Featuring UT probes, CCD video camera for V-Scan grid positioning, and industrial notebook PC with software, ShafTest[R] portable ultrasonic system provides repeatable in-situ testing of shafts and axles. Software highlights cracks and provides tools to plot ultrasonic cross-sections through shaft at any depth chosen by operator. System requires only shaft-end access, avoiding equipment disassembly or multiple setups and scans in confined situations.
Portable system allows fast in-situ scanning from shaft end, maximizes data capture and detail, while 3D graphic displays and software tools speed and simplify crack analysis
