Abstract:

Although most attendants of this meeting are concerned with the attribute of RUS that apply to the determination of elastic properties, it should not be forgotten that the major industrial use is part sorting based on mechanical property differences. RUS is rapidly being accepted as an industrial tool for nondestructive testing. Many industrial installations are now in existence, which help define the space for the best applications. The primary uses of the DRS Q9000 is for quick and accurate passfail testing. The Q9000 is an effective system to detect defects in ferrous and nonferrous metals, ceramics, and sintered metals. The DRS Q9000 can accurately and economically test parts for cracks, dimensional variations, proper heat treatment and plating thickness. Often a single measurement cycle or scan across a specified frequency range provides sufficient data for multiple tests The Q9000 serves as a stand-alone audit center, providing fast analysis for audit and pre-production verification. By integrating the DRS Q9000 to an assembly or machining center, the Q9000 system can provide 100 in-line testing. Specific examples will be discussed, especially where no other NDT methods were previously successful.
