In 2004, a new inspection technology, Sampling Phased Array, was developed at Fraunhofer IZfP that expands conventional phased array technology in terms of system and testing technology. I-Deal Technologies researchers were the co-inventors of this innovative technology, demonstrating their technological leadership. In 2009 I-Deal was founded and now employs 7 persons. I-Deal Technologies utilize the latest scientific developments in ultrasonic testing and offers customers rapid testing solutions for lightweight components (CFCs, thermoplastic) as well as for metal components with 3-D imaging and automatic image analysis. This allows significantly better flaw detection at fast test speeds, and thus offers substantial cost advantages.
