Applications

Nozzles and other thick components with variable geometry and made with coarse grain material like cast stainless steel.

Principle

The active array is made of individual elements with 2 rotations and 1 translation axis, and allows concave and convex deformation in two dimensions.
The elements are encapsulated in metal housing and are compatible with halogen free requirements

*These configurations have been developed and tested for a given application. This list is not exhaustive, and the concepts of 1D and 2D flexible transducers can be adapted to match other applications requirements.

Advantages:

  • 3D beam steering capability
  • Feasibility of certain inspections
  • Improvement in focusing quality by being freed from the interface geometry
  • Increase in lateral resolution through the use of larger active dimensions
  • Halogen free
