MUSE Mobile Ultrasonic Equipmentg

NEW: Manipulator Z-400
The MUSE, a portable ultrasonic imaging system, was developed for in-field inspections of light-weight structures. The MUSE consists of a motor-driven manipulator, a water circulation system for the acoustic coupling and a portable ultrasonic flaw detector (USPC 3010). The MUSE provides images of internal defects (A-, B-,C- and D-scan).

Applications
