Speed up complex ultrasonic inspections

QuartZ is the answer for complex and high-speed inspections and is optimally designed for the oil & gas, manufacturing, and transportation markets. QuartZ achieves an excellent balance between speed, power, and flexibility for the most complex inspection environments and applications.

QuartZ is ideal for inspecting tubes, pipes, plates or forgings, composite materials as well as train wheels, rails, and axles. When combined with UltraVision software’s legendary power and software development kit (SDK) flexibility, QuartZ is the perfect choice for creating custom inspection solutions.


Meet your specific needs, today and in the future

UltraVision® 3 Classic controlled: Tap into the full power of QuartZ. Offering a 3D work environment, UltraVision delivers the full inspection process within the same software package, from inspection design to advanced analysis and reporting.

Scalable: Up to 10 QuartZ units in parallel controlled by the same UltraVision. Almost no inspection configuration is too big.

Easy integration: Multiple QuartZ units can be synchronized in a simple cable configuration. Changing from a tabletop to 480-millimeter (19-inch) rack mount configuration is as simple as adding the included mounting brackets.

Made tough for harsh environments: QuartZ can be installed close to the probes, reducing cable length. No air conditioning is needed, saving in project complexity and installation costs.

Increase inspection productivity

Parallel firing capability: QuartZ supports 32:128 or 2×16:64 configurations for two simultaneous apertures on one or two probes.

Integrated probe splitter: Connect two phased array probes without any additional accessories.

High power phased array channels: QuartZ incorporates a real 100V pulser for the phased array channels, ideal for the inspection of very thick or difficult to penetrate materials.

Two powerful conventional UT channels: A full inspection configuration with two PA probes and two UT probes only needs one simple instrument.

High data throughput: QuartZ can deliver up to 30MB/s of data throughput making all the difference for demanding applications.

Automatic probe detection: When using Eddyfi Technologies' probes, QuartZ automatically detects the probe(s) and connection to help ensure you are using the right probe while simplifying traceability in the reporting process.

Time reversal support: Inspect various geometry-changing surfaces of composite materials without complex surface following mechanics or previous knowledge of the exact part shape.



Metal manufacturing requires providing high-quality parts for a very large range of applications. Cycle time minimization is critical for the optimization of production rates. QuartZ offers the right tools and scalability to address most applications.

Tubes, Pipes and Plates

QuartZ allows creating the right solution for the inspection of tubes and pipes, plates, or forgings. Inline and offline applications are ideal for QuartZ, easily creating a complex inspection configuration when required.

The increasing use of composite parts that have complex and variable geometries creates inspection challenges. Time reversal is a real-time and adaptive technique that does not require knowledge of detailed component profiles. QuartZ and time reversal together simplify the inspection process of complex composite parts for rapid and reliable PAUT inspections without the need of complex surface following mechanics or previous knowledge of the exact part shape.


The transportation industry is especially concerned by security. Train wheels, axles, and rails need to be inspected at manufacturing and at regular intervals. QuartZ provides the tools for building the right solutions.
