Cast iron: inspection from cross section

We introduce the example that inspect a section of cast iron used in automobile parts by our array probe “KYOKUTAN: broad band high sensitive flexible array probe”.

Iron castings are used as parts of an automobile, an airplane, a motorcycle, converting machinery and an injection molding machine. In the inspection of cast iron, we need to understand their unique material and generation mechanism of shrink cavity, and ultrasonic properties of them.

This is the example of inspection by our array probe “KYOKUTAN”. This probe is possible to detect a surface layer defect.

You can watch the movie that we just touched a section of a cast iron with “KYOKUTAN” directly and detected simulation defects under 5mm, 30mm and 60mm from a surface.
