We're an MIT spinoff providing portable,
non-destructive metal strength testing
and seam identification services.
MMT presented our HSD technology to the pipeline integrity industry at PPIM. See MMT's paper here.
MMT begins testing with the most recent HSD prototype, including the new 4th generation, three-stylus core. This system is ready for R&D diagnostic trials, as well as pilot studies. Please contact us to discuss a visit.
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.

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.
Further research and development showed significant increases in precision and accuracy with the addition of a second stylus. Our team is investigating the benefit of a third stylus.
MMT was awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research Program for the commercial development of our HSD Technology by the National Science Foundation. With the continued support of our customers, MMT may be eligible for a Phase II advancement by the end of 2016.
Our research and development team successfully implemented the first proof of concept test using the Non-Destructive Toughness Tester (NDTT) Technology.
