TOFD Caliper


A compact, lightweight, user friendly single-axis scanner, the TOFD Caliper is the perfect tool to provide a quick and simple, manual weld inspection. It is very easy to setup with the probe separation being adjusted from a single thumb screw.


The TOFD Caliper operates in any orientation on surfaces from 3” NPS up to flat plate and is suitable for inspecting welds on pipework, pressure vessels, storage tanks and structural components.


Compatible with our full range of TOFD transducers and wedges, the TOFD Caliper frame allows the wedges to be easily clipped into the arms so that interchanging a wedge takes seconds.


TOFD Wedges can be plastic, brass, or stainless steel and are available at 45°, 60° and 70° as standard. The TOFD Caliper includes a high resolution, waterproof wheel encoder that can operate with any manufacturer’s instrumentation.


Often used as the ideal training tool, the TOFD Caliper is suitable for use by inspectors of any level due to its simplicity, reliability and quick wedge interchange.
