… your tool for contact-free ultrasonic testing

LEAsys is the perfect tool for R&D laboratories or research institutions engaged in the nondestructive testing of composites, metals, and adhesive joints. The integrated scanner solution combines the innovative LEA technology with a high-resolution x-y scanner and real-time data analysis software. It enables contact-free high-resolution scans without the need of water or a coupling gel. 

The ultrasound signal is generated with XARION’s laser-based excitation technology. XARION’s proprietary optical microphone detects the acoustic signal transmitted or reflected from the sample. Through-transmission as well as single-sided (pitch-catch) measurements can be performed, allowing the detection of internal defects, delamination or porosity in a contact-free manner. For time-sensitive applications, XARION also offers an eight-channel microphone array system.
