TSC Inspection Systems launches new crack detection solution and probe range

19th July 2017

TSC Inspection Systems proud to launch a new portable ACFM® crack detection solution and probe range - PACE™ & SENSU™.

Over the last 30 years ACFM® technology has played a major role in ensuring safety and integrity of critical infrastructure worldwide. With a proven track record in the energy, transportation and defence sectors, ACFM® continues to gain positive recognition in the field of advanced NDT as the most accurate solution for surface crack detection.

As new industrial sectors have discovered the time and cost saving benefits of using ACFM, the demand for a more flexible and lightweight instrument has increased. Responding to this through user consultation and field testing, TSC are proud to release a revolutionary new portable ACFM® instrument - PACE™. 

Developed through operator focus and field testing, PACE ™ embodies robust, user-centric, ergonomic features; with a high-contrast toughened screen, long battery life and supported by a new generation of software. Ensuring high levels of data integrity and assurance,  PACE™ will be setting new standards for the non-destructive testing for surface breaking crack detection.

TSC’s functional design approach continues in the new and innovative probe range SENSU™, which partners PACE™.  These pencil style ACFM probes, with a straight nose and right angle nose, have been designed to perform easy, continuous scanning whilst being able to gain access to challenging tight angle inspection areas. As “intelligent” probes, the SENSU range stores configuration information and provides instant feedback of scanning status whilst in use.

Dr Payam Zargarzadeh, TSC’s Product Design and Development Manager, states: “This is an exciting time in product development for TSC. PACE™ is a smart, portable, lightweight, handheld ACFM® instrument which offers a reliable solutions for rope access, on-shore/off-shore (top side) inspections.  This new instrument, software and probe range sets a benchmark for future product development at TSC; whilst redefining the productivity and the performance of ACFM® inspections in the field”.
