Make It Visible!

Visualizing Cracks, Voids, Delamination, and Other Hidden Defects Normally Impossible to Check Visually


Anyone Can Quickly and Easily Perform a
Visual Surface Inspection


Thanks to Shimadzu’s proprietary light imagining technique, 
which combines an ultrasonic oscillator with a stroboscope, 
defects near the surface of a material, including peeling of the bonding and adhesive surfaces of heterogeneous materials, as well as paint, thermal sprays, and coatings can be inspected easily and non-destructively.

Enables inspections according to the object size
  • Simply attach the ultrasonic oscillator to the sample, and position the camera above the inspection surface.
  • The propagation of the ultrasound is quickly displayed, and flaws are easily identified from the video.
  • The easy-to-operate software is enhanced with functions to mark the flaws and measure the size easily.
  • The lineup includes an optional optical zoom set,  which can detect smaller flaws.

Utilized in Various Industries


  • Utilized in Various Industries
  • Ultrasonic optical flaw detection enables the visualization of internal flaws (at a depth of about 1 mm) that are hard to find using conventional ultrasonic testing. It can easily detect flaws in joints and bonding surfaces in research and development processes involving multi-materials, which are created by combining different materials to increase strength and reduce weight.
