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.
