New demands, new needs
The economic and human stakes linked
to the quality or the safety of materials mean that
improvements in inspection procedures must be continuously sought.
During the last decade, like
echography in the medical field, ultrasonic non destructive
testing has asserted itself in the industrial field as a high
performance, reliable, economic and flexible
technique presenting no risks to operators.
Transducers are a key
component of ultrasonic inspection instrumentation. The performance
and flexibility of an inspection line are widely
based on the functional performance of the transducers
within the application context.
Inspection situations and performance
needs in terms of detection and evaluation of defects are extremely
varied. Standard transducers allow numerous inspections with
good results but industrial situations and performance
needs offen require transducers which are custom engineered
taking into account the constraints of the applications
essentially due to:
- the various inspection methods
- the parts to be inspected,
their geometry and their constituent materials
- the environmental conditions
- needs of performance
Innovative and high
IMASONIC has developed a new
generation of ultrasonic transducers which incorporates the
innovative technology of piezoelectric materials using a composite
structure called piezocomposite.
This technology has proved itself to
be the most powerful currently on the market from numerous
aspects directly linked to performance, reliability or
even the feasibility of inspections themselves.
Amongst the aspects where
piezocomposite technology is the most advantageous can be listed:
- great flexibility with
regard to inspection methods
- efficiency and precision of
- adaptability of the
transducers to harsh environments
IMASONIC provides you with this new
technology for your non destructive testing applications and
offers transducers adapted to your needs by jointly
defining with you the objectives to be reached.
