|The Company, Acoustical Technologies Singapore
Pte Ltd (ATSPL), a specialist in ultrasonic technology and its
applications is Singapore’s only ultrasound technologies R and D
company. It was incorporated in Singapore in 1989. It is engaged in
the R and D, manufacturing and marketing of ultrasonic
nondestructive testing (NDT) equipment especially the scanning
acoustical microscope(SAM), a high-end NDT and failure analysis
The Company, Ultrasound International plc (UIPLC), a public limited
company was incorporated in UK recently. Then all the technologies
of ATSPL will be transferred over to the UK company. The purpose is
for fund rasing in UK. ATSPL will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of
|Our SAM is the world’s first dynamic 3D real-time
SAM which has numerous applications and a wide global market. It
uses high frequencies ultrasonic waves to totally image the external
and internal structures of an object in a nondestructive manner
,i.e. without dissecting the specimen, and on real-time 3D basis.
Electron and optical microscopes in the market generally look only
at the external surfaces/features of the object and in 2D. Images
captured by the company’a SAM can be saved and analyzed thereafter.
The product used mainly for quality control, failure analysis and
material studies has wide applications in the microelectronics like
examining chip packaging, wafers , precision engineering like
examining disk drives, material research like examining the grain
structures of materials, aerospace industries like in NDT,
automobile industries like in NDT, petrochemical industries like in
NDT and biotechnology sectors like examining cells, tissues and
their morphologies and pathologies. International patents have been
filed and granted for both the technology and product in USA, UK, Taiwan, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore. Sofar the
commercialization of the SAM has been completed. We have already
gone from the start-up stage to the second stage, the product stage
and we have already started marketing of SAM with the appointment of
|Besides the SAM, we have also developed the V(z)
curve scanner which is a spinoff from the SAM.. This can be used for
quantitative acoustic microscopy which can yield quantitative
informations on the elastic properties of materials such as the
Young’d modulus, the bulk modulus etc.
|We have also signed an agreement with an American
company Tessonics Inc to jointly develop the new generation of SAM,
the high frequencies biomedical SAM and to do the fabrication of
their acoustic lens and the design of the manufacturing process of
their SAM.. This biomedical SAM can be used for the characterization
of cancer cells and tissues and to study the pathology and
morphology of cancer cells and this will have even bigger market
potential. The high frequencies biomedical SAM will have higher
resolution which is necessary for biomedical application.
|Besides the SAM, we are also manufacturing the
ultrasonic cleaners which have wide industrial and medical
applications such as the cleaning of components, engines, spectacles.
jewelleries, medical devices etc.
We are also the distributors of other ultrasonic NDT equipment such
as flaw detectors, thickness gauges under OEM and distributors of
noise and vibration meters and the distributors of portable
ultrasound medical scanners.
We also derive our revenues by offering NDT services to clients and
laboratory medical ultrasound scanning to clients and offering
training courses on NDT courses to clients.
|MISSION OF COMPANY
|The mission of our company is to develop ultrasound
technologies to save the lives of millions of people through NDT to
apply to aerospace industries, to railway tracks, to shipbuilding
industries and to oil and gas industries and through biomedical
applications to be developed in the areas of diagnostics and
|VISION OF COMPANY
|The vision of our company is to be the world’s
foremost ultrasound technologies company in the areas of acoustic
imaging for industrial and medical applications.
