ALUTEST-BB series systems are designed for automatic ultrasonic testing of bars and billets made of aluminum, titanium, copper, and other Non-Ferrous metals.
Like the NORDISCAN-BB series, ALUTEST-BB systems can be delivered in two different configurations: “Pass Through” and “Gantry”. Unlike the NORDISCAN-BB, however; the UT probes of ALUTEST-BB are designed to meet the most stringent standards of the aerospace industry such as:
EN2004-2, AMS 2630, prEN4050, ASTM D857, EN2004-2, BAC 5439-3 (Boeing), NADCAP, ASTM B594, ASTM E2375 – 08 (2013), IGC 04.25.116, ABP 6-5232 (Airbus).
Nordinkraft actively cooperates with top suppliers of equipment for the aerospace industry and non-ferrous metallurgy, therefore ALUTEST-BB systems can be supplemented with additional peripheral systems that provide: automatic measurement of conductivity, analysis of metallurgical structure, and high-precision measurement of geometric dimensions of control objects as well as marking, sorting, and packaging.
Thus, the basic set of ALUTEST-BB equipment can be expanded to become a Turnkey, fully integrated “Acceptance control line” according to the individual requirements of our Customers. Nordinkraft, as a single-source supplier can handle these integrated control needs.
ALUTEST-BB is a completely modern set of equipment based on truly revolutionary principles for an extremely precise and smart examination of bars made of aluminium, titanium, steel, etc. ALUTEST-BB performs a fully automatic ultrasonic examination of bars for internal defects, their automatic conductivity measurement, sophisticated marking and sorting. All the functions meet the strictest internationally accepted norms.
The ALUTEST-BB series achieves multiple
- Detection of internal imperfections in rolled plates such as: laminations, non-metallic inclusions, porosity, shell, sponge, etc.;
- Detection of surface and sub-surface defects.
Typical Specification of bars to be Tested:
Diameters: 5 mm – 1000 mm;
Length: from 500 mm;
Material: stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, cooper and alloys.
Main Ultrasonic Testing Parameters
- Test Sensitivity:
- For internal imperfections: equal to FBH 0.4*;
- For surface imperfections: equal to notches 0.2 mm x 10 mm (D x W);
*Depending of material to be tested
Type of Applied Multichannel Ultrasonic or Eddy Current probes:
UT phase array probes;
UT probes with the array of piezo-crystals;
Eddy Current probes.
Ultrasonic Testing Standards:
Density of Ultrasonic examination, test procedures, acceptance criteria, data processing and representation adhere to multiple international and local standards such as: AMS-STD-2154, NADCAP, BSS7055 (Boeing), EN2004-2, AMS 2630, prEN4050, ASTM D857, EN2004-2, BAC 5439-3 (Boeing), ASTM B594, ASTM E2375 – 08 (2013), IGC 04.25.116, ABP 6-5232 (Airbus)
Testing and acceptance criteria can be customized based on client specific needs and new standards.
