Current ultrasound arrays require a large amount of difficult manufacturing to produce 64-128 individual ultrasound imaging sensors in one probe. This leads to high sales prices and low-image quality.
Novosound improve on this by producing the world’s first fully printed ultrasound imaging array, which provides high resolution, flexibility and low-cost.
Our flexible, printed, imaging arrays can be used in
In the oil and gas industry, for example, Novosound’s new “fit-and-forget” sensors can be fixed along a pipeline to detect potential cracks and faults before they become critical; a problem that has been well-publicised recently for companies in the sector.
These sensors can operate at very high temperatures (above 250 °C) meaning that, in nuclear power stations and petrochemical refineries, crucial inspection of critical infrastructure can be carried out without the need to cool down pipes – a setback that currently costs the industry billions of dollars per year.
Novosound's sensors remove this problem by providing continuous monitoring, even above 250C
