This imaging system is a multi-axial scanning device comprised of the Goworld-originated CTS-04PC multi-channel UT acquiring board and UT transducers, together with high-precision slideway system imported originally from Mitsubishi in Japan. Approaches includes all-immersion longitudinal reflection, immersion corresponding penetration, which is capable of detecting planks, pipes, bars, plates or rings. Applicable materials include steel, Al- alloy, Ti-alloy, non-ferrous metal, composites, etc. It's available with A/B/C/F scanning modes and can detect tiny inner flaws, evaluate quality and homogeneity of the materials. This system can also be coupled with the Goworld-originated phased array instrument CTS-2108 to accomplish phased array C scan, which ensures higher detection level and accuracy.

  • Modular design, convenient for replacement of the components and care in later period, suitable for Lab environment.

    Platform frame is constructed by Al section bars of high intensity, which meets the requirements of platform work.

    X\Y\Z moving module guarantee complex and spatial scanning tracks done by the probe.

    A\B axial probe sharp-tuning module is developed for sharp-tuning of the acoustic axis, eliminating probe-made errors, keeping the acoustic axis perpendicular to the workpiece. Water sink can be customized according to required parameters (size, fixing manner, multi-channel purposed probe-holder, etc.)

  • High-precision TOYO rectilinear-motion component and Mitsubishi AC servo motor for security of precision.

    TOYO rectilinear-motion component is made of ball screw and precision linear slideways. It operates stably with return trip error of near-zero gap. Coupled with the AC servo motor system with the precision of 17-bit code, it demonstrates NCP-level kinetic characteristics; past-coming position limit switch is configured for the safety of the system.

  • Manual/Auto control manner, convenient for adjustment. Auto-inspection mode is programmable, and scanning route is designable. Interface for common software is available, and software is customizable.

    Simple setting is enough to attaining precision track control.
    Manual panel is convenient for debugging. It's available for individual adjustment on each axis with tunable speed and instant-stop button for safety.

  • Varied modular combos can support different motions of X\Y\Z orientation and probe rotation axes.

    Adlink 8-axis motion controlling board, executing hardware line and circula interpolation, attaining accurate trajectory control.

    CTS-04PC is multi-channel USFD board based on PCI Bus. Each board is designed with 4 channels. Through multi-board extension, these boards can be assembled with IPC into multi-channel USFD system of 4, 8, 12 or even 16 CHs. 20KHz PRF, square wave drive with 400V voltage, tunable programcontrol and hardware DAC compensation. Board-to-board pulsing sequence can be sync-controlled or discretionarily arranged. Pulsing interval is user-defined and A-scan wave of the flaws can be saved real-timely.

Top right and bottom left respectively indicates B-scan images of where the V-hand and H-hand of the cursor points. The depths of the characters on test block can be viewed. Set the range to corresponding depth (between two white lines) then the C-scan counterpart is created.
