TecScan is proud to introduce a train axle inspection solution combining a manual axle scanner with phased array technology. The scanner performs a full 360° rotation of the phased array probe around the axle axis. Making use of the multi-angle capabilities of the phased array technology, the scanner produces simultaneous pulse-echo inspections at all refraction angles, all areas of interest within the axle are therefore covered by a single scan. The inspection results are easy to understand, they are presented either in the form of sectorial scans showing all refraction angles, as B-Scans at some specific refraction angles or as C-Scans corresponding to specific areas of the axle.

TecScan’s axle scanner is versatile and carefully designed for ease of operation on horizontal axles. It has lightweight and is equipped with low friction magnetic pads that help secure the scanner on the structure without interfering with the scan motion. In addition, it has ergonomic handles to allow easy and smooth 360? scanning motion. Adjustments of the probe positioning with regards to the axle center allow for versatility on multiple axle dimensions as well as ultrasonic signal optimization. Whether you are interested in the TecScan’s Axle scanner or the full phased array inspection solution, out team will be glad to help identify the right solution for your needs.
