GE Krautkramer WheelStar™ Train Wheel Inspection System for New Machined Wheels
The Batch and In-Line designs of the GE Krautkramer WheelStar product line provide ultrasonic inspection of new machined wheels during manufacturing and come with two different concepts:
While the Batch version inspects the wheels in a robust immersion tank configuration, the In-Line version is seamlessly integrated into the production flow and works with local immersion probe coupling.
Field proven, reliable ultrasonic electronics and a dedicated software package guarantee superior signal quality and ease of use of the overall system.

NEW: WheelStar – Batch is now capable of inspecting the wheel web – planar or curved - with linear phased array probes. This patented method means a significant leap ahead in productivity for wheel manufacturers:
Substantial throughput improvement for wheel web inspection: Test cycle reduced by up to 80% compared to single crystal probes (based on example wheel geometry)
Industry proven, patented ultrasonic contour adaptation algorithm – widely used as well in composite scanning applications
For more information on web inspection with phased array probes, an application report is available for download.
