Ultrasonic Sciences Ltd.

United Kingdom

Ultrasonic Sciences Ltd (USL) is a leading manufacturer of automated ultrasonic testing systems. Over 300 systems have been installed throughout the world in applications as varied as acoustic microscopy of microelectronic components, to inspection of large complex composite structures. User industries include aerospace manufacturing, composite manufacture, production of metal products such as plate and tube, rail and road transport, power generation and advanced fabrication processing.

Systems are entirely designed and manufactured at the USL factory in UK, including scanning and manipulator mechanisms, electronics for motion control, ultrasonic data acquisition and software  controlling the complete integrated unit. One important feature is that all aspects of the system are operated from a single computer using one software package, thus eliminating the overheads and delays which can result when different functions of the inspection process are controlled by separate systems.

The USL equipment ranges from small laboratory scanning units, through multi-channel immersion systems for plate inspection to large scale multi-axis installations for squirter (water-jet) inspection of composite parts with complex geometries. Scanning systems more than 20 metres long are in operation in highly demanding manufacturing companies, with both cartesian and robot based mechanisms.
