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.
