Flaw Detector

Flaw detectors are machines that use sound waves to detect internal flaws without destroying the sample. Flaw detectors can reveal cracks, holes, delaminations, and corrosion in various samples, such as:

  • Structural metals
  • Welds
  • Plastics
  • Composite materials
  • Ceramics

Applications for Flaw Detectors
Flaw detectors are used in quality control in various settings, including:

  • Materials testing laboratories
  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Plastics and ceramics industry, and more.

By aiming sound waves at a material and measuring how the waves are distorted, flaw detectors are able to find irregularities in many materials.
