Spotwelds on automotive components and other structures require inspection for a number of possible failure modes. Adhesive (stick) welds, burnt welds and unfused welds are several types of failure modes.
Sonatest rubber tips are designed to be used with the Sonatest RDT family.
Rubber delay tips offer an effective alternative to the more traditional solution of water filled contact probes. They offer a robustness that gives a longer life than water filled tips. The rubber can dramatically reduce the couplant required for the inspection 7.5 MHz probes are recommended.
When considering a spot weld test, these round rubber delay tips offer an effective solution. The surface face is flexible and can be applied to uneven surfaces to give good results. The rubber material has the advantage of extended life time and the reduction in couplant required.
