Unleash the digital potential of your flaw detector

In combination with InspectionWorks, the Krautkrämer USM 100 offers superior digital features such as cloud-based data and fleet management, remote calibration and the ability to be customized with apps available in the public and private stores. Thanks to its connectivity options, processes and reports can be streamlined and inspection data can more easily be accessed, shared and analyzed – resulting in greater testing transparency and ultimately in better product quality.

Data availability
  • Secure, cloud-based data management for immediate transfer, sharing and reporting of data
Remote calibration
  • Sending a device in for annual factory calibration means it won’t be available to you for up to 2 weeks. But with remote calibration it can be calibrated at your premises in an hour
Public store
  • Download apps or customize your own, and update your fleet anytime, anywhere
