Why the Pandemic May Help the Transition to Digital Radiography
Posted: 2021-4-1The global coronavirus pandemic hit many industries hard and one of the worst affected has been aerospace. The sudden decrease in air travel impacted revenue from new aircraft sales and replacement parts. The pandemic has also forced many aerospace companies to focus on cost savings that include workforce reductions. These reductions are being coupled with automation improvements to make scaling up activity easier when business rebounds.
If your company must reduce costs or headcount due to the pan...Read More.

Making the Most of the Total Focusing Method
Posted: 2021-4-1The total focusing method (TFM) is suitable for ultrasonic inspection of components across a range of different industries. When using the TFM however, the quality of results depends greatly on the setup used. Selecting the most suitable scan plan increases probability of detection, and the use of intelligent modelling tools during setup both saves time and increases chances of success.
In nondestructive testing, the TFM is a way to improve the detection capabilities of linear pulse-echo probes. It...Read More.
DC Series Transducers Provide a Complete Corrosion Monitoring Toolbox
Posted: 2021-3-30Olympus’ new DC series (DC1–DC5) dual element transducers provide inspectors with a complete corrosion monitoring toolbox for pipeline and tank integrity. Optimized for corrosion and thin materials, the transducers work with the NDT instruments and ultrasonic inspection procedures used in the oil & gas, energy and mining industries.
Depending on the application, any one or a combination of these five transducers offers improved corrosion monitoring and defect sizing. As field inspections change, inspec...Read More.
