The GEKKO: – A Portable phased-array ultrasonic flaw detector with industry leading Total Focus Method (TFM) functionality.
GEKKO is a robust and portable advanced UT tool that can cover traditional PAUT requirements and Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) along with TFM to improve POD and accessibility, when required.
It’s versatility, accuracy and high quality imaging can provide clients with the best possible resolution for all their UT challenges; including welds, HIC, corrosion pitting and bolt/thread corrosion.
TFM can be used as an alternative to High Energy RT on extremely thick components e.g Castings and Forgings from 100mm (4”) to 250mm (10”), with intrinsic depth evaluation.
The Gekko is compliant with all code requirements for its traditional applications and with its TFM functionality transcends these requirements, as necessary, for nonstandard situations.

With a 64-channel parallel architecture, GEKKO is the only flaw detector offering conventional UT, standard PAUT, TOFD and real-time Total Focusing Method (TFM). Some procedures require standard UT, others TOFD or PA. Why choose? With Gekko everything is included.
Gekko is the first portable phased-array flaw detector able to drive matrix arrays and real-time Total Focusing Methods (TFM). With state-of-the-art hardware and software, Gekko provides unique features and will continue to improve to follow specification evolutions.
GEKKO software has been developed for all-level operators. The step-by-step interface simplifies the menus and reduces the risk for errors.
Flaw detector GEKKO is IP 66 allowing an operator to use it in rainy and dusty environments. GEKKO supports extreme weather conditions.
