DolphiTech and Sonatest announce distribution agreement


DolphiTech has announced a global distribution agreement with Sonatest. Sonatest will market a specially-branded version of DolphiTech’s ultrasound inspection camera named SonaCam.

The SonaCam is a mobile and ergonomic ultrasound camera system designed for NDT inspection of carbon fibre-reinforced plastics (CFRP). A unique dry and wet transducer technology with high-performance signalling electronics creates high-resolution 2D and 3D images of suspected damage areas to verify the status of a material and helps manufacturing and service personnel to perform effective quality assurance and to develop the best repair strategy for damage.

“Sonatest sees the DolphiCam technology and products as a great supplement to our existing product line,” said Ron Sidney, Global Sales Director at Sonatest. “Combined with our state-of-the-art phased array products we now have the SonaCam, which not only complements but offers new and exciting inspection solutions for composites. We see a huge potential for the SonaCam and are keen to present this innovative technology to our customers.”

“The NDT business is changing and there is a huge interest in matrix transducers with easy-to-use ultrasound cameras that even non-experts can use. We are excited about the partner agreement with Sonatest as they are ultrasound experts and have an impressive presence in the global NDT market. This is a great opportunity for DolphiTech,” said Jan Olav Endrerud, CEO of DolphiTech.
