Novosound launch new products set to disrupt the industrial testing market
Scottish technology start-up Novosound launched its range of revolutionary non-destructive testing (NDT) products last week in an exclusive online live event.
The North Lanarkshire-based business says it is providing a technological breakthrough that will dramatically evolve how industry inspections take place.
Novosound’s products, which have all been developed and produced in Scotland, can solve the issues facing the NDT market, it says.
Current testing technology is hindered by poor signal conduction with sensors unable to fit curved surfaces or unusual geometries and has an inability to work at high temperatures.
The industry has faced difficulties in manufacturing reliable high-resolution ultrasound probes at scale from ceramics and polymers.
In launching its three new products, all named after Celtic legends – the Kelpie, Belenus and Nebula – Novosound aims to disrupt the way the NDT market operates across the likes of the oil and gas, renewables, energy and aerospace sectors, potentially saving companies millions of dollars in downtime.
Novosound founding director and chief technology officer Dr Dave Hughes said:
The technology we have developed is the dawning of a new era of NTD, saving organisations time and money, as well as improving safety.
When the the COVID-19 pandemic struck, we looked at how we could take all the learnings from taking our prototypes to global trade shows and encapsulate this into these new products.
Today is not just an exciting day for Novosound, its a proud moment being able to bring our two years of research and development to the marketplace, and we genuinely feel our range of products can change the way businesses carry out their testingDr Dave Hughes, Novosound founder and CTO.
