Innerspec provides Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) solutions requiring high-power ultrasonic instrumentation, non-contact techniques, or customized integrations. The products developed by Innerspec include both integrated and portable systems that utilize non-contact EMAT (Electro Magnetic Acoustic Transducers), Dry-Coupled Piezoelectric and Eddy-Current transducers.
Since 1989, when Innerspec engineers designed a complete system for inspection of the booster rockets of the space shuttle, we can claim more first-of-a-kind NDT developments than any company in our industry. Innerspec pioneered commercial applications of Electro Magnetic Acoustic Transducers (EMAT) in the mid-90s becoming the world leader in this technology with hundreds of systems installed worldwide. More recently, we have added other techniques to our portfolio to serve our customers with all their advanced non-destructive testing needs.
Innerspec is headquartered in Forest, Virginia (USA) and Madrid (Spain) with an unmatched team of researchers, development engineers, customer support specialists and technicians dedicated to design and support our products and services. Our additional offices in Latin America, UK, and China along with representatives around the globe provide commercial and technical support with factory trained personnel.
Specifically in the world of Roll inspection, Innerspec was breaking ground with its first commercial system in 1996 and continuous development that include multiple roll inspection specific patents. For example, Innerspec patented the usage of creeping waves in UT roll surface inspection.
