New Product Launch - Acoustocam™ i700Imperium Inc18, Beltsville, MD, USA
Best Mapping System Out There, Even Better Than Phased Array.
Now With Angle Beam Adjustability That Enables Shear Wave Operation.
Like Acoustocam™ i600, Acoustocam™ i700 will offer the same unparalleled quality of large area C-scan imaging and A-scan for rapid coverage for subsurface defects, but with the following improvements:
30% smaller and lighter with a much lower profile. For example, the product height goes from 7” high to 3” high. Shear wave! Now the system can easily be adjusted from zero degree straight beam operation to 70 degree shear. No special setup, accessories or software is required to easily switch between straight beam and any shear angle. Additional ruggedness. The i700 was designed for the most challenging industrial settings. Adaptable trolley built-in to scan around a variety of pipes and other curved targets.
The improvements in the i700 are based on customer feedback to our existing product line. Because of the added shear wave functionality and smaller footprint, the application set for the unit is expanded. For example, the same system can switch between corrosion to weld inspection immediately.
The Acoustocam™ product set continues to have these great advantages in industry:
+ Higher Probability of Detection (POD) and better accuracy than other UT devices
+ Higher resolution than phased array or single point scanning
+ Very simple and fast
+ Provides all necessary thickness and A-scan data
+ Fully complies with ASTM E317 for design of ultrasonic testing devices
+ Addresses lack of specialized NDT personnel
+ Minimal training
“At Imperium, we value our customer’s input, and our redesigned camera is based on feedback from several industries,” said Bob Lasser, Imperium CEO. “We’re especially proud of the new shear-mode operation. This feature allows opens up the door to a whole new set of inspections in a variety of industries. For example, users can now detect cracks during weld inspections and identify cracks around lap joints and under fasteners in the aerospace industry with the same system that does corrosion and composite inspection.”
