custom solutions

The development team at Technology Design provide customised solutions for the most challenging applications. We offer specifically designed electronics for complete integration from Gantry systems to large and small custom sub-assemblies. Our project management is unsurpassed and allows you to be involved in every step of the process in order to produce the product you require to the highest standards.

Hardware – Our electronic platforms have the intelligence to apply multi-channel Phased array, ToFD and Pulse Echo with integrated positional encoding in two axis range of motion. We also offer an option of our own small format motor drive control that can be included with the card stack.

Software – Customers have the choice of utilising our own world-class TD-Scan software or their own using our interface that may be customised to your specification. We welcome your ideas and have software teams in place to implement additional features to our existing software offering.

Applications – Applications may be developed to inspect almost any type of material with various ultrasound techniques. This would include cast, forged and wrought alloys as well as composites, polymers and other materials. Your custom technique may require specialised hardware configurations that Technology Design has the ability to develop and implement. We will strive to meet or exceed the requirements with our modular solutions combined with our open architecture software options in order to give you the competitive edge and satisfy your customers.
