FMC-TFM solution - Webinar

Key design elements considered in the development of the VEO+ are user and performance focused. Based on a superior and innovative digital technology, four available PA configurations (16:64PR, 32:64PR, 16:128PR or 32:128PR) are offered as software options.

Along with Xpair Cloud Remote Access and Export to CSV, the FMC-TFM gives access to FMC recording of the acoustic information, and TFM imaging phased array probe.

Typical applications include Weld Inspection, Crack Detection, Corrosion Mapping, Aerospace and Composite Testing.

Superior Digital Technology

The Veo+ offers superior data throughput and unsurpassed computational capacity. It delivers fast and accurate results using an impressive 32 channel PA beamformer that provides exceptional SNR, through the use of enhanced digital signal processing.

Data file size is not a concern for the Veo+ thanks to its 64-bit Linux operating system because it can count on a fast 128GB SSD memory capacity allowing you to record huge amounts of information in a single acquisition file.

Intuitive Menus and Workflow

The intuitive menu system is application and workflow driven, with set up and operation swiftly becoming second nature. Integrated help and Wizards guide the user through scan set up whilst Optimisation Tips ensure the Veo+ always performs at the highest level. Fast and efficient wizards for sound velocity; wedge delay, TCG, DAC, TOFD setup and Encoder calibration are all provided as standard.

The inspection plan shows the operator in 3D where probes are positioned on the test part, simplifying the inspection set up and providing an inspection reference for reporting. Using the latest computer technology, data can be permanently recorded for processing and report generation. All adjustments to focal laws are instantaneous, with angle resolution to 0.1° and up to 1024 focal laws without loss of performance.

New FMC-TFM software option

  • Multiscan acquisitions (FMC-TFM scan and PA scan)
  • Encoded FMC-TFM on one or two axes
  • TFM high-resolution and large area imaging
  • TFM multi-mode analysis
  • FMC recording for complete traceability

Remote Control Solution

Using Sonatest’s Xpair software application, Veo+ can be fully used and controlled remotely, via a simple network connection. Veo+ now offers WiFi along with its fast GB Ethernet port.

Xpair opens the doors of true mobility in the NDT market. It is a PC-based software application solution to manage data transfer and remote control of instruments in the field wherever a network connection is available. Moreover, with the Xpair Cloud option, a user can access and remotely pilot the instrument of a colleague located 1000s of km away using a mobile or wired internet connection.


Advanced Analysis Software


UTstudio+ makes inspection data management easy.

Loaded with a comprehensive user interface, data analysis and setup file construction becomes natural and straight forward. From customised views to additional gates, measurement tools or refined colour palettes, UTstudio+ helps you generate extended reports and much more.

Suitable for FMC-TFM, phased array and conventional ultrasonic technologies, UTstudio+ is able to accomplish amazing things and get the job done for a multitude of simple advanced applications.

Loaded with comprehensive user interface, inspection data and results are now freely accessible to anyone who wants to review them. From customised views to additional gates, measurement tools or refined colour palettes, UTview helps sharing results with collaborators to get the job done faster.


Ideal WheelProbe Partner

Efficient and effective scanning can also be achieved when the Veo+ is partnered with Sonatest’s wheelprobes, namely the new WP2.


Flange Inspection PAUT

Flange Inspection PAUT

Phased array gives the ability to inspect flanges without having to take them apart, resulting in quicker and cheaper inspections.

Phased Array Bolt Inspection

Phased Array Bolt Inspection

Traditional methods for checking bolts include removing and visually checking for any cracking, this not only takes a long time but can also cost a huge amount of money

Remote NDT - Field Applications and User Cases

Remote NDT - Field Applications and User Cases

The remote control capabilities of instruments nowadays ease the development of new NDT applications, especially in harsh environments or restricted areas where it can be difficult to bring together measurement instrument and technician.

High Temperature Hydrogen Attack (HTHA)

High Temperature Hydrogen Attack (HTHA)

High temperature hydrogen attack (HTHA) is an irreversible deterioration of the mechanical properties of steel due to the reaction of hydrogen with carbon at temperatures in excess of 200°C.

Advanced Corrosion Mapping

Advanced Corrosion Mapping

The WheelProbe 2 features a captive array in an adaptive rubber wheel making it a perfect corrosion mapping solution for large surface.

Roller Probe Inspection

Roller Probe Inspection

The through transmission inspection technique is a widely accepted method for honeycomb assessments.

Low Frequency PA Inspection

Low Frequency PA Inspection

The inspection of heavy composites thicker than 50 mm (2 inches) causes significant limitations for conventional phased array probes.

Low Frequency PAUT Inspection of GFRP

Low Frequency PAUT Inspection of GFRP

Certain heterogeneous materials can be highly attenuative to ultrasound. As a result, lower frequency probes are required, especially for thick sections which otherwise can be difficult to inspect.

Austenitic Stainless Steel Solution DAAH – Dual Linear Array Probe

Austenitic Stainless Steel Solution DAAH – Dual Linear Array Probe

300 series stainless steels are the most common sub-group of austenitic steels and are used in a large variety of processes and industries, typically for corrosion resistance of high temperature service. Comprehensive inspection techniques are vital to ensure safe operation.
