Eddy Current Flaw Detectors

Eddy Current Flaw Detectors by Olympus are suitable for inspecting metallic parts accurately. They are capable of detecting surface and near-surface defects with a high level of precision. Blue Star E&E offers a full range of portable flaw detectors to serve a wide range of industrial applications. The Eddy Current probes produce magnetic fields that induce current, which flows in the test piece, impacting the magnetic field, magnitude and phase of the coil voltage. This is popularly used for applications like detecting surface and near-surface defects, alloy sorting and the inspection of bolt holes.


All the latest advancements by Olympus in high-performance eddy current flaw detection are combined to design the compact, robust and portable NORTEC 600. The full-screen mode on its vivid 5.7 inch VGA display enables it to produce highly contrasting and clear eddy current signals, irrespective of the lighting conditions. The redesigned interface of the NORTEC 600 is the perfect blend of all the recognised features of its NORTEC predecessors and the innovative features of Olympus products like a simple menu structure and direct-access keys. Available in four versatile models, the NORTEC 600 offers a wide range of innovative functionalities and is suitable for various applications. It is designed efficiently with features like application selection menu, all-in-one display, real-time readings and signal calibration.

OmniScan MX ECT Eddy Current Testing (ECT) is one of the most effective electromagnetic testing methods used in NDT, making use of electromagnetic induction to detect and characterise surface and sub-surface flaws in conductive materials. By using eddy currents, large areas can be examined very quickly without the requirement of coupling liquids. Apart from finding cracks, eddy currents can also be used to check metal hardness and conductivity in applications where those properties are suitable.
