Back in 2014, M2M now Eddyfi, was the first one on the starting block to begin the TFM race on a portable phased-array unit: The Gekko.
In 2017, we switched to second gear and released the Mantis, a smaller phased-array unit but still with TFM capabilities.
TFM has created new opportunities for the NDT market offering improved spatial resolution, dead zoneand sensitivity to probe positioning. Small indications such as HTHA are more easily detectable.
Strong from its experience with TFM and to stay ahead in the latest technological developments, Eddyfi is now switching to third gear with the release of the new Gekko/Mantis software, Capture 2.3 which is 3.5 times faster.
In the following video, we show this speed improvement for a 64-element probe configuration at maximum resolution with data being acquired every 1 millimeter along the mechanical axis. We can see that Fast Mode allows you to go from 21 mm/s to 80 mm/s (a 3.8 times speed improvement).
But like any good muscle car, the Gekko doesn’t stop at 3 gears. Eddyfi is already boosting the engine to unlock even more horsepower. Hold on to your hats and get ready! More enhancements coming very soon.
