New, patent-pending trueDGS technology from the


Inspection Technologies business of GE Measurement &
Control Solutions has allowed the company to develop
and introduce a range of ultrasonic trueDGS angle beam
probes which:

trueDGS angle beam probes feature innovative,


mathematically-determined surface contours. This shape
is calculated by using a given circular, straight beam
probe and transferring the properties of all sound beams
of this probe to an angle beam probe with a given angle of
incidence and a given delay line length. The resulting point
