NDE 360 Platform

The NDE 360 is the most versatile and expandable hand-held touch screen NDT Platform for Quality Assurance/Quality Control. Add on NDT Systems as you need them...

The NDE 360 multiple system platform is a compact, lightweight, but robust battery powered handheld system offering mobility and simplicity for use in the field by one person. Test data is stored on the compact flash and can be analyzed on-site. The NDE 360 includes several add-on NDT test/software system options, making it a complete suite for nondestructive testing and evaluation of civil structures at an attractive price. This platform accommodates complete data processing capability for most test methods. Unless you are adding an 8 MB memory option that is required for the Impact Echo Scanner system, there is no need to return the equipment when adding systems.

The NDE 360 is field tested and proven through frequent use by our NDT consulting company, Olson Engineering. Optional training for both hardware and software is available. Visit our website often as we are continually adding new test capabilities to our platforms. Don't see what you need? —let us know!

Training

Hands-on training is available for all of our NDE test methods at our Wheat Ridge, Colorado (USA) location, which is a suburb located approximately 15 minutes northwest of downtown Denver. Training may be available at your location by one of our agents/engineers upon special arrangement.
