|ESBeamTool2 is Eclipse Scientifics second generation technique development tool for Phased Array, TOFD and
Conventional ultrasonic inspection.|
The ability to quickly define typical inspection parameters enables technique
development to be rapidly realized and clearly presented in a consistent format.
Comprehensive reports containing the broad list of inspection parameters are
easily incorporated into the final technique documentation.

Visual Pick Lists
Select from predefined weld configurations or produce your own specific weld
geometry quickly and easily. Call up transducer or wedge definitions from an
extensive list or include your own unique designs. ESBeamTool2 allows you to
save the workspace and the user defined weld parameters.
Graphical display auto scales and transparency features allow real time
observation of parameter changes. ESBeamTool2 allows you to add probes
and turn the beam visibility on and off. Dimensions and labels to help convey
the inspection sequence are all easily achieved by simply selecting the
ESBeamTool2 was designed to meet the modern operators need for speed.
Phased array technique development is more complex than that for
conventional ultrasonic inspection and as such requires effective tools to help
define the inspection approach.
ESBeamTool2s innovative approach to phased array enables linear, sectorial
and an informative reference cursor option to be represented, helping to clearly
convey weld coverage, HAZ coverage and probe position, in addition to critical
ESBeamTool2 is fast, easy to use and an effective tool for phased array
Conventional probes can now be modeled in ESBeamTool2 with advanced
support for beam spread and near field rendering.
New time-of-flight diffraction support provides tools to visualize and confirm
zonal coverage. TOFD techniques can be automatically annotated with crossover
dimensions and dead-zone depiction. Effortlessly define probe separation
(PCS) by selecting the cross-over depth you want and ESBeamTool2
automatically positions the probes to target your requirements.
Multi-discipline Technique Development
Design techniques using multiple probes from multiple disciplines within a
single workspace. Combine Conventional UT and TOFD probe configurations
to ensure complete coverage.
Modern User Interface
ESBeamTool2's modern user interface makes it easy to be productive
immediately after installation without having to spend a lot of time learning how
to use it. Super tooltips ensure that an explanation of each tools function is
readily available without having to consult the online help. Visual pick lists
provide you with a preview of what a command does before the command is
executed. Functionality is easily discoverable.
Redline allocation lets you annotate your technique using a comprehensive
suite of drawing tools. You can add text and symbols to draw attention to items
of interest in your technique and clearly communicate specifics such as scan
directions, probe harnesses, etc...
Piece configuration has been completely redesigned for ESBeamTool2. Pick
from a list of standard weld configurations or use the new weld editor to create
virtually any weld profile, no matter how complex. New weld cap geometries
allow you to clearly illustrate how close you can get your probe to a weld while
ensuring proper coverage.
Using the redline drawing system, you can draw defects onto a piece, then use
two dimensional ray-tracing to visualize beam reflections on simulated defects.
This is an excellent visualization tool for communicating technique objectives.
HTML standards based reporting allows reports to be generated and shared
across the web or email. Report content can be copied into other programs,
like Microsoft Word, and edited for final presentation.
Advanced users can create and save custom report templates using standard
HTML editors, like Microsoft FrontPage.
Technique plans can now be viewed from the side and the top to help
communicate probe placement in all planes.
This versatile tool simplifies the technique design, validation and reporting
process and is adaptable for use by engineers, technicians, and auditors. If
you are dealing with ultrasonic inspections and require the ability to visualize
and document the applications, ESBeamTool2 will guide you through the
process and produce the professional results industry experts demand.
