Long Seam Welds no longer a problem.

An innovative solution for longitudinal weld tracking. This magnetic STIX – 2 Probe Long Seam Scanner is built around a versatile pivoting frame bar which allows manual axial scanning down to 15.2 cm (6 in).

Custom encoder cable lengths are available.


Component Identification

The dual pivot frame bar accommodates longitudinal scanning applications. The synchronized dual pivot frame bar ensures precise scanner setup while full control is provided with the convenient handles.

A spring-loaded encoder maintains constant surface contact to ensure accurate scanner positioning. The spring-loaded encoder is fully compatible with all standard instrument.

Ergonomic handles provide comfortable scanner control while also providing mounting points for accessories.

Brakes are provided to lock the scanner in a required position.

The magnetic wheels are coated with urethane to reduce the effects of foreign debris obstructing the scanner motion. Two sets of 4 magnetic wheels are included with the system to provide optimal magnetic attraction during scanning operations.

Countless setup variations and adjustment options are the hallmarks of the vertical probe holder. Fine tune probe and wedge setup with these probe holders that also offer transverse scanning.
