Flaw detectors are machines that use sound waves to detect internal flaws without destroying the sample. Flaw detectors can reveal cracks, holes, delaminations, and corrosion in various samples, such as:
Applications for Flaw Detectors
Flaw detectors are used in quality control in various settings, including:
Materials testing laboratories
Plastics and ceramics industry, and more.
By aiming sound waves at a material and measuring how the waves are distorted, flaw detectors are able to find irregularities in many materials.
Considerations for purchasing a flaw detector
Flaw detectors are not all the same. Some measure material thickness and corrosion, while others only measure cracks, voids, and delaminations. Before purchasing a flaw detector, be sure that it can be used with the materials you need to test. Ease of use is another factor to consider before buying a flaw detector.
