Detachable Active Array Head (DAAH):A Proposed Solution to Help the Proliferation of Phased Array Manual UT

As the price of portable phased array instrumentation drops, the current phased array probe technology doesn’t allow for a major cost reduction, to a point where the proliferation of phased array for manual UT may be limited or impossible. The current manufacturing process is presented to better understand where the high costs come from. A Detachable Active Array Head (DAAH) technology is proposed to solve many problems related to manual phased array UT, but also to semi-automated and automated UT. Results show that the technology has a great potential to become the long-awaited solution for phased array massive adoption.
