Olympus released WeldSight companion PC software for the OmniScan X3 phased array (PA) flaw detector. Compatible with conventional ultrasonic testing, PA and time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD) acquired data, the software enables inspectors to perform thorough post-inspection analyses that comply with strict validation requirements of international standards. Experienced inspectors can perform advanced validation of indications using the software’s weld analysis tools. Powerful screening capabilities cut down the need for cross validation. The software is also equipped with a geometry-based weld gate that generates a C-scan using data from inside the weld only.
