MAIVIS Ultrasonic Optical Flaw Detector
Make It Visible!
Visualizing Cracks, Voids, Delamination, and Other Hidden Defects Normally Impossible to Check Visually
Anyone Can Quickly and Easily Perform a
Visual Surface Inspection
Thanks to Shimadzu’s proprietary light imagining technique,
which combines an ultrasonic oscillator with a stroboscope,
defects near the surface of a material, including peeling of the bonding and adhesive surfaces of heterogeneous materials, as well as paint, thermal sprays, and coatings can be inspected easily and non-destructively.
- Simply attach the ultrasonic oscillator to the sample, and position the camera above the inspection surface.
- The propagation of the ultrasound is quickly displayed, and flaws are easily identified from the video.
- The easy-to-operate software is enhanced with functions to mark the flaws and measure the size easily.
- The lineup includes an optional optical zoom set, which can detect smaller flaws.
Utilized in Various Industries
Ultrasonic optical flaw detection enables the visualization of internal flaws (at a depth of about 1 mm) that are hard to find using conventional ultrasonic testing. It can easily detect flaws in joints and bonding surfaces in research and development processes involving multi-materials, which are created by combining different materials to increase strength and reduce weight.
Inspection Result Screen
With ultrasonic optical flaw detection technology, the sample is encouraged the displacement of the surface is detected optically, and the propagation of the ultrasonic wave on the surface is observed.
The MIV-X Ultrasonic Optical Flaw Detector assists with regions where ultrasonic testing (UT) is difficult. Leave the non-destructive inspection of surfaces and near surfaces to MIV-X!
The instrument is equipped with a function to digitally remove noise in the window showing the propagation of the ultrasound, simplifying flaw identification.
The instrument is equipped with a user interface that simplifies operations, such as displaying a scale (ruler) on acquired images of cracks and peeling and measuring the distance between two selected points.
Decreases the minimum detection size by a factor of approximately two (MIV-X standard: From approximately 1 mm dia. to 0.5 mm dia.)
Laser optical axis adjustment is also possible, improving irradiation uniformity

Given that cellulose nanofibers（CNFs）offer attractive physical characteristics, such as light weight, strength, and hardness, they not only enable materials with advanced functionality, but are expected to be used as a reinforcing material that can reduce the weight of composite materials.
Latest issue of Shimadzu Journal, featuring Materials Science, has come out.
This issue focuses on Materials Science particularly on lithium-ion batteries (LiBs). It starts with two customer interviews in which users discuss their relationship with Shimadzu.
Hydrogen Energy Analysis Solutions for Quality Control of Hydrogen
Impurities in hydrogen production affect subsequent industrial processes. Strict purity standards have been defined for hydrogen used in fuel cells (ISO 14687-2019). This is because if hydrogen contains carbon monoxide, sulfur components, etc., the catalyst of the fuel cell will be damaged. The hydrogen fuel standard for FCVs (ISO 14687 TypeII GradeD) defines many items to be controlled, and Shimadzu analytical instruments can play a role in analyzing these items.
