Overview

DroneMAT is a electromagnetic acoustic transducer (EMAT) ultrasonic thickness (UT) gauge designed for industrial UAVs (Drones). It allows users to perform ultrasonic thickness inspections from drones in a more efficient, reliable and safer way. The modular and lightweight design allows conversion of any industrial drone to an aerial UT gauge, increasing the range of applications and utilization.

  • Decrease cost of inspection vs the conventional way by increasing inspection speed and elimination of auxiliary equipment

  • Eliminate working at height by inspectors and reduce potential risks

  • Modular design allowing integration to any industrial drone (total payload < 700 gr)

  • Allows inspection on any metal surface - coated, unbonded paint or corroded 

  • Independent sensor aligning to measurement surface

  • No contact required to perform measurements  - gap up to 3 mm / misalignment (angle) 25 degrees

  • Measurement immune to drone noise

  • User friendly App with easy data management  (including A-Scan and Inspection details)

FEATURES

EMAT Technology

  • EMAT technology allows significant advantages over standard piezoelectric thickness gauges in applications for drone inspections:

  • No paint removal required (non-contact up to 3 mm)

  • No surface preparation

  • No couplant required

  • Measures through unbonded paint

  • Sensor not required to be perpendicular to test material

  • Use in corroded areas

  • High temperature applications
