For the same reason a dual-stylus HSD core was an improvement over single-stylus core, our analysis team felt confident that the addition of a third stylus would relibably provide the level of accuracy demanded by our customers. By using three unique stylus geometries, the HSD Tester can capture many different material signatures during a single test. Read more about it here.

First New Build Incorporating 4th Gen HSD Core

  Cambridge  -  April 2016

Our research and development team successfully implemented the first proof of concept test using the Non-Destructive Toughness Tester (NDTT) Technology.

We're an MIT spinoff providing portable,

non-destructive metal strength testing

and seam identification services.

"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".  Click here for the press release.

The newest version of the HSD Tester has four styluses, providing for excellent accuracy in yield strength and ulitmate tensile strength measurements.  This more compact design has been in use at three pipeline operators since its launch.

NDTT: Proof of Concept Success
