Abstract: In a nondestructive testing system, a preamplifier is connected to a piezoelectric element and is tuned to optimize the amplitude of a signal input to the piezoelectric element and the shape of a response signal. A receiver amplifier couples the signal received from the piezoelectric element to an ultrasound system.

Abstract: A cart for supporting and transporting spools of wire in a stable manner comprises a base having a wire spool supporting frame and wheels thereon, the base having a first section and a second section with the first section being located forward of the second section when the base is in use; a plurality of wire spool supporting arms on the frame; and a second plurality of wire spool supporting arms mounted on the frame at a location that is between the first plurality of wire supporting arms and the base and which is located closer to the second section of the base than to the first section of the base.
Abstract: A mounting unit is mounted to the frame cross member of a vehicle. The mounting unit includes a bottom unit which is bolted to the frame cross member and a top unit which is bolted to the transmission/transfer case adapter. The top and bottom units are bolted to one another. The mounting unit allows the motor, transmission, and transfer case to move freely with respect to each other during hard use conditions, including extreme four-wheeling, without damaging the mounting unit.
