Manual Two-Axis Scanner
A 2-axis scanner for manual ultrasonic inspections. One scanning axis is flexible and conforms to the contour of the part being inspected. Vacuum cups make the Wing Scanner well suited for nonferromagnetic surface inspections.
The WING™ Scanner is a two-axis scanner for manual ultrasonic inspections. One scanning axis is flexible and conforms to the contour of the part being inspected. Vacuum cups make the WING Scanner well-suited for nonferromagnetic surface inspections.
Typical applications include the inspection of friction stir welding (FSW) and the inspection to detect delamination, cracks, and corrosion on plates and airplane fuselage.
- Two integrated encoders for X and Y axes
- 5 m encoder cable compatible with TomoScan FOCUS LT™, and OmniScan® using supplied adaptor
- Adjustable probe holder
- 1 PA 40 mm × 55 mm yoke
- 1 TOFD-P/E 31.75 mm yoke
- Irrigation tubing and fitting
- Transport case
- Couplant-Feed Units
- Two encoded axes for X-Y scans
- Axis positioning with minimal backlash
- Vacuum cups mounted on the flexible axis ease installation on both concave and convex nonferromagnetic surfaces.
- Scanner can be used vertically or upsidedown using Venturi vacuum cups (WING Scanner "V" models only).
NOTE: The scanner must always be secured with a lanyard when used on vertical or upsidedown surfaces.
- Suitable for phased array and conventional UT inspection techniques using one probe
- Can operate with an OmniScan® or TomoScan FOCUS LT™ acquisition unit.
- Also available in a manually activated vacuum-cup version that eliminates the need for air supply (WING Scanner H1 model)
- Very flexible contour-following track
- Encoder module follows the flexible track (resolution: 39.7 steps/mm).
- Locking lever on the encoder module
- Integrated loop on one end to secure the scanner against accidental falls.
- 16 mm diameter hard-anodized aluminum shaft with stainless steel toothed rack
- Shaft is mounted on a pivot, allowing constant contact between the probe and the part.
- Shaft does not move under its own weight when the indexing dial is engaged.
- Fully adjustable and tool-free, probe-alignment device
- Indexing increments: 0.5 mm and 1 mm
- Axis-locking thumb screw
