|In the year of its 60th anniversary the KARL DEUTSCH company also exhibited at the international welding show "SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN" in Essen (Germany). Compared to the "Control" fair in spring, the employees at the KARL DEUTSCH stand were satisfied about the strong demand and many visitors at the exhibition booth. As usual, most of the quality assurance suppliers exhibited in the same exhibition hall of the QTI fair (Quality Testing International) which is part of the bigger fair. For visitors this circumstance allowed a quick overview and orientation within the non-destructive testing sector.
The new compact multi-channel ultrasonic testing electronic ECHOGRAPH 1093 was shown in combination with a small immersion tank. Several test channels were enabled at the same time while the respective probes detected various flaws in a round steel bar sample. A test with rotating sample and linear probe movement was carried out. In this way the high testing speed (up to a sequence of 2 kHz per channel) was impressively demonstrated. For two years, this test electronic is used in several types of industrial sectors. Welded transmission gear wheels, forged gear shafts and high-pressure pipes for the chemical industry were among the tested components.
In May 1949, the KARL DEUTSCH company was established by Ing. Karl Deutsch. Today, the family-owed company is managed by the third family generation. All products are developed und manufactured by 140 highly motivated employees in Wuppertal (Germany). The products for non-destructive material testing are designed for ultrasonic testing, magnetic particle testing and penetrant testing. The product range varies from mobile devices up to large testing machines. The export rate is about 60%. The Asian market has a significant share of sales.
