RSflite


Overview

Fast, integrated and portable, this is an optimal inspection solution for the composite industry

Ultrasonic Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) has helped engineers inspect all sorts of composite materials for years. Whether it be traditional aluminium laminates or today's more complex carbon fibre-based composites, ultrasonic NDT technology has the ability to acoustically see through these parts and create complete inspection maps. Comprehensive volumetric integrity reports can be generated and supported by imaging reports that are as easy to interpret as traditional X-Ray.

Active with key industry leaders for more than 60 years, Sonatest is proud to present the new generation RapidScan: the RSflite linear scanning instrument.

Advanced Composite Inspection

Advanced Composite Inspection

A complete picture of a large component can be produced by stitching C-scans together in the UTmap software.

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.

Inspection of Composite Materials

Inspection of Composite Materials

Adapting recognised ultrasonic techniques to perform NDT inspection of these composite components can provide reliable and repeatable results for both in-line and maintenance examination.
