INSPECTION SPEED


3"X3" FOV Acoustography NDE vs. Standard point by-point UT Scanning


12"x 12" Test Area

NOTE



3"x3" FOV Acoustography NDE is nearly 4X FASTER than Standard UT Scanning.



Inspection Speeds are dramatically   FASTER (10x or more) when larger FOV Acoustography NDE (e.g. 6"x6" or 12"x12") is employed and/or faster Image shot time (e.g. 5s or 1s) are employed.
