urgent required one C-Scan UT System for purchasing.

U R G E N T

: Dear Friends,

: I am searching UT scanner suitable for c-scan testing of auto parts with common analog UT instrument and imaging software ?

: Thank you very much in advance.

: Regards.

One unit I have admired from afar is Krautkramer/Hocking's ANDSCAN unit. It would use your own UT instrument, which I think you want, plus it has quite a bit of flexibility as to contours of the surface.

Boeing (formerly McDonnell-Douglas) has a MAUS system which may be considered, but it sort of assumes that you will be using its pulser/receiver, though it could be overridden if you wanted to use your own equipment.

Each has eddy current and bondtesting capabilities also.

Your local Krautkramer dealer can tell you about ANDSCAN; Ms Nancy Wood would love to talk to you about the MAUS at (314)234-9028.

BTW, if anyone is thinking about a portable C-scan unit, but not in a rush, they may be interested in buying or borrowing a report written by Sandia National Labs, back in 1994, called "Evaluation of Scanners for C-Scan Imaging in NDI of Aircraft - SAND94-0945." Though not up-to-date, it does do side-by-side comparisons of several systems still available today. It's sort of a "Consumer's Report" of C-Scan equipment.

It is available commercially from:
NTIC
US Dept of Commerce
5285 Port Royal Rd
Springfield VA 22161

Unfortunately, I can't find the price for it, but it could be worth whatever the cost, not to have to check every system available.

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
