Acoustic Resonance Inspection Systems = “ARIS” (Electromagnetic Acoustic Spectroscopy)

The Competitive Advantage of ARIS

  • 100% Cross sectional coverage without moving parts
    Through thickness resonance allows for simultaneous surface and sub-surface inspection coverage of both physical (defects) and material (microstructural) properties.
  • Superior Resolution
    Advanced ultrasonics supports the detection of small defects such as inclusions that would be impossible by other techniques. Meets or exceeds ASTM F2282.
  • Fast Measurement Times
    A quick and non-contact technique enables in process, non-invasive inspection and can eliminate post production inspection and the use of liquid couplants required of ultrasonic systems.
  • Small Equipment Footprint
    Miniaturized sensors and compact test fixtures are ideal for fast in-line installation and ease of change over or complex integration into post production inspection systems.

Custom Applications

By Applying ARIS, Resonic NDT will:

  • Eliminate product defects caused by wire anomalies including seams surface and subsurface, inclusions and microstructural inconsistencies
  • Detect and Verify Alloy, and Wire Process Path compliance
  • Reduce Tool Breakage caused by wire anomalies
  • Detect before the process monitor indicates wire troubles
  • Reduce Post Production Inspection demands
  • Greater flexibility in wire sourcing
  • Lower material costs
    And a Machine Operator runs the system. NDT training not required.

How it works – How ARIS Detects

  • Tuned transducers (EMATS) generate a specific class of acoustic waves.
  • All alloy types can be tested
  • The acoustic response emitted from the wire or rod is a detailed signature of the microstructure, material process history, whether good, defective or improperly processed
  • The acoustic output is determined from three variables; diameter, alloy and the material process path
  • Simulation of the localized, fully circumferential acoustic field generated in the material

What Defects ARIS Detects

  • Discontinuities such as cracks, seams and button defects affecting the modulus or elastic properties in the surrounding areas. Also crack precursors or abnormally high stress locations. The defect severity is indicated as a function of change in the signal response against defect
  • Inclusions both hard and soft as well as porosity are detected selectively in the cross section
  • Variance in material process path conditions that include; Rockwell or Vickers variance, decarb and microstructure consistency
  • Insensitive to typical surface conditions, roughness and most lubricants

How to Buy ARIS

Inquire, Evaluate, Purchase

Contact Resonic first to discuss your application or address the technical aspects of your applications for the ARIS product line.

If suitable Resonic can evaluate your test samples and provide a short video of the test process. There already is a library of demonstrations on the videos cited in the application pages. Evaluations once qualified can be performed on measurement or sensing applications not described in the application pages.

On-site demonstrations or short term evaluations can be arranged through our qualified agents. Contact Resonic for the location of our representatives.

Once the application is well defined and the test requirements established a purchase quotation can be provided.
