Business field Solution business by  Ultrasonic inspection ・Measuring
Ultrasonic probe・AffixUltrasonic probe・ Affix
Japan Probe makes & sales ultrasonic probes, cables, wedge, couplant and tools for ultrasonic inspection & measuring, these technologies apply various application and Japan Probe in high quality control meets rapid requirement & needs to customer.
Pulser & ReceiverPulser & Receiver
Ultrasonic probe sends signal to object and receives reflected echo. It is the equipment to measure & evaluate for inside defect, property and shape. It(P/R) is high power & high sensitive in more than 100 times than conventional equipment. It is suitable for material evaluation and automation of production line.
NAUT21 is possible to inspect and measure by non contact air coupled ultrasonic method.
It is applicable to the materials being free from water and couplant such as materials causing damage with wetting, high temperature and low temperature. It is possible to inspect, to measure and to evaluate materials which are not applicable.
Efficiency improves rapidly. We offer ultrasonic systems.
Consignment StudyConsignment Study
To meet inspection, measuring and evaluation to material property and environment, Japan Probe develops the latest research of technology for needs of market with advanced research enterprise and institution. With this bases we offer consignment examination and research.
