It is often said, with some justification, that making an ultrasonic probe isn't difficult and doesn't need much investment in terms of capital equipment. However, what is difficult and costly is to make the same probe that consistently complies with international specifications at an economic price.

This presentation is to show what manufacturing and testing processes GB Inspection Systems Ltd have recently introduced to ensure all probes that leave the factory meet the necessary specifications and also customers’ expectations.
