M2M introduces Gekko

M2M39, Les Ulis [France]
NDT.net Journal
Issue: 2013-11

M2M introduces Gekko, phased-array ultrasound portable equipment. It combines standard and cutting-edge techniques. Gekko is the first system able to drive matrix arrays and perform real-time custom Total Focusing Methods (TFM). With a simple interface, the equipment delivers high-quality results.

Gekko features


Gekko is the only equipment allowing to run classic conventional, TOFD and phased array approach as well as advanced function such as hyperfocalisation and 3D visualization. Gekko also handles most UT inspection techniques, and benefits from the latest CIVA features natively implemented.
  • CIVA-fueled software
  • matrix arrays
  • real-time Total Focusing Method (TFM)
  • 3D imaging
  • flexible arrays

Gekko software has been developed for all-level operators. The step-by-step interface simplifies the menus and reduces the risk for errors.
  • all-level operators
  • application & calibration wizards
  • automatic probe detection
  • reporting tools

Touch-screen, IP54 and battery operated, Gekko is designed for field use.
  • touch screen
  • dust & water resistant
  • portable
  • battery operated
  • hot swap

Gekko offers the most advanced UT tools to customize your application. Use it as expert or operator, or through a third-party software.
  • custom UT made simple
  • expert & operator modes
  • 64-channel parallel
  • Pulse-echo
  • Pitch-catch
  • TOFD
  • DDF

*Gekko has been developed in collaboration with CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission).
