Accurate and Timesaving

Replaces the Woodpecker WP-632

The Woodpecker WP-632AM combines both the WP-623 Handpiece and WP-632M Monitor into one unit making it a more powerful tool than previous models. Traditionally, coin tapping has been used to detect disbonds on structurally bonded materials, but this difficult, nonquantitative method is made obsolete by the WP-632AM portable electric tap tester. This tester is compact and lightweight, allowing single handed operation and significantly reducing time required for inspection with high accuracy. The WP-632AM utilizes a CPU which comparatively evaluates the output of a force sensor attached to the actuator. The results are indicated with LEDs & numerical values displayed on the LCD screen, clearly showing the set and measured contact times (in milliseconds) and making it easier to setup on the test standard. Data can be saved or transferred to a PC for traceability and detailed analysis.



Optional XY Plotter

The XY Plotter is available as an option for the Woodpecker WP-632AM Handpiece. It allows the user to measure contact time (in milliseconds) of the structure being tested and displays the position of the unit on a PC (as a color tile map or numerically) if used in real time. This record can be saved and printed creating traceability of a scan.


  • Detection of disbond / damage / moisture in honeycomb sandwich materials
  • Detection of disbond in composite materials, tiles, clad steel, coatings, etc.
  • Detection of disbond of joints in composite structures, e.g. helicopter blades
  • Location of beams / ribs / spar in bonded structures
  • Detection of boundries between different materials
  • Detection of dryness / aging / hardening of bonding agents, etc.
  • Comparison & evaluation of surface hardness (elasticity) of various plates
  • Detection of the unfilled area within foamed sandwich panels
