Rapidscan 3D from Sonatest NDTS

The new Rapidscan 3D system – seeing is believing

The evolving Rapidscan Series from Sonatest NDTS now introduces the new and unique Rapidscan 3D which has the capability to scan structures quickly and accurately in 3-Dimensions using a co-ordinated measuring arm. The speed and ease of use of this system has revolutionized traditional NDT scanning methods; removing the need for both expensive immersion baths and tooling and also reducing the time taken to locate and identify defects and anomalies.

Speed is of the essence….

The Rapidscan 3D offers a complete and integrated ultrasonic scanning system. Large area coverage is possible due to the combination of the high resolution ultrasonic arrays used within the Wheelprobe™, powerful Workflows software and the measuring arm. Using the measuring arm to inspect parts is intuitive and remarkably efficient. The system is ergonomically designed to follow complex 3D shapes, which greatly reduces inspection time. The inspection of even large areas can now be achieved in a fraction of the time of traditional NDT methods. Accurate results are presented in the form of 3D images of the inspected part. These results can easily be shared and understood even by those without NDT experience.

Understanding in Depth…..

The Rapidscan 3D comes with complete suite of software tools, supplied as standard, enabling the storage of test measurements taken in situ. Post-processing and results analysis can be performed off-line or even off-site. Powerful analysis functions allow defects to be detected, sized and reported.

The Rapidscan software wizard allows the operator to quickly choose a specific part from a library stored on the instrument. These parts are supplied from a mixture of images based on specific 3D CAD models and parts generated from pre-defined stock objects. The wizard then presents compatible inspection tools for different regions of the test part. The library can be developed for many specific testing applications and environments, providing a selection of different measuring solutions.

Applications are wide and varied; performance within the Aerospace, Automotive, Marine and Composite Manufacturing environments have proved to be very successful, with focus on composite inspection, delamination detection, bond inspection and thickness mapping amongst other areas.
