Mistras creates one of the largest gantry scanning systems to date

MISTRAS Group, Inc. (NYSE: MG) has joined forces with HITCO Carbon Composites, Inc. to produce a 12-axes Ultrasonic C-Scan imaging gantry scanning system, one of the largest scanners built thus far for the inspection of aerospace carbon composite components.

The 24 foot long, 16 foot high and wide system will be used by HITCO for the scanning and inspecting of aerospace carbon composite components. With its towering twin scanning axes, the system will have the ability to inspect virtually any component within its realm using Ultrasonic Thru-Transmission and Pulse Echo Scanning.

Along with the size and versatility, the system will include state-of-the art software from MISTRAS Group and Resource Engineering, Inc. (REI), a supplier of precision positioning systems. The combination of MISTRAS' UT digital data acquisition package with REI's advanced mechanical gantry and motion control package will provide HITCO the ultimate in a precision UT gantry system.
