In response to the increase in demand for advanced non-destructive testing solutions, Sonatest Ltd have created a new centre of excellence, with a dedicated team to support this growing sector and strengthen it's position within the advanced NDT product market. The development of the new Application Centre for Advanced Products and Projects has taken place in order to provide high levels of technical support to the end user and their specific applications, from consultancy to post sales stage.
Highly skilled, specialist engineers have been recruited to focus their time and resources on customers who require advanced NDT solutions and their specific applications. With a skill-set covering phased array expertise, mechanical, transducer and electronic design, together with software development the ACAPP team are able to fully investigate and support all advanced application demands, providing bespoke solutions where required.
Products that are supported by the ACAPP group include the Harfang X-32 and other phased array products, the Sonatest NDTS Rapidscan2, Rapidscan-3d and the SFD-100 Systems Flaw Detector. At this level these technologies require significant technical support throughout the sales process; often requiring proof of application suitability, involving testing and reporting, NDT effectiveness and system integration. Bespoke transducer development and instrumentation customization are also supported. Some of this work will be carried out in the new facility of testing laboratories within Sonatest Ltd. Particular areas of expertise include composite inspection and on-line high speed scanning.
Additionally the specialists within the ACAPP group have strong proven records within their fields and are able to assist in developing procedures for product approval, integrating systems into end-user's workflows, training users and working on data analysis.
Sonatest Ltd believe this investment in advanced product expertise and development will ensure that they continue to offer high standards of support and exceed customer expectations.
