Olympus introduces the RollerFORM™, a new phased array wheel probe designed to address the inspection of composites and other smooth-surfaced materials, such as those commonly used by the aerospace industry. An affordable and easy-to-implement replacement for full 2-D encoding systems, the RollerFORM also offers a viable alternative to immersion techniques.
The unique tire material of the RollerFORM has been specifically developed to guarantee high-quality, immersion-like ultrasonic testing. Minimal couplant and pressure is required for the RollerFORM to provide excellent coupling and a strong signal, even in difficult scanning positions.
Exceptional coupling, requiring minimal couplant.
Acoustic impedance similar to water.
25 mm water delay line enables inspection of composites up to 50 mm thick.
Up to 51.2 mm wide beam coverage.
Can be used in accordance with existing aircraft manufacturer procedures.
