Toyohashi University Develops New Ultrasonic Scanning Technology
Posted: 2018-10-3A research group led by Assistant Professor Yosuke Ishii at Toyohashi University of Technology has unraveled the phenomenon of a new "third ultrasonic wave" being generated when two ultrasonic waves intersect within a plate. This wave exhibits varying intensity in response to material damage and can therefore be used for nondestructively testing thin plate structures. This new technology surpasses conventional technology, enabling precise and nondestructive detection of fatigue and early damage.
Humans a...Read More.

Danatronics ECHO Software Introduces Auto Calibration
Posted: 2018-10-3Conventional ultrasonic thickness gages typically use a 2 point calibration process to calibrate to each material. The technique is well-known but does require many key presses and attention to the sequence in which data is entered. Danatronics has dramatically improved this process with our latest software feature. Now, with the advent of Auto Calibration, our ECHO series, when used as thickness gages, can automatically take control of the keypad to fully automate this process. This Patent Pending techniqu...Read More.
