Total Focusing Method (TFM) Resources
The total focusing method (TFM) and full matrix capture (FMC) have been available on industry-leading portable phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) instruments for several years, including the Zetec TOPAZ64. This newer technology is being applied on-site in various industries more than ever before. The recording of raw FMC data together with “live” TFM frames or standard PAUT data adds flexibility for using alternative wave modes or advanced reconstruction algorithms, thus providing additional information for characterization and sizing of challenging flaws. Zetec is a leader in this space offering inspection solutions with high-performance, advanced focusing technique capabilities.
The following tools and resources covering these newer technologies are designed to provide valuable insights about the benefits of advanced ultrasonic techniques and their implementation.
From webinars, articles and whitepapers to videos, these tools can help NDT technicians maximize the efficiency and accuracy of a code-compliant inspection.
