Veo3 Inspect with Confidence

Retaining the best features of the established Veo line, the new Veo3 now offers a PCAP touch interface, user templates, and more importantly, live TFM.

Key design elements of the Veo3 are user and performance focused.  Based on superior and innovative digital technology and its live concurrent multi-scan / multi-technique capabilities, the Veo3 truly helps you to inspect with confidence.

The Veo3 multi-techniques allow inspectors to keep inspecting as they always have, with no need to change their current workflow and by doing so, users can benefit from the additional resolution and sizing performance of TFM while carrying out an already approved, trusted and reliable procedure.

Superior Digital Technology

The Veo3 offers superior data throughput and unsurpassed computational capacity. It delivers fast and accurate results using an impressive 32 channel PA beamformer that provides exceptional SNR, using enhanced digital signal processing.


Data file size is not a concern for the Veo3 thanks to its 64-bit Linux operating system because it can count on a fast 128GB SSD memory capacity allowing you to record huge amounts of information in a single acquisition file.

With its advanced technology the Veo3 is unique in allowing real-time multi-scan/multi-technique capabilities.  Simultaneous TFM, PA and TOFD views are now possible.

Intuitive Menus and Workflow

The intuitive menu system is application and workflow driven, with set up and operation swiftly becoming second nature. Integrated help and wizards guide the user through scan set up whilst optimisation tips ensure the Veo3 always performs at the highest level. Fast and efficient wizards for sound velocity; wedge delay, TCG, DAC, TOFD setup and encoder calibration are all provided as standard.


The inspection plan shows the operator in 3D where probes are positioned on the test part, simplifying the inspection set up and providing an inspection reference for reporting. Using the latest computer technology, data can be permanently recorded for processing and report generation. All adjustments to focal laws are instantaneous, with angle resolution to 0.1° and up to 1024 focal laws without loss of performance.


With its unique architecture the Veo3 can generate up to six live TFM scans, produced from multiple FMC sources on different probes, and also generates TFM images of up to 500k pixels with a maximum resolution of 100 pixel per mm without limiting the number of pixel per axis.


All of the data received during Full Matrix Capture (FMC) scanning can be recorded on the Veo3.  As a result, further detailed analysis can be performed including comparison with previous inspection data to identify trends and flaw/corrosion growth rates. 


The Veo3 can combine up to 4 live TFM modes. As known as TFMi™, the details of the defects have never been so close to the reality. That imaging scan provides a high-precision height assessment and an improved shape accuracy compared to conventional PA inspections.

The ability to characterise the type of defects is now effortless. This technique has indeed demonstrated superior results on weld analysis.

utmap_256x256 (1).png   Stitch, Analyse, Export

UTmap is analysis software that creates a Tiled Scan (T-Scan) and generates small to large images of the inspection results. Each C-Scan can be positioned or stitched together to form a T-Scan and represent the part geometry. Once assembled, the T-Scan represents a meaningful image for analysis and reporting.

UTmap also offers features including the ability to import drawings, outlines and information as images to overlay on the T-Scan and automatically providing precise flaw data and dimensions.

UTview logo.png   Review, Collaborate, Trust

Loaded with comprehensive user interface, inspection data and results are now freely accessible to anyone who wants to review them. From customised views to additional gates, measurement tools or refined colour palettes, UTview helps sharing results with collaborators to get the job done faster.

xPair_App_Icon_SQ.pngShare, Control, Transfer

Using Sonatest’s Xpair software application, Veo3 can be fully used and controlled remotely, via a simple network connection. 

Xpair is a PC-based software application solution to manage data transfer and remote control of instruments in the field wherever a network connection is available. Moreover, with the Xpair Cloud option, a user can access and remotely pilot the instrument of a colleague located 1000s of km away using a mobile or wired internet connection.

Phased Array Technique for Inspection of Contact Point Corrosion

Phased Array Technique for Inspection of Contact Point Corrosion

The PA-CAT™ phased array technique developed by Holloway NDT & Engineering Inc. is an attenuation-based modelling algorithm used to evaluate the minimum remaining wall thickness at pipe or vessel supports.

Inspection of Nozzles using the Veo3 and Scannner

Inspection of Nozzles using the Veo3 and Scannner

Traditional UT inspection is time consuming, creating a scan plan and then performing the scan using multiple transducers. When using the Veo3 and Nozzle Scan the set ups can all be done offsite, thereby substantially reducing and easing site work.

Flange Inspection PAUT
