ULTRASONICS

What  Is Ultrasonics?
Ultrasonic inspection uses high frequency sound waves to detect imperfections or changes in properties within the materials. It can also be used to measure the thickness of a wide range of metallic and non-metallic materials where access from one side only is available.

Typical Applications

Thickness Determination of Materials
Inspection of Castings
Inspection of Forgings
Inspection of Welds
Inspection of Aerospace Materials
