Smart Test™ Pro

SmartTest™ PRO is the perfect choice for testing powder
metal / MIM, cast, forged, machined, stamped, and other types of components.

SmartTest™ – with industry leading bandwidth, resolution, and signal quality is quickly becoming the standard for high speed, high volume inspection of components that are safety critical or critical to quality.

The SmartTest™ Principle

The principle behind SmartTest™ is simple. Every part has a unique resonant signature or pattern that reflects its composition. Any deviation from the expected resonant signature indicates the presence of structural inconsistencies commonly due to flaws or mechanical variations.

The easy-to-use ST-PRO system can detect inconsistencies, imperfections or flaws such as cracks, missing features and mixed parts. It can also detect if processes have been missed, such as a machining or heat treating operation.


  • High volume turnkey system – 100% inspection on the factory floor
  • SmartTest™ ARS – the most advanced flaw detection available anywhere
  • SmartTest™ analyzer – ultra fast cycle times, highest resolution in the industry
  • SmartTest™ impact actuator – nearly infinite life, zero maintenance
  • Automated reject containment – 100% ‘positive capture’
  • Soft HMI – never open a ladder diagram
  • Productivity utilities – speed adjustment, eliminate errors


  • Whole body test detects both internal and external flaws
  • Detects material property issues, e.g. hardness, residual stress
  • Fast and acturate – typically 1-2 seconds per part
  • No part preparation or cleanup required
  • Any rigid component can be tested
  • Can be fully automated
  • Can be configured for ‘inline’ or ‘offline’ use



  • For parts to around 20 Kg
  • Belt width 12 inches
  • Belt length 8 feet

Heavy Duty:

  • For parts to 35 Kg or more
  • Belt width 24 inches
  • Belt length 8 feet

Alternate conveyor configurations to suit any component size and shape are available

Compatible with infeed and outfeed systems to achieve 100% automated inspection

Dual monitor setup with soft HMI

Detectable flaw types

  • Material variances – hardness, density, grain structure, residual, stress, oxides, decarb
  • Cracks, chipped gear teeth, missing material, voids
  • Brazing variances, poor bonding
  • Low nodularity, cold shuts, porosity, short fills, missing features
  • Dimensional issues, mixing of parts
  • Double strikes, laps, tears, delamination, hot shorts
