Our mission to introduce the advanced ultrasonic techniques of Phased Array and ToFD to the mass market in NDT. For too long these powerful inspections tools have been too expensive, too hard to use and too out of reach to most inspection companies. We aim to introduce the techniques to the mass market by reducing the price of these advanced inspection systems whilst keeping the systems high quality with advanced features and design easier to use software.
