Matrix array transducers

High density 2D arrays for 3D beam steering

5MHz 8x8ch 0.6x0.6mm
matrix phased array probe

Applications

  • Weld inspection
  • Inspection of parts with complex geometry
  • General NDT

Principle & Advantages

Matrix or 2D array transducers allow 3D beam focusing and scanning, thus opening up new possibilities

  • Control of the focal zone diameter in 3D, cylindrical beam
  • Inspection of volumes from limited points of access
  • Detection of defects that may have multiple, un-predetermined orientations

General Characteristics

  • Frequency from 500 kHz to 15 MHz
  • Unlimited number of elements, typically 16 to 1024
  • High S/N ratio and optimized pulse length thanks to acoustic matching to wedge material (Rexolite, Plexiglas, PEI, etc)
  • Reproducibility of the inspection through the homogeneity of performance between the elements of the same probe, and between different probes of the same type
  • High reliability over time thanks to a robust, watertight design, compatible with difficult industrial environments
