Flat Sound Tech
Crack detection technology

 Technology which makes use of high frequency ultrasonic sensors for the detection of cracks in ceramic floor and wall tiles. For effective quality control, the technology allows the inspection of all components when inserted into the production line.

Value Proposal

 This is a non-destructive method for analysing the integrity of materials and parts with the following characteristics:

  • application without contact with the part;
  • non-destructive technology;
  • applicable in ceramic materials, polymers and some types of metals.

Application Areas

 Ceramic, polymer and glass industry.
