We Solve Problems

Businesses contact us when they’re:
  • Concerned with faulty components proceeding to the product assembly stage or, worse yet, reaching their customers
  • Irritated by the high cost of visual, X-ray, Penetrant, Magnetic Particle, and related inspection techniques
  • Unhappy with high reject rates and insufficient defect detection in current inspections
  • Frustrated by the suboptimal productivity and system downtime from existing inspection systems
Our award-winning SmartTest™ product line addresses these specific concerns. Do you share any of the above pain points? Let’s have a conversation.

Applications and Use Cases of Acoustic Resonance Inspection

Critical industries rely on acoustic resonance inspection as a highly accurate NDT option for high-speed, high-volume detection of structural flaws in critical components. Our SmartTest™ system serves the following applications and industries, which you can learn more about here:
  • Sintered Metal
  • Ductile Iron
  • Automotive
  • Specialty Vehicles
  • Firearms
  • Medical Devices
  • Consumer Products
  • Casting
  • Machining
  • Stamping / Forging
Acoustic resonance-based techniques are commonly used as an applied NDT tool in the manufacture of numerous types of parts.
