Inspection Lamp Labino has introduced a new inspection lamp called MidBeam, used primarily in Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI) and Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI). This Ultra-Violet (UV) light is a new generation product, based on LED technology, aiming to assist users that perform long and repetitive MPI/FPI tasks.The main benefit of the handheld lamp MidBeam is its compact size and light weight. These features make it extremely easy for the user to operate and carry around even the most difficult inspection areas and structures. This is made possible without compromising the performance of the lamp whose intensity measures in excess of 4 500 ìw/cm2 (at 15 inches). MidBeam is available as Battery or Mains. The mains operated model weighs just 440 grams (0.97 lbs) and the battery operated model weighs just 560 grams (1.23 lbs). It is easy for the battery version to replace batteries and is equipped with a current regulator in order to maintain the UV intensity constant even when the battery fades. The batteries are conveniently located inside the pistol handle, making the ergonomics of the unit stable, removing concerns of loose belts or battery boxes during inspections. The design of the mains version makes it easy to support the light with a common stand on a bench. Each MidBeam consists of 4 UV LEDs offering a very broad and even beam. It is also equipped with a white light LED for after inspection. The heat generated from the LEDs is managed via a mechanical cooling system—no fans necessary.MidBeam is 100% free from UV-B and the lamp emits almost no visible light due to a visible light filter. It is compliant with ASTM UV-A intensity and wavelength specifications for FPI and MPI. LABINO AB +46 76 677 3406 Marios.Athanasiadis@labino.com www.labino.com Handheld XRF Olympus announced the release of the Flex Stand, a compact test stand for its DELTA handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers. This portable accessory offers a cost-effective and simple, hands-free solution to test small samples, standard size sample cups, and bagged samples. In the horizontal configuration, the sample is positioned in the chamber with an adjustable platform and secured with a groove and/or three-position ramp. In the vertical configuration, the sample is positioned in the chamber on top of the analyzer’s measurement window and held by gravity. The DELTA XRF analyzer is secured to the test chamber with a simple push and- click motion and is released with a convenient bar pull. The test chamber is shielded so that during testing, the x-ray radiation levels are at background. The portable Flex Stand is non-interlocked and is recommended for use with 40kV DELTA XRF analyzers. The DELTA XRF Flex is particularly convenient for a variety of sample types. Olympus NDT (781) 419-3562, www.olympus-ims.com/en/xrf-xrd/delta-handheld Leak Tester Uson’s Raptor™ single channel pressure decay leak tester is the company’s latest addition to a comprehensive line of leak detection instruments, equipment and automation systems. Raptor is a compact bench-top leak tester with built-in touch screen color display. It is programmable by a Uson App via an Apple™ or Android™ smart device tablet or phone. The user interface displays pressure plot, countdown timers, step results, coupling outputs and the current test pressure—keeping the operator informed of test status throughout the cycle. Technological advancement doesn’t stop with the HMI. Inside the tester is Uson’s compact high performance Stallion™ valve manifold block. Tested to 50,000,000 cycles, the Stallion™ valve block features self-cleaning valves and individual valve port control for maximum performance and reliability. The new leak tester is available in five pressure ranges from vacuum to 150psi, sufficient to cover most common air decay leak tests with resolution to 0.001psi. Ten discrete digital inputs and outputs (I/O) permit automation via PLC or computer interface, with data collection via USB or Ethernet. Raptor’s ten on-board programs provide versatility for testing many different types of parts. It has a small footprint and is lightweight at only 10.5 lbs. Allowing for a good smart fit into a wide range of applications and markets. Uson www.uson.com Ultrasonic Thickness Gage Olympus announced the release of the 27MG Ultrasonic Thickness Gage that is designed to make accurate measurements from one side on internally corroded or eroded metal pipes and structures.It weighs only 12 oz. (340 g) and is ergonomically designed for easy,One-hand operation. Despite its compact size, the 27MG has many innovative measurement features utilizing the same technologies that are available on more advanced thickness gages. The durable, rugged 27MG is battery operated and features a large, backlit LCD with easy-to-read numerals, and an intuitive color-coded keypad with direct access to many key features. Standard features include Automatic Probe Recognition to ensure optimal transducer performance, Auto Zero compensation to enhance the accuracy of measurements on hot surfaces, Gain Adjust to improve measurements on sound-attenuating materials such as cast metals, Differential mode, Hi-Low Alarm settings, and a Min/Max mode that recalls the minimum or maximum thickness at 20 measurements per second. The 27MG comes standard with the low-cost D7910 dual element transducer that enables inspectors to make thickness measurement for many basic corrosion applications. For measurements on very thin or thick materials, or small diameter pipes, Olympus has available a full line of dual element transducers. Olympus transducers compatible with the 27MG feature Automatic Probe Recognition that optimizes transducer performance by automatically recalling the default V-path correction. The 27MG is designed for inspectors and maintenance engineers that need to monitor the wall thickness in metal pipes, tanks, beams, and structural supports that are susceptible to corrosion on the inside surface. An ultrasonic thickness gage provides a quick, cost-effective solution by transmitting sound into the material from the outside, making it unnecessary to damage the part. Olympus Scientific Solutions Americas (781) 419-3562 www.olympus-ims.com Ultrasound Camera The DolphiCam Ultrasound Camera System provides crystal clear images of composite materials, offering the ability to identify, monitor and analyze any defects. Now, with the release of a new software and firmware update, users will be able to create high-res images of defects with even more flexibility.
