Automatic Ultrasonic Testing of Rotor Bores

 AUToRoBo is an advanced portable ultrasonic testing system built designed for inspection of (solid forged) rotor bores and other bores and tubes from the ID. It supports 2-8 channels of normal, shear, single and dual crystal probes and has inputs for bore axis and rotation indexing. The main ultrasonic unit is designed for use with probe-heads from most manufacturers and has additional digital interface signals designed to configured or programmed as motion control.


  • Portable workstation with electronics
  •  Industrial grade portable workstation
  • Socomate USPC series cards and multiplexers
  • Motion indexing and control electronics
  • Ruggedized trolley configuration option
  • Manual or automated bore ultrasonic probe head
    • Up to 8 UT channels can be attached
    • Any combination of single crystal / dual crystal probes can be attached
    • Quadrature outputs from linear and rotary motion
    • Any motion sequence can be used: raster, spiral, stepped
    • Typical head configuration of near field and far field normal inspection
    • Shear: forward, backward, clockwise and anticlockwise
    • TOFD probe channels 
  • Software and analysis tools 
    • Data archival and consolidation and b-scan generation
    • Developed surface c-scan reporting
    • Multiple channel consolidation (shear, compression, normal and angle beam) to single image
    • 3-d outer profile generation with defect mapping
    • Data integration from multiple segmented data acquisitio 
  • Cabling and umbilicals 
    • Interface with power, motion controls, couplant
    • Electrical signal noise isolation and reduction can be incorporated
    • Power supply isolation and battery based operations

 AUToRoBo can also be optionally integrated with eddy current sensor channels built into the same probe head.

Typical boresonic probe heads and motion systems have short range linear motion with full 360° capability. In such cases inspection of typical bores will be done in overlapping segments. The software and the motion indexing system permits data collected from multiple segments to be integrated to provide a single consolidated c-scan result for the entire bore.
