NDT Industrial Scanners

NDT Industrial Scanners

NDT industrial scanners can be used across a wide range of industrial applications to improve speed, data quality, and the probability of detection (POD). We offer industrial scanners with one or two axes (XY) in both motorized and semiautomated (manual) versions. Our weld inspection scanners can hold multiple probes, enabling multi-technology inspection with an improved POD.

Our corrosion inspection scanners are used on pipes or flat surfaces in conjunction with the HydroFORM™ scanner, flexible phased array probes, or Dual Linear Array™ probes, while our aerospace scanners are made to hold onto composite surfaces. To complete your inspection solution, Olympus offers many phased array probe and wedge models as well as accessories, such as pulser-receiver preamps, adaptors, and water pumps.

Weld Inspection Scanners

Olympus has a wide range of scanners to address fabrication or maintenance weld inspections needs. We have solutions for small pipes up to flat plates with the capacity to hold multiple probes for complete weld volume coverage. Whether you choose a motorized or manual option, our scanners offer versatility, dependability, and repeatability.

Corrosion Inspection Scanners

Corrosion mapping is a highly demanding application that requires the capability to precisely encode the probe’s position in up to two axes. The scanners can be mounted on pipes and flat surfaces and are easy to use for fast detection of defects from manufacturing-induced lamination to in-service wall thickness reduction.

Aerospace/Wind Blade Inspection Scanners

Inspecting large areas with fast C-scan acquisition is a critical feature for the aerospace industry. Scanners with suction cups are well suited to holding onto composite surfaces, so you can perform mapping with up to two precise encoded axes.

Scanner Accessories

From couplant feed units to pulsers and preamplifiers, Olympus offers multiple accessories to help improve data quality as well as the repeatability of inspections.

Industrial Scanner FAQ

Why should a scanner be used for NDT inspections?

A scanner enables you to precisely position one or multiple probes according to a part being inspected. The distance between the probes, their pressure against the surface, the couplant feed, and the measurement of the distance traveled all have tremendous impact on the data quality. Scanners improve all these factors to provide greater signal stability and repeatability.

Are scanners code compliant?

Yes. In fact, several codes and standards call for the use of a scanner. Scanners fall into two categories—semiautomated and automated. In all cases, the probes are positioned according to the part by the scanner, and the scanner’s position is monitored by an encoder. Semiautomated scanners are moved by the operator while automated scanners are motor-driven.

Why choose an automated scanner over a semiautomated scanner?

An automated scanner can be preferred because they enable users to perform an inspection from a distance. This is valuable when inspecting difficult-to-reach surfaces. In addition, automated scanners offer a steady scan speed, even at low speed, which can be difficult to obtain using a semiautomated scanner. A slower scan speed can be required for demanding applications such as TFM inspection where the instrument acquisition rate is limited. Of course, automated scanners can also be used to perform inspection at a faster pace than semiautomated scanners for increased productivity.
