Ultrasonic wheel probe
Our famous patented array wheel probe is the result of many years of research and careful design, in consultancy with our RapidScan2 customers in the aerospace market. It features a wide conformable rubber tyre which is acoustically matched to water, providing low loss coupling into the test part for high quality results without the need for gel or large quantities of water. It is ideally suited to hand scanning of large flat or slightly curved parts, covering large areas quickly and efficiently. A central spring loaded roller ensures consistent coupling pressure across the sensor even when scanning narrow parts. Incorporating a 64 element phased array with 0.8mm resolution, and a high resolution position encoder, the Array Wheel Probe provides high quality, high resolution data. Various sizes of wheel and levels of array are available and can now also be used with many instruments on the market.
