Abstract: This paper presents the design of control system of NDT scanner. With special structure and control method, this scanner can carry PAUT and TOFD sensors and move outer the steel heating pipe in all positions, follow the white track to check the weld line. This scanner is product of project “Studying, designing and manufacturing industry scan system integrated with PAUT and TOFD” of Dr. Tran Ngoc Thanh, being completed in 2016.
