Be one step ahead with PACE™…

Over the last 30 years ACFM® technology has played a major role in ensuring safety and integrity of critical infrastructure worldwide. With a proven track record in the energy, transportation and defence sectors, ACFM® continues to gain positive recognition in the field of advanced NDT as the most accurate solution for surface crack detection.

As new industrial sectors have discovered the time and cost saving benefits of using ACFM®, the demand for a more flexible and lightweight instrument has increased. Responding to this through user consultation and field testing, TSC are proud to release a revolutionary new portable ACFM® instrument - PACE™.

Developed through operator focus and field testing, PACE™ embodies robust, user-centric, ergonomic features; with a high-contrast toughened screen, long battery life and supported by a new generation of software. Ensuring high levels of data integrity and assurance, PACE™ will be setting new standards for the non-destructive testing for surface breaking crack detection.

TSC’s functional design approach continues in the new and innovative probe range SENSU™, which partners PACE™. These pencil style ACFM® probes, with a straight nose and right angle nose, have been designed to perform easy, continuous scanning whilst being able to gain access to challenging tight angle inspection areas. As “intelligent” probes, the SENSU range stores configuration information and provides instant feedback of scanning status whilst in use.

  • Reliable, repeatable crack detection using ACFM®.
  • Accurate defect sizing, length and depth.
  • Inspection through coatings, no cleaning required.
  • No in-situ calibration required.
  • Integrated, portable, robust unit, IP65.
  • Large 7 inch (17.7cms), toughened, high brightness LCD screen.
  • Built-in camera, 5MP, for on-site images.
  • Long life battery (8+ hours) with desktop & in-car charger.
  • 4 secure corner harness points (IRATA compliant)
  • All features accessible whilst wearing gloves.
  • Feature design enables single-handed operation during inspection (left or right hand)
  • Ergonomic Design
  • Highly erosion resistant ceramic nose
  • Straight and Right angled
  • LED indicator for scanning function status
  • Hot swappable
  • Single person operation
  • Rope Access inspections
  • Topside onshore/offshore structures
  • Refinery piping and vessels
  • Cranes and towers
  • Pipeline welds
  • Painted/Coated Structures

Brand new high performance software works with the operator creating inspection reports detailing defect sizes, locations and scans. An on-board camera enriches the ACFM® reports, providing detailed imagery from the inspection site. Full records of scan data are stored for audit tracking and new desktop software supports the operator and client further, with functions to investigate scan data and to create bespoke client/job focussed reports. Desktop software will store all inspection data and allow the history and audit trail of inspections to be maintained and referred to.

  • Full record of scans and data for audit purposes.
  • Easy field report generation of defects found.
  • User-friendly, crisp, intuitive interface.
  • Easy access key functions.
  • Pre-inspection configuration, saving time in the field.
  • Instant presentation of ACFM® scan data on colour displays.
  • ‘Intelligent’ assistance during ACFM® defect sizing.
  • Image capture, automatically associated with the inspection data and reports.
  • Inspection reports generated to .pdf & .docx, with images, on-board the instrument
  • Support for all major previous ACFM® software features, e.g. markers, regions, notes, replay
  • Easy data and report backups to standard USB.
  • Data search/filtering options by component/operator etc.
