Continuum Probe Designer™
Continuum Probe Designer™ is the flagship tool of Acoustic Ideas’s custom phased array transducer design service. The main product of this service is the geometrical design of the transducer, including the surface geometry of the transducer and the geometry of its elements. After validation of the design with Continuum Ultrasonic Modeler™, we prepare a complete transducer specification suitable for the probe manufacturer of your choice. Acoustic Ideas designers interact closely with you and with the probe manufacturer throughout the process to ensure a successful project from start to finish.

Continuum 4D™ is an ultrasonic phased array platform that is Acoustic Ideas’s unique answer to difficult inspection and application development challenges faced in aerospace, power generation, petrochemical and industrial applications. Compared with competing phased array technology, Continuum 4D™ benefits include:
Up to eightfold increase in inspection speed
Improved probability of detection through simultaneous multi-angle inspection, with no reduction in inspection speed.
Unlimited number of channels. Separate systems can be externally connected together to act as a unit.
Expansion of the component geometries which can be inspected through adaptability to complex geometry.
Simplification of robotic systems and inspection procedures through adaptability to complex geometry during array motion over the part.
Superior data interpretation through real-time 3D visualization of materials and defects
Greater ultrasonic sensitivities for large penetration depths and noisy materials though very high dynamic range and signal to noise ratio.
Full compatibility with existing Hypertronics phased array transducer connectors, allowing you to retain and use their current probes. New high density connector also provided for high element count probes.
