Rental Systems

Unicorn are one of the leading manufacturers of high speed ultrasonic rotary probe units; normally these test heads together with the associated electronic processing units are only available for purchase. At the moment Unicorn are able to offer three of their standard rotary head systems on very favorable rental terms to interested tube manufacturers. If the tube manufacturers can supply the tube handling system i.e. conveyors pinch stands, throw off's together with control and a water supply, Unicorn can supply the rest of the equipment necessary to provide a fully automated high speed ultrasonic test line.
