Spot Weld Transducers

Ultrasonic transducers with a flexible acoustic interface for inspection of resistance welded spot welds on automotive bodies.

MIG/MAG Transducers

Ultrasonic transducers for the inspection of MIG and MAG welds using the ultrasonic transmission technique.

Tube Testing Transducers

Ultrasonic transducers for the inspection of tubes and hollow railway axles and wheel sets.

High Temperature Transducers

Ultrasonic transducers for inspection at higher temperatures with heat resistant delays.

High Frequency Immersion Transducers

Very high-resolution immersion transducers, 25 MHz to 50 MHz.

RL Transducers

Refracted longitudinal wave angle beam transducers, single and dual element, for inspection of coarse grain materials such as austenitic steel pipe welds.

Boreside Arrays

Multi-element ultrasonic transducers, with water feed, for the inspection of tubing from the ID.

ZIP Probes

“Zero Interface” delay line transducers for manual inspection of composite materials.

Custom Probes

One size doesn’t always fit all. We have a lot of probe options to choose from, though new materials, manufacturing processes, and joining technologies sometimes require a custom solution. We are fully equipped and ready to design high-quality probes specifically for your needs.
