These systems may apply different ultrasonic testing (UT) techniques: TTU or PE, as well as conventional or phased array technology. Tecnatom has also become a leader in the application of laser ultrasonic technology (LUS). Other contactless techniques, such as air coupling and dry-probes, have been included in some of the most recent Tecnatom developments. Also, complementary to UT techniques, thermography and artificial vision sensors are also being implemented in new Tecnatom systems.
Technatom subsidiary M2M (Les Ulis, France) also exhibited at JEC, presenting the new Multi2000 version 8.0, released last October, which is compatible with 64-bit operating systems up to Windows 8. It provides high-speed composite inspection, up to 400mm/s, with a great pixel resolution of 0.5 x 0.5mm including full A-scan storage.
