Ultrasonic transducers

Olympus ultrasonic probes and transducers are used for flaw detection, thickness gauging, materials research, and medical diagnostics. Our more than 4,000 transducer types include contact, dual element, shear wave, delay line, and immersion. If you don’t find what you’re looking for in our transducer catalog, we can create custom and special designs.

Eddy current probes

Olympus eddy current probes consist of the acquired brands of Nortec and NDT Engineering. We offer more than 10,000 standard and custom designed eddy current absolute probes, standard references, and accessories. This section features many of the standard eddy current probes types that are available in a wide range of diameters, frequencies, and connector styles.
Olympus also offers custom eddy current probe systems to meet specific inspection requirements. There are many different types of probes available that can be designed to match the contours of a part or shaped to fit into a fixture for fast and accurate inspections.
Please note that product availability varies by region. Contact your local Olympus sales office for more information.

Phased array probe

Olympus offers a wide variety of phased array (PA) probes using piezocomposite technology for all types of phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) inspections. The standard Olympus PA probes featured here are divided into three types:

Angle beam probes
Integrated wedge probes
Immersion probes

Other types of probes can be designed to suit the needs of your application. Ultrasonic testing using phased array probes is fast becoming the preferred NDT method because it is efficient, reliable, and safer than some alternative methods. Linear arrays are the most commonly used phased array probes for industrial applications. One important feature that defines phased array probes is the active probe aperture (the total length of the elements in the active plane). From dual array probes for welding to PA probes for corrosion, each option provides fast scan speeds, sharp imagery, and accurate testing results.
