Heavy plate are flat products with a thickness in excess of 3 mm. Unlike hot strip, they are not wound into a coil. Heavy plate is used for the construction of bridges, ships, and drilling platforms.
The DEFECTOPLATE test system is used for the precision testing of heavy plate for laminar discontinuities using ultrasound technology. The test electronics detect discontinuities and pre-process the raw data. The analysis software further processes the data, displays graphically as a C-scan, and assesses it in accordance with selectable standards.
DEFECTOMAT: The DEFECTOMAT product family is used for testing semi-finished products for point and transverse defects in the material. Special probes are available for testing flat materials.
In addition, the MAGNETOSCOP and MAGNETOMAT measuring instruments are used for measuring permeability and magnetic flux density.
