Standard transducers allow numerous inspections with good results. However,  industrial situations and performance needs often require transducers that are custom engineered which take into account the constraints of the applications.

Imasonic transducers are based on an extremely wide combination range of specifications. Some of these possibilities are summarized above

Our different products lines (immersion, contact, phased arrays, or special probes), and application examples (Aerospace, Nuclear, In line testing...) give more details about these combination possibilities, and the applications that could get benefit of this technology.
