Ultrasonic Testing Welds (Plate) - Level I

Course title

Overview

Our Ultrasonic Testing Welds (Plate) - Level I course provides comprehensive training in the field of ultrasonic testing. Ultrasonic testing utilizes high-frequency sound pulses emitted from a transducer, which are then induced into the material through a probe in contact with the material. These sound waves propagate through the material and are reflected to the probe when they encounter an interface. Reflected waves are transmitted back to a detector, displayed as signals on a monitor, and interpreted by qualified inspectors to accurately evaluate the internal structure of the material.
