WAVE


Overview

What if you could tailor the settings on your UT device and alter it to your own process and people’s needs? An instrument where all the useful parameters are pre-set and available in less than two clicks?  Now you can.


Introducing WAVE by Sonatest. It integrates the latest technologies available in order to create a revolution in the ultrasonic non-destructive testing equipment market.
Not only is it innovative, but the customisable interface also optimises the daily workflow, and a unique and embedded interactive scan plan, with ray-tracing capability and simulation tools, consolidates your results.
 
Its wifi capability allows you to access it anywhere in the field, eases data transfer, application installation and manages calibration date and software version.

Features

Interactive Scan Plan

#

The WAVE interactive scan plan has been developed to ease diagnostics on the inspected part.  The scan plan can reproduce complex geometries such as Curved parts and T-Joints.  Combined with a real-time Raytracer, this unique feature facilitates the distinction between a real flaw and a geometrical indication.  Thus avoiding unnecessary repair.

Application Concept

#

The WAVE application concept combines conformity and performance which allows the operator to customise the user interface according to their specific procedure.

The intuitive user interface with an easy to use display will guarantee workflow optimisation as well as preventing potential operational errors.

UTouch Technology

#

UTouch Technology allows your device to operate in the same way as a mobile phone.  Combined with rugged components and an intelligent algorithm which makes the distinction between couplant and finger.

WAVE Companion

 

#

The WAVE Companion software offers an environment where dedicated predefined applications setups are created and uploaded to Wave platform.

Once created, the new app setups are transferred and installed on the unit via wired (USB-C / ethernet) or wireless network. The default app allows access to all functionalities and features where the user can modify the entire settings.

Multi-frequency Inspection of a graphic/epoxy laminate composite with variable thickness

Focusing on the analysis of composite material C-scans acquired at various frequencies. Using the proper analysis software makes it possible to assemble all the C-scans to create images which represent the part inspected.

Ultrasonic Rail Solid Axle Inspection with the Sonatest Wave

Ultrasonic Rail Solid Axle Inspection with the Sonatest Wave

This type of inspection needs to be done after manufacturing of the axles, as well as multiple times throughout their working life.

Wave Nozzle Inspection

Wave Nozzle Inspection

Reflections on an A-Scan can be difficult to interpret. They may look as if they are coming from within the weld, but in fact, due to the probe positioning around the part, these reflections may come from the land area behind the weld.

Structural Welds – AWS Inspection

Structural Welds – AWS Inspection

The Sonatest WAVE instrument with its Interactive Scan-Plan can significantly optimise the visualisation of the weld joints since the A-Scan signal is displayed along the sound path, allowing a comprehensive identification of potential defect locations.

Inspection of a Welded T-joint

Inspection of a Welded T-joint

The most common defects in T-joint welds are cracks, lack of fusion and lamellar tearing all of which can be inspected with conventional ultrasonic methods.

Spot-Weld Ultrasonic Inspection

Spot-Weld Ultrasonic Inspection

Sonatest rubber tips are designed to be used with the RDT delay line family and offer an effective alternative to the more traditional approach of water filled contact probes.

Polyurethane Adhesive Bond Inspection

Polyurethane Adhesive Bond Inspection

Testing of a single adhesive bond is not always straight forward task using a simple A-Scan.
