Gyro is a versatile single encoded, rotary axis manual scanner for C-Scan inspection.

The highly adaptable design allows the rugged rotary scanning platform to attach to the ends of studs, bolts, pins and pipes via interchangeable jaws, covering a wide range of applications.

Gyro can be supplied with a range of clamping jaws to securely fit to either the inside diameter (ID) or outside diameter (OD) of components of varying shapes and sizes or pipes for application-specific inspections.

Gyro’s scanning platform mounts to the scanner body and houses a phased array probe and automated UT probe on adjustable tool post rails. An integrated high resolution, non-slip encoder allows the operator to accurately position the sensor bay on and around the end of the inspection site and rotate the platform with a smooth scanning motion to produce C-scan inspections.

Robust and ergonomic in design and materials, Gyro can be operated by just one inspection engineer and is compatible with any industry standard instrumentation.

A versatile scanning solution for operators in the Oil & Gas, Nuclear and Power Generation industries.

Typical applications for Gyro include:

  • Oil & Gas – Stud, Bolt, Pin and Pipe Inspection
  • Nuclear and Power Generation – Stud, Bolt, Pin and Pipe Inspection
