Olympus NDT will be hosting a free educational Webinar series titled “Introduction to Phased Array Inspection Using the OmniScan MX2” that will be running throughout the first part of 2013. These webinars will take the participant through the basics of preparing a single-group phased array inspection using the OmniScan MX2. While learning phased array theory and basic inspection concepts, participants will also be exposed to application examples and real-world success stories. The OmniScan MX2 family of ultrasonic flaw detectors with touch screen interface offers increased testing efficiencies and powerful new on-board and PC-based software features, ensuring superior manual and advanced AUT application performance with fast setups, test cycles, and reporting
The series is progressive and each part will lead into the next. Throughout the series participants will learn about the OmniScan MX2 instrument, OmniPC for offline analysis, the NDT SetupBuilder, and TomoView Software for Analysis. Participants will have an opportunity to submit questions or comments that will be addressed during the events. Each successive Webinar will start with a short review from the last section prior to continuing to the next step.
Introduction to Phased Array using the OmniScan MX2 Part 1 - January 29 – 11:00 AM EST.
Part 1 of the series will cover the essential ingredients of phased array and basic theory. It is geared toward understanding the equipment used to generate phased array inspections and includes the introduction to the OmniScan MX2 user interface. What is the difference between conventional UT and phased array inspection?
Introduction to Phased Array using the OmniScan MX2 Part 2 - February 27 – 11:00 AM EST Part 2 of the series will cover sector scan basics and introduction to the data views and displays commonly used in automated UT and phased array. This includes use of the OmniScan MX2 group wizards, and setup and configuration of UT.
Introduction to Phased Array using the OmniScan MX2 Part 3 – March 21 – 11:00 AM EST
Part 3 of the series will cover gate and C-scan configurations for weld inspection, calibration options and limitations, and include explanation and demonstration of the OmniScan MX2 calibration wizards for manual inspection.
Introduction to Phased Array using the OmniScan MX2 Part 4 - April 24 – 11:00 AM EST
Part 4 of the series will cover inspection and analysis with an emphasis on flaw sizing and characterizations using the sector scan data view. The user will learn and see examples of how the tools in the OmniScan MX2 are used to measure and record data for a manual inspection. This will include pros and cons of sector scan and linear scan groups, focus and coverage strategies, and application examples while learning to navigate the OmniScan MX2 software.
