Ultrasonic Testing

Olympus' full range of portable ultrasonic (UT) flaw detectors provides unmatched capabilities for locating and sizing hidden cracks, voids, disbands, and similar discontinuities in welds, forgings, turbines, and other structural components.

Phased Array Testing

Olympus phased array (PA) instruments use multiple ultrasonic elements and electronic time delays to create beams that can be steered, scanned, swept, and focused electronically for fast, multiple-angle inspections of internal structures.

Eddy Current/Eddy Current Array

Olympus portable eddy current (EC) flaw detectors inspect metallic parts and perform highly reliable flaw detection of surface and near-surface defects.

Remote Visual Inspection

Olympus industrial videoscopes offer portable and intelligent remote imaging solutions with a host of advanced yet intuitive features to capture exceptional imagery of hard-to-access areas.

XRF and XRD Analysis (PMI)

Olympus XRF and XRD analyzers provide highly specific material chemistry for quick and accurate identification of pure metals and alloy grades, allowing users to make actionable decisions immediately rather than waiting several hours or days for laboratory results.

Rental Equipment

Rent, lease, or purchase your equipment directly from Olympus! We have a variety of testing equipment available, including thickness gauges, ultrasonic and eddy current flaw detectors, phased array flaw detectors, videoscopes, and handheld XRF analyzers.

Olympus's Inspectioneering Content

    Sponsored White Paper

    This white paper from Olympus summarizes the basic principles of phased array, explains the kind of data generated by the technique, and briefly discusses some of the advantages of phased array compared with conventional ultrasound.

    Sponsored White Paper

    This white paper discusses new solutions for long seam weld inspections, which have historically been challenging to inspect because of their thin wall thicknesses, the vertical weld bevel orientation, and the pipe curvature.
