temate® SI-BW is designed for inspection of thin butt welds less than 12mm (<0.47”). temate SI-BW can be customized to meet your unique inspection needs.
- Non-contact EMAT technique.
- Guided waves fill up the volume of the material and provide through thickness inspection in one pass.
- Detects and discriminates “planar”defects such as lack of fusion, lack of penetration, concavity or mismatch, and “point” detects such as holes and porosity.
- Capable of detecting porosity as small as 0.1mm in a 3mm weld.
- Less sensitive to probe positioning, no “rastering” motion or “phased array” of sensors necessary.
- Self-calibrated sensor.No need for teaching period or regular calibrations.
- Permits inspection at up to 1m/s in completely automated environments.
- Exclusive flexible sensor technology that conforms to the surface and undulations of the part.
- Inspects any type of weld（Laser, Electron Beam, TIG, MIG, ERW, Flash-Butt, Forged, etc.).
- Proven technique with hundreds of systems installed.
