Bond Testing Reinvented
Eight Frequencies in the Same Scan
Bond Testing Improvements
- C-scan imagery.
- Can drive up to eight different frequencies at the same time.
- Dimensioning capabilities.
- Improved POD.
- Phase/Amplitude display mode
Important to Note
- Detection similar to that of the BondMaster® 1000e+ instrument, since the same probes
- Designed to support pitch-catch probes.
- Two-axis encoding scanner is required to produce the C-scan.
Advanced Composite Inspection
Olympus is proud to launch our new bond testing OmniScan® solution—a big step forward in the field of composite inspection. Now, easy-to-read C-scan imagery is possible using a portable instrument. This OmniScan solution is ideally suited for disbond detection in honeycomb composite, as well as equally accurate delamination detection. Primarily designed for aerospace in-service inspection, this solution is also useful for the manufacturing sector, including the automotive and naval industries (e.g., for composite boat hulls).
Customers who already own an OmniScan® ECA or ECT module only need to order the standard BondMaster® probes (P14 and SPO-5629) and the BondMaster cable that are required to complete this solution.
Our customized MXB software has been developed especially for composite inspection; new features, such as the wizard and normalization, help to keep operation simple for the user.
Encoded system: any two-axis encoding scanner can be used to inspect a part. Olympus offers two options: the GLIDER™ scanner, which is well-suited for flat or slightly curved surfaces, and the WING™ scanner, which is specially designed for scanning curved parts (e.g., aircraft fuselages) and can even be used upsidedown due to its Venturi vacuum-cup system. For more versatility, a handheld one-axis encoding scanner, equipped with an Indexer Clicker, is also compatible with this system.
Innovative C-Scan Display
Again, Olympus innovates by introducing a new way of displaying on-screen data. For each C-scan, the operator has two viewing options to choose from: the amplitude C-scan displays color variation based on the amplitude of the signal, regardeless of the phase, which is ideal for clear and efficient disbond detection; or, the phase C-scan uses a 0° to 360° color palette to display changes in the phase angle, making it easy to distinguish between different types of indications, such as putty (repair) and delamination.

This solution is available in two different configurations, both requiring these standard components.
