Six Advantages of the MagnaFORM Probe Over Penetrant Testing in Stainless SteelUsing penetrant testing to inspect stainless steel pipes for stress corrosion cracking and welds for cracks can be a slow job. Many pipes are rough, dirty, or painted. Before penetrant testing can be used, the pipes must be smoothed and cleaned. If they’re painted, it must be painstakingly stripped off and the pipe later repainted. Luckily, there’s a better way.
Here are 6 advantages of the MagnaFORM™ eddy current array (ECA) probe over penetrant testing.
1. No more paint removal and repainting
The M...Read More.

SKF partners with Siemens to Improve Railway ReliabilityCondition monitoring and cloud-based data acquisition platforms are set to revolutionise the way railway operators address their asset management obligations.
Gothenburg, Sweden - SKF and Siemens have signed a partnership agreement that will focus on improving train operators’ asset management efficiencies. The partnership will see the implementation of SKF’s Insight Rail condition based maintenance solution in combination with Siemens' Railigent Application Suite that is linked with the Internet of Thin...Read More.
New Technologies in Inductive Displacement MeasurementsIn contrast to conventional inductive sensors, displacement sensors based on eddy currents stand out due to their high accuracy, bandwidth and temperature stability. Furthermore, this measuring principle enables measurements on ferro- or non-ferromagnetic objects. The sensors are also resistant to harsh industrial environments including dirt, oil, pressure and fluctuating temperatures.
The eddyNCDT 3060 is a new, powerful eddy current measurement system for fast, high precision displacement measurements....Read More.
Singapore LTA Grants S$18.8 Contract for Asset Management AnalyticsThe Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded an S$18.8 million contract to a Siemens Pte Ltd and ST Engineering Electronics Limited consortium to develop and implement a Rail Enterprise Asset Management System (REAMS).
Using Data Analytics for Smart Maintenance and Asset Renewal:
LTA currently tracks asset information using multiple systems on individual lines. REAMS will integrate asset information and maintenance records across the entire rail system, so that the health of the various operating as...Read More.
Live CT scans at the Museum for Nature BerlinBerlin / Hamburg: On Wednesday, October 4th, the wait was finally over: The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (MfN, Museum of Natural History Berlin) opened its doors to the Hall of Microscopes, where interested visitors now have a chance to experience live from 1 pm to 4 pm how objects of natural-historic collections are three-dimensionally captured and analyzed for research with the Yxlon computed tomography. In the course of this, they also have the opportunity to enter into dialogue with the scientists - a n...Read More.
Probes for Tube InspectionOlympus Scientific SolutionsProbes for tube inspection are lightweight but solidly constructed for eddy current, remote field, magnetic flux leakage, and IRIS ultrasound. These probes are used for ferromagnetic or non-ferromagnetic tube inspection applications.
Eddy Current Array Tube Probes
The new TXE probe series is optimized for detecting circumferential cracks, particularly those located at the edge of supports or tube sheets. The output display is an intuitive C-scan image, and the probe can be used to scan the whole length...Read More.
OmniScan® SX Ultrasonic Flaw DetectorOlympus IMSOlympus’ OmniScan SX flaw detector features a streamlined software interface displayed on an 8.4-in. (21.3 cm) touch screen. The OmniScan SX flaw detector comes in two models: the SX PA and SX UT. The SX PA is a 16:64PR phased array unit which, like the UT-only SX UT, is equipped with a conventional UT channel for pulse-echo, pitch-catch, or time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD) inspection. Compared to the OmniScan MX2 flaw detector, the SX model is 33% lighter and 50% smaller, offering excellent portability.
