Cast iron: inspection of rough surface
We introduce the example that inspect a rough surface of a cast iron used in automobile parts by our array probe/transducer “KYOKUTAN": broad band high sensitive flexible array probe/transducer”.
Iron castings are used as parts of an automobile, an airplane, a motorcycle, converting machinery and an injection molding machine.
In the inspection of a cast iron, we need to understand their unique material and generation mechanism of shrink cavity, and ultrasonic properties of them.
This is the example that inspection of a iron casting by our array probe/transducer “KYOKUTAN”. This probe/transducer is possible to detect a surface layer defect.
You can watch the movie that we just touched a rough surface of a cast iron with “KYOKUTAN” directly and detected simulation defects with diameter of 3mm and 5mm, under 15mm from a surface.
