The current development of systems of pulse-echo ultrasonic testing systems is conditioned by the increasing of inspection results reliability. The application of Synthetic Aperture Focusing Technique (SAFT) is one of the solutions to this problem. The implementation of the post-processing algorithms based on SAFT strongly depends on the conditions of the ultrasonic scanning. In this paper, the issues related to SAFT implementation in the case of ultrasonic inspection of welds are considered. As a result, the post-processing algorithm, which takes into account the main features of such objects inspection, is proposed. The capabilities of the suggested algorithm were verified via the computer simulations. It was determined that the suggested algorithm is able to provide accurate and precise imageries of the flaws located in the weld.
