Eddyfi Technologies has invested tremendously in enhancing the software that drives both the Gekko® and Mantis™ portable phased array instruments over the years. With the new Capture™ software 4.0 release, it is now also compatible with the ultimate phased array imaging machine, Panther™. Combining the easy-to-use interface of Capture with the power of Panther, this software also introduces an assisted analysis module to help operators speed up the analysis of butt weld inspections. From advanced total focusing method to improved ergonomics and features requested by customers, we bring you even more innovative tools that help improve sensitivity and inspector productivity. This article takes a closer look at how Eddyfi Technologies has kept its promise to continuously improve its offering and keep you Beyond Current.

Now compatible with Panther, Capture acquisition software is the most powerful phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) and total focusing method (TFM) desktop system. Advanced yet user-friendly, the UT software offers both PAUT and TFM solutions at industrial scan speeds while respecting code compliance.

Designed for all levels of technicians, Capture has earned its reputation as the complete software platform designed for all UT, PAUT, time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD), TFM, and adaptive TFM procedures (ATFM). Combining the speed required for industrial integrated PAUT solutions, with the most complete set of TFM imaging techniques, Capture 4.0 makes the Panther the ultimate tool for R&D and procedure qualification.

No different from previous software updates, it continues to offer a balance between new tools and features requested by customers while improving ergonomics to increase productivity and probability of detection. Let’s take a closer look.


In Capture 3.1, a tool was introduced that allows automatic sizing of the defect based on a decibel drop method. The operator selects the decibel level -6 dB, -12 dB, etc., along the scan and index axis, circles the indication, and Capture automatically measures the dimensions of the defect along both directions. With Capture 4.0, the analysis goes a step further offering an assisted analysis module dedicated to butt weld inspection with PAUT. The aim of this feature is to increase analysis productivity by providing automatic detection, filtering and classifying indications based on standards before acceptance by the operator. The feature is available for butt weld, V and X bevels, and for inspections carried out on both sides of the weld...
