Hollow Rail Axle Inspection System

Boretest is an ultrasonic NDT hollow train axle inspection system designed and manufactured by Tecnitest NDT, a leading European Advanced NDT Company.

Built to offer an easy and reliable solution for hollow train axle inspection, the Boretest is the ideal solution for in service inspections. Transported on a fork-lift truck is easily manoeuvred between inspections.

Boretest is able to test the complete axle from just one side of the train with 100% of the axle being inspected in one pass. Actual inspection time is less than 30 mins. This is carried out by utilising different angular and zero degrees ultrasonic probes to maximise the probability of detection.

The simple, user friendly set-up system avoid the need to prepare complicated calibration set ups before each inspection. As well as being easy-to-use the Boretest is versatile, allowing the testing of different types of axles within a range.

The Boretest records the results of every inspection, including the calibration, for further analysis, again highlighting the efficiency of the unit.
