fast & easy setup

The set up time for an inspection is less than one minute. The PALM flat comes in one peace, ready for inspection. Simply connect your probe, wedge and couplant supply and start inspection.

Safety

New or repaired welds are usually inspected by radiography (RT). The technology requires the evacuation of the workers on site, as well as considerable time for developing the RT films.

High Productivity

Inspecting welds by Phased Array means immediate results for the operator. Welder and inspector work back to back on the job. Repair or exchange decisions can be made on the spot which saves time & cost.

PALM Flat

NDT inspections of  butt welds are a complex task. This type of joint is found in various structures throughout the industry. Experts  inspect these to find defects which could result in the failure of a component, possibly inducing a human or environmental hazard.
 
Inspection Robotics’ Palm flat answers today’s challenges to successfully and reliably perform weld inspections on large diameter pipes or plates. Ultrasonic Phased Array technology provides several benefits in terms of safety, productivity and inspection quality.

Weld assessment

Five factors define the quality of weld inspections:

  • Safety
  • Inspection duration & productivity
  • Precision & reliability
  • Quality & data management
  • Cost

Advantages of Phased Array (PA)

  • Maintenance optimized in terms of cost and duration
  • High Safety
  • No radiation, no evacuation of personnel
  • No loss of welding productivity due to immediate NDT results
  • improved fusion flaw detection

Key features PALM flat

  • compact, lightweight & rigid system
  • fast & easy setup of the system
  • magnetic wheels
  • break lever to hold the scanner in place
  • miniature rolling encoder for accurate sizing & position recording
  • no axial slippage
  • minimum maintenance
