Versatile, High-Tech Ultrasonic Wheel & Axle Inspection.

Nordco Inspection Technologies stationary Ultrasonic Wheel & Axle Inspection System consists of multiple probes, which allow simultaneous inspection of wheel and axle for optimal throughput.

Our ultrasonic sensor technology is deployed using proprietary multi-sensor shoe-style test heads, which conform to the journal bearing surfaces and wheel treads to be inspected. The actuated test heads are positioned over the rotating test surfaces, while a fine mist of couplant ensures proper transfer of the ultrasonic energy. All run-off liquid is captured, filtered and recycled into the couplant delivery system.
