The Ultran Group (State College, Pa., USA) is featuring its U710 ultrasonic inspection system, a next-generation, turnkey solution equipped with patented transducers, a reportedly powerful software suite and robust hardware. Optimized for use in non-contact (air-coupled), immersion and direct/delayed-contact conditions, the U710 operates in either dual- or single- (pulse-echo) transducer modes. Ultran Group says the system features faster processing speeds and higher sensitivity than other non-contact quality inspection systems in the industry. The company will host live demonstrations at CAMX and encourages attendees to bring in samples to assess the inspection system in real time.
In the conference, Anuj Bhardwaj, president and CEO, will present a paper titled, “Application of Advanced Non-Contact Ultrasound for Composite Material Qualification,” which will highlight and provide examples of how noncontact ultrasound can be implemented in production quality control for composite materials. The presentation will take place in the Testing and Measurement track on Oct. 15 at 10 a.m.

When humans do finally travel to Mars, they will have to be well protected from a less-than-hospitable environment. The suit designed to do the job is already in development at NASA, and it relies heavily on composites.
