Ultrasonic inspection uses the transmission of high frequency sound waves into a material to detect imperfections within the material or changes in material properties. Ultrasonic inspection is utilized to perform volumetric inspections on raw materials, as well as in process components and finished materials. Ultrasound can be used on a variety of materials from exotic metals to composite structures.
Defects that can be found with ultrasonic inspection include:
Our technicians certified in ultrasound are able to perform both contact and phased array inspections. Our lab is also outfitted with multiple automated 6-axis immersion ultrasonic systems.
