Swiss-based Proceq launches new super-fast ultrasonic array detection solution
Schwerzenbach/Switzerland, December 16, 2106 – Global leader in portable measurement solutions for non-destructive testing, Proceq, has today announced the launch of its new Pundit 250 Array ultrasonic detection solution aimed primarily at the concrete testing market.
The new Pundit 250 Array takes ultrasonic multi-channel pulse echo testing to a new level. With 8 channels featuring 3 transducers each, the Pundit 250 Array is substantially faster and more accurate than any other standard equipment currently available on the market.
The new device can scan deep into concrete – and also fiber reinforced concrete. Its lightweight and compact design promotes increased accessibility and faster scans. One of the many user benefits offered by the new Pundit 250 Array is high resolution live view scanning. By holding the instrument against the concrete, an image of the inside can immediately be seen – showing defects, pipes and reinforcement, for example. It also features a panorama mode whereby the scans are automatically joined into one long image so that, for example, the whole of a scanned wall can be viewed.
Flexibility has been a key consideration in the design of the new device which is expandable up to 16 channels and various handle arrangement options are available to address customer preferences and fulfill application needs. The new Pundit 250 Array comes already equipped to receive additional enhancements, expected during 2017, which will help customers to maximize their investment still further.
Proceq CEO Ralph Mennicke said: “The Pundit 250 Array represents a milestone in non-destructive testing with huge opportunities and options for Proceq's users in the future. Every NDT specialist in civil engineering and concrete inspection should see this product.”
Marcel Poser, Proceq Executive Chairman and Tectus Group CEO commented: “The strategic investment which has brought Proceq to this position began in 2009 with the acquisition of CNS Farnell and has included the hire of additional experts to revamp Proceq’s ultrasonic product line. Proceq has launched 6 new products in 2016 and has geared-up, together with Tectus Dreamlab, to transform the NDT world with game-changing innovations to be launched in 2017."
