Capture

Advanced Acquisition Simplified, Advanced Analysis Streamlined.

Capture™ is the streamlined software embedded in M2M Gekko® and Mantis™ portable flaw detectors, also available for desktop use. It is the dedicated solution for conventional Ultrasonic Testing (UT), Phased Array UT (PAUT), Time-of-Flight-Diffraction (TOFD), Total Focusing Method (TFM) and Adaptive Total Focusing Method (ATFM). Continuously evolving based on industry feedback, Capture enables inspectors to remain Beyond Current and be the best inspector they can be.

Features

  • Fully embedded PAUT/TOFD software
  • The most complete TFM toolbox
  • Enhanced data display and quality
  • Unique 3-click calibration wizards
  • Dedicated applications for challenging inspections
  • Highly versatile software platform

Details

Fully Embedded Software

Built for all-level operators, Capture is a complete software platform that covers all inspection needs from application design to inspection and reporting.

  • Application oriented templates, step-by-step application design
  • Complete probe, wedge and scanner libraries for most common accessories
  • Live overlay display for all geometries
  • Onboard focal law calculator for all probe configurations and techniques
  • Customizable inspection report for your needs

Capture offers a quick way to improve knowledge and requires minimum training for phased array inspectors.

Unique 3-Click Calibration Wizards

In addition to offering a complete scan plan for all techniques, smart 3-click calibration wizards help you work faster with confidence via:

  • Part and wedge velocity calibration wizard
  • Amplitude balancing and dead element check
  • Ultra-fast wedge angle and height calibration including AOD/COD wedges
  • Innovative and advanced Time-Corrected Gain (TCG) calibration.

Ask an Expert

Wedge verification and TCG are essential calibration steps that have historically been complicated and time consuming. Capture performs both quickly, easily, accurately.

An amplitude balancing image appears every three seconds.

The Most Complete TFM Toolbox

Benefiting from over five years TFM experience in the field, Capture now includes a complete toolbox covering most inspection needs with:

  • High resolution, real-time TFM up to 250k pixels and up to 128 elements
  • Scan speeds up to 70 images per second with 64 elements for a typical weld inspection (1in WT)
  • Compatibility with linear, matrix, DLA and DMA probes and all calibration wizards including advanced TCG
  • All TFM computation modes: direct, indirect, converted modes
  • Full Matrix Capture (FMC) recording.

Capture is the most comprehensive software for TFM on the market today, offering easy of use and advanced features. We're continuously developing Capture to meet the next NDT challenge and inspector needs.

Advanced Applications

Capture provides advanced and dedicated applications, managing complex geometries and inspection cases through a streamlined simple workflow.

  • Nozzle inspection with 3-axis scanner and live cross-section views
  • Fillet welds (T, Y) with multi-skip ray tracing and live signal display
  • 2.5D CAD overlay import for better diagnosis
  • Paintbrush 2D mapping with 3-axis rotating arm
  • Unique Adaptive TFM solution for wavy surfaces

These innovative solutions enable easier data interpretation, providing that extra level of confidence in data data analysis, going beyond basic requirements.

Enhanced Data Display and Quality

For efficiency and reliability, Capture offers both basic and advanced analysis tools for all techniques —including TFM— such as:

  • A-B-C-D-Scan, top and side views
  • Real-time 3D view and component overlay display
  • Live missed data information
  • Customizable layout views for all groups
  • Complete set of analysis tools (cursors, gates, indicators, indication table)
  • 16bits and 800% amplitude dynamic to prevent saturation.

Capture software updates remain focused on simplifying daily analysis workflows with the goal of increasing productivity and reducing false calls.

Versatile Software Platform

Capture GO is natively embedded on Gekko and Mantis PAUT/TOFD units, while Capture Companion provides the same features for PC use. Windows based, it features full connectivity to simplify data management.

  • Easy file management and remote control through Ethernet/wireless (TightVNC, TeamViewer integrated solutions)
  • No compromise on data file size (no limitations, SSD up to 1 TB)
  • Compatible with the Silverwing RMS PA corrosion mapping scanner
  • Compatible with CIVA Analysis and Ultis
  • API data access data display and analysis on external software

Designed for the most demanding applications and highest level of requirements, Capture is ready for your current and future challenges.
