|Two of the UKs leading NDT equipment manufacturing companies have teamed up to produce a superb corrosion mapping system that is stiring up enthusiasm across the globe. Technology Design and Silverwing UK manufacture equipment for the advanced ultrasonic market and have brought their respective skills together, the result of which is a marriage between the Rapid Motion Scanner (RMS) from Silverwing and the TD range of computerised ultrasonic acquisition systems.
The RMS is a large format XY scanner that is capable of scan speeds in excess of 700mm (27) per second translating into 2.5m2 (27ft2)/hour at a 2mm x 2mm resolution or 13 m2 (140ft2)//hour at 10mm x 10mm. This remarkable scanner with its powerful drive motors, strong magnetic wheels and ingenious probe actuator can traverse obstacles like weld caps that would pose an impenetrable barrier to most other scanners with ease.
The TD range of acquisition systems includes the TD Focus-Scan, TD Handy-scan, TD-Scan and TD Pocket-Scan. Using either pulse echo or phased arrays these systems control the acquisition and analysis of data through state-of-theart electronics and the well established TD-Scan software. Fast data throughput displayed in several amplitude and peak modes with offline re-gating, colour pallet & measurement tools are but some of the advanced analysis tools available.
The integration of the system was completed in October and the first sale was completed and delivered in the UAE by early November. Further sales have been made in the Far East with several enquiries from around the world. The synergy between the two companies ensures a quality product with excellent backup support that opens a new dimension in large area condition assessment.
