Sensitive to surface and subsurface discontinuities it’s a superior inspection tool wen compared to other NDT processes. Phased Array is known for its capabilities to send multiple singles into material to produce highly repeatable results and detailed and accurate cross sections of components. This makes Phased Array a needed to tool to inspect complex shaped parts.
