Construction Applications
Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement


  • Measure wear and wall thickness of tracks, rollers, and bearings of construction vehicles
  • Requires access to only one side (typically outside) of component


Recommended Gauges
Ultrasonic Flaw Detection


  • Verify integrity of welds: check for lack-of-fusion, undercuts, and cooling cracks
  • Inspect for fatigue cracking of components and structures
  • Locate and size discontinuities in structural components
  • Also addresses thickness measurement applications

Recommended Instrument
