How we manage your project
Each new transducer request is trated as a news
project which, according to the appropriate process, is based on
drawing up a set of specifications.
This process can be very rapid for standard transducers dedicated
to known applications, or more in depth for when the transducer
requires higher levels of fitness for use, as detailed below :
Design features and performance
The specifications could be a description of the
transducer in terms of characteristics and performance levels, or
it could describe a functional need for which IMASONIC contributes
to defining the appropriate transducer(s).
Conditions of use
The installation, use, maintenance and storage
conditions of the transducers can have a very large influence on
their performance and their useful life, for example, in difficult
These must therefore be taken into account in the design of the
transducers and form an integral part of the specifications.
Feasibility, validation, industrialization
The process of designing transducers also takes
- The need to establish feasibility:
Is it a new need ? Is the product feasible ? Can the desired performance
be achieved ?
- The need for validation of
the design: Can the product be guaranteed to meet the expectations
of the application? How will it evolve over time under operating
conditions? How can this be verified?
- The need for industrialisation:
Is the product intended to be reproduced, in what quantities and
with what requirements for reproducibility?
Confidence and confidentiality
In the exchanges necessary for designing products,
our customers may be required to communicate confidential information.
Imasonic is organized to fully protect the confidentiality
of the information received from customers, and to not disclose
it. We are also accustomed to formalizing this type of undertaking
through a confidentiality agreement when requested by the customer.
Imasonic stays informed and participates actively
in establishing standards that directly concern the design, manufacture
or characterization of ultrasonic transducers. We take full account
of the requirements of the standards the customer wishes to refer
On the level of the transducers, IMASONIC provides
assistance with making systems comply with different types of standards
according to the field of activity (explosive or dangerous environment,
halogen materials prohibited, etc)
Characterization reports, compliance certificates
Each transducer is identified by a unique serial
Each Imasonic transducer is supplied with a final control report
and a compliance certificate in the light of the agreed specifications.
This report also includes all the design features of the sensors
necessary for their use.
IMASONIC’s standard-offer transducers for
non-destructive testing are generally guaranteed for 12 months against
any defect in material or manufacture. The period can vary according
to the application and, in particular, the conditions of use.
Any expert assessment of a problem is reported in writing to the
