RSflite Composite Solution


Fast, integrated and portable, this is an optimal inspection ultrasonic NDT 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, an ultrasonic NDT system 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, UTmap and WheelProbe2 linear array solution.

Ultrasonic linear scanning solution

For composite inspection, a linear scan (L-Scan), sometimes referred to as an electronic scan (E-Scan), uses a group of elements of a linear array probe to pulse a single straight beam (1) , then another adjacent beam (2).  This sequence is repeated equally over the full length of the array (3) .


This ultrasonic NDT technique is particularly efficient to detect the most common defects inside the composite structure as it covers large area's rapidly and generates high-resolution data sets and images.
