re: Phased arrey
Hello...

i agree basicly what Michael explain...but i have personally problems to understand if there is a need for olympus to pronouce " We are the best ! "

Look, if you starts with phased array please have in mind that on the medical sector they have a lot of experiance with these kind of equipment.

Everything what we have in our ( little ) NDT world worked since years on the medical sector...you need examples : CT , digital radiogphy, phased array and ..

All these new methods or test techniques coming bow on the market are surely not a " new " discovered by companies as GE or Olympus.

If you are looking for really innovative phased array technique take a close look to the medical market and or also looking in countries as Korea,Taiwan,US or Netherland.

There a a lot of sources coming up or getting bigger; - so invest some time in google and you will find a lot of manufacturer !

There are plenty of products in the market today. NDT Solutions, UK - (some typical applications), Harfung , m2m France are few leaders alongwith RDTech (Olympus now).

Depends on your application, you need to choose the system.

There are loads of manufacturers, as Simon Amallraja points out: Olympus, TDL, GEIT, Sonatest, PEAK, DSL, M2M, Siemens, Toshiba, Zetec, KBJ etc. What is best is typically what is best for your application. ONDT is not the only manufacturer; just the biggest - which probably says something.
As for the medical world, they started their business baed on phased array radar and other applications. Unfortunately, the medical PA is not as useful as we would like: they spend all their time using longitudinal waves and looking for a few dB of contrast on a known product. We use all kinds of waves on a spectrum of materials and components, looking for a variety of defects. With the except of GE (who are not the cutting edge in industrial PA), none of the medical players are active in NDE.

Re: Phased arrey
Can I just add one hundred percent agreement with Michaels comments. I didn't interpret his comments as saying Olympus 'is the best' - For different applications different products are superior, for example I like to think that ours (Sonatest/Harfang) has a lot to offer in the 'high end portable' category, but Olympus's overall market leadership is indisputable.

The other point that needs to be made is local support expertise - The fact that the original inquirer asks 'which is the best' implies that they need information and guidance. So, if local support is important, find out who will provide it and decide how much confidence you have in them. This is often at least as important as the equipment you choose.
