Manual X-Y Scanner The GLIDER X-Y Scanner is a 2-axis encoding scanner for the manual inspection of slightly curved or flat composite surfaces. The scanner is well suited for raster scanning with the following technologies: Conventional ultrasonics (UT) Phased array ultrasonics (PAUT) Eddy current (EC) Eddy current array (ECA) Commonly inspected materials include composites and aluminum, using suction-cup pods; and carbon steel, using optional magnetic pods. Design Characteristics The X-axis is attached to two mounting pods. Depending on the material to inspect, one of the following models can be used: Suction-cup mounting pod (included) Magnetic mounting pod (optional) There are two encoder modules (one on each axis) to measure the probe position. The displacement of these modules can be in 3.27 mm steps, free running, or locked. The scanner comes in three formats (18 in., 24 in., and 36 in.), depending on the scan coverage needed: GLIDER 18 x 18 GLIDER 24 x 24 GLIDER 36 x 36 GLIDER Scanner Kit Includes: Two tracks for desired stroke (18 in., 24 in., or 36 in., depending on the model) Two displacement-encoding modules Two suction-cup mounting pods 5 m encoder cable compatible with OmniScan instruments Phased array yoke (40 mm) TOFD/PE yoke (31.75 mm) 90° probe holder mounting bracket 180° probe holder mounting bracket Probe holder bearing arm with springs Irrigation tubing and fitting Hard carrying case
