|The probes (transducers) are a very important part of
ultrasonic NDT instrumentation.
The Starmans Company is mostly using one's own types of ultrasonic probe being developed in its laboratories and in some but not numerous special applications probes of other manufacturer are connected to the Company's devices as Dio2000.
The conventional probes are the single (one element) and dual (double element) probes for longitudinal and transversal waves. According to the direction of the beam axis there exist straight and angle probes. The both kinds of probes are shown on the picture. Besides for special purposes as inspection of concrete, wood or for specimen with curved surfaces special focusing probes were developed.

and one oblique beam
for small diameter
|Often probes for manual testing are not suited for
automated and mechanized testing carried out with multichannel
installations. The laboratory of the Company Starmans is designing and
developing probes which are suited for the determined purpose.
