Multi2000

Phased Array UT for Testing Machines

Eddyfi Technologies (M2M) has been providing phased array systems to integrators since 2004. Today, several hundreds of machines integrating M2M systems have been delivered and commissioned all over the world. Because integrating phased-array system for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is never easy the first time, our industrial department is here to help and has people with more than 20 years of experience with integration.
