Installation for mechanized ultrasonic examination of shafts


Installation for mechanized ultrasonic examination of shafts

The installation is intended for flaw detection in rods, shafts and other rotating bodies. The installation is based on a “SCANNER” 8-channel ultrasonic flaw detector mounted on the carriage of a lathe. A multi-element acoustic unit with aperture contact, mounted in a tool holder, allows examination for integrity according to the requirements of standard OST 108.95803-96. The diameter of the rods and shafts to be examined is Ø30–150mm. Scanning speed is up to 1.2 m/min. The installation includes a coordinate system. The results are shown on the flaw detector display and can be stored in the memory and subsequently printed.
