Automated Phased Array Weld Inspections

Damage Detection Along the Entire Weld

Gecko Robotics provides phased array weld inspections to complement its core Rapid Ultrasonic Gridding (RUG) and Rapid AUT (R-AUT) corrosion mapping inspections. Inspections cover weld seams, heat affected zones (HAZ), flanges, and any other areas prone to cracking or other damage mechanisms.

Provided both manually and robotically, the GRIT team has the tools to inspect anywhere you need in the shortest possible time. Our Level III inspectors review all data to identify and characterize any damage present.

High Resolution Mapping

With thousands of readings per square foot, PAUT uses electronic and mechanical scanning to easily overcome the limitations of UT spot checking.

Bulk Data

Continuous readings are achieved across the asset, rather than on specific, predefined points.


5x faster than conventional AUT.

Pairing with TOFD

Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) operates on the same robotic platform for increased sensitivity to corrosion.

Hydrogen Damage Detection

Leading Technology for the HIC/SOHIC and HTHA Detection.

Safety for Inspectors

No need for confined space entry or scaffolding. Eliminate the risk that put humans in harms way.

Phased Array for In-Service Inspections

In the Technology for Robot-Enabled AUT Inspections webinar, Chase David and Jose Aparicio take a deep dive into the technology and robotics being pioneered to thoroughly inspect ferritic assets like tanks, pressure vessels, and piping using inspection techniques of Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing and Automated Ultrasonic Testing.

Extreme Detail and High-Volume Data Collection

PAUT transducer beams can be sized, angled, and steered, allowing for extremely detailed mapping or sectorial scanning. A large amount of high-resolution data can be stored allowing for better documentation. Due to its comprehensive data capture, the probability of detection (POD) is dramatically improved over classic methodologies.
