The Optech line of laser ultrasonic inspection products has myriad applications for real-time manufacturing diagnostics and inspection. The core technology in these systems is the advanced laser ultrasonic receiver. IOS sells three receivers on a common platform that are designed to meet the broadest range of customer requirements. The benefits of laser ultrasonics in the manufacturing sector include:
- Totally non-contact and non-destructive, with only laser beams touching the surface
- Capability for measurements on parts with high temperature (>1000°C) and moving at high velocity (>1 m/s)
- Submillimeter spot sizes for high spatial resolution
- High bandwidth (100 MHz) for high defect sensitivity and precision depth resolution.
We have demonstrated our laser ultrasonic system in factories for real-time wall thickness measurement and weld inspection. Read more on our laser ultrasonics pages.
