Installation of squirter unit in India
5th April 2014
A 3 axis squirter system has been installed at an aerospace customer in India
This is designed for inspection of flat composite panels up to 3 metres long and 2 metres high. The system is a travelling gantry type with motorised X, Z1 and Z2 axes and manually adjusted Y arms.
Although this is a very simple configuration in mechanical terms, it incorporates the same sophisticated ultrasonic electronics and software as in much larger and more complex USL machines. For example simultaneous through transmission inspection with a logarithmic amplifier and pulse echo inspection using a linear amplifier, with multiple amplitude and time-of-flight gates.
