Phoenix Inspection Systems has improved its TOFD and phased array probe holding toolpost for use in its existing range of scanners.

The latest version of the toolpost - a fundamental component on the MagMan, MultiMag, Swipe and several bespoke scanners – retains the key features of its predecessor, such as the constant force loading, ball-slide carriage and dual axis gimballing.

However probes and wedges can now be changed without tools, by using thumbscrews on the side plates to release the probe. The thumbscrews are captive so that they are not misplaced, as is the attaching bolt that fixes the toolpost to the scanner frame to enable quick repositioning of the probe. It is now also possible to change the direction the toolpost faces, removing the need for a left-handed or right-handed version.

Neil Hankinson, Head of Applied Engineering at Phoenix, said: “We constantly review our products to ensure we are offering customers the best design and value. An important design aspect for Phoenix is modularity so that a small number of parts can be puttogether in multiple ways to meet the needs of a broad range of applications.”
