Olympus NDT offers the Glider, a manual 2-axis encoding scanner designed primarily for the inspection of composite and aluminum aircraft parts such as fuselages. The GliderR offers significant advantages due to its cost-efficient design, multi-technology capability, and lightweight but rugged construction. It is compatible with phased array (PA) or conventional ultrasonic (UT) probes as well as conventional eddy current (EC) and eddy current array (ECA) probes. Both axes offer a free-running, incremental, or lock mode. The standard, pivot-equipped suction-cup pods enable contour following on curved surfaces while the optional magnetic mounting pods extend the versatility of this scanner to corrosion-mapping applications involving ferromagnetic materials.
