How to simplify welds NDT inspection using Total Focusing Method (TFM) and Phased Array UT (PAUT)

Girth-weld inspections require numerous parameters to be specified on most flaw detectors. The Gekko and its user interface (Capture) solve these challenges. Using off-the-shelf probes, the NDT inspector can quickly configure his unit, scan and analyze the collected data with confidence.

In this Webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How fast Capture makes it easy to get ready to scan using ultrasonic techniques such as Total Focusing Methods (TFM) and Phased Array (PAUT), how streamlined is the analysis of TFM data and how chosen approaches compare
  • How adding TFM to a PAUT unit overcome limitations of each technique
  • A case study: girth-weld inspection setup, data acquisition, and analysis overview
