FAAST-PA is a Phased Array instrument (PAUT) which is much more powerful than any conventional phased array electronic.
Thanks to its sinusoidal pulser and its real time data processing software, the FAAST has the capability to transmit multiple sound beams, multi-oriented and/or multi-focused, using multi-element probes with only one single shot, and then to process signals received from all beams in real time.
This patented technology (WO 03029808) revolutionizes the NDT field when speaking about UT inspection thanks to its high speed testing capabilities, as it is able to replace several conventional Phased Array systems running in parallel. It offers even more than speed as it also reduces the number of phased array probes, mechanical parts, maintenance and calibration time.
The FAAST technology can be applied to any type of application (tubes, bars, plates, aircraft components, railroad, etc…), on different materials (Titanium, Aluminium, Steel, Special Alloy, Copper, Composites, etc…) and in any industries.
