Results from 50 Pipe Testing at PRCI Reveal Exceptional Performance by 5th Generation HSD Tester

Waltham MA - January 2018

Massachusetts Materials Technology (MMT) is a growing start-up now completing the early-stage commercialization of our patented mechanical test instruments. Our mission is to develop innovative, nondestructive technologies to utilize in field services that will provide our customers with accurate and reliable information about the structural integrity, material strength, and toughness of their assets. 

MMT 2018 Newsletter Highlighting our New Location

"The SBIR Targeted Technologies (START) program helps growing Massachusetts-based companies commercialize technologies developed under SBIR and STTR contracts. The START program plays an important role in powering Massachusetts' Innovation Economy." 

MMT was founded in 2014 by a group of engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The group is currently commercializing a revolutionary new method for material verification through frictional sliding that was initiated by the CEO, Dr. Simon Bellemare during his PhD at MIT.

MMT's new headquarters is triple the square footage of our previous location. The new facility includes a full lab for testing, a shop for manufacturing, and office space for expanding the size of our team. With the increased resources, we can handle bigger projects and meet a wider range of testing demands. 

MMT Developments



The Hardness, Strength, and Ductility (HSD) Tester accurately measures the yield strength and identifies the longitudinal welded seam type of pipelines.

The Nondestructive Toughness Tester (NDTT) is an emerging technology that measures fracture toughness of ductile metals which can be used to calculate maximum allowable flaw size.
