Consistent UT inspections with user-friendly Ultrasonic Phased Array Flaw Detector
Ultrasonic Phased Array Flaw Detectors
The powerful next generation of UT inspections has arrived with the Mentor UT Phased Array Flaw Detector. Take the guesswork out of ultrasonic flaw inspections using the most accurate and intuitive tool on the market today.
The entire UT flaw detector system is housed in a glove-friendly touchscreen tablet that’s as easy to use as a smartphone. Pre-loaded Mentor Create software is fully customizable, allowing for user-defined menus and workflows (apps) for step by step guidance through the inspection process– from calibration to probe location to analysis. Confident and educated users mean that even the most complex inspections are performed consistently every time.
Mentor UT is the first ultrasonic device to easily allow wireless connectivity and live streaming, so inspectors can get real-time second opinions when they need them. That same wireless cloud connectivity enables Mentor UT to remotely generate comprehensive inspection reports on users’ desktops with the click of a button.
User-defined menus can walk technicians through every step of any inspection - from probe selection and calibration, to reporting - ensuring consistency across your inspections, every time, from every inspector. And with the flexibility to load multiple workflows on one device, you can guarantee easy access to the right apps for any inspection
A process that used to be cumbersome and complicated has been made simple thanks to the most comprehensive end-to-end UT solution available.
We used to be GE Inspection Technologies, now we’re Waygate Technologies, a global leader in NDT solutions with more than 125 years of experience in ensuring quality, safety and productivity.
With superb mechanical design and quality, our field-proven PALM scanners offer unparalleled ease of use for operators inspecting circumferential butt welds.
Despite the increasing use of adhesives as a joining technology for automotive body panels, adhesive bonding may not provide 100% process reliability. The Bond Scanner identifies areas with lack of adhesive, as well as misaligned bond lines, and provides a workflow-based, reliable inspection with the Mentor UT.
With performance rivaling that of a full immersion C-scan system, our easy-to-use RotoArray gives you faster, more reliable Scan-images, all with the portability of a handheld probe. Together with the Mentor UT, this phased array inspection device allows rapid scanning of a wide variety of materials and components, making ultrasonic inspections even simpler.
Increase productivity with our solid axle mechanized testers (SAMT). Designed for front-face inspections of railway axles, this flexible solution delivers the required steering angles to optimally cover the axles's full lateral service. And combining SAMT with our Mentor UT's multi-group capabilities enables faster, safer and more accurate inspections.

Key Solution Characteristics
High-performance design powers efficiency
Mentor UT was designed around user needs. Its intuitive glove-friendly touch screen and a durability rating of IP65 allow for more accurate and efficient inspections, under any industrial conditions.
Perform inspections confidently using Mentor UT’s powerful 32:32 phased array flaw detector (upgradable to 32:128) with conventional UT channel and 18kHz pulse repetition frequency (PRF).
Perform smarter end-to-end inspections with confidence
Ensure that UT flaw detector detection inspections are performed consistently every time by custom-tailoring workflows (apps) to guide users through the calibration and inspection process step by step. On-board wireless connectivity and data export capabilities streamline one-touch reporting and analysis (offline analysis software included).
On-demand live support empowers inspectors to make on the spot maintenance decisions anywhere, anytime.
Mentor UT also features unmatched probe versatility. Choose from commonly found Tyco or Ipex probe connection options, or industry-standard Phasor-style connector for improved probe compatibility.
This device also easily pairs with Waygate Technologies' industry-leading dual-element linear DM probes for corrosion inspection, linear array probes for weld and composite inspection, as well as a wide variety of commercially available scanners.
