Increased demand for Applied Acoustics’ products has necessitated the installation of a further calibration tank at its Great Yarmouth facility, the company reported. The new tank will enable production schedules to keep pace with additional customer requirements for advanced subsea acoustic positioning products that are calibrated prior to shipment to check acoustic integrity.
U.K. Sales Advisor Julian Rickards commented, “As standard procedure we undertake a set of rigorous performance checks including a full hemisphere test to confirm all acoustic products meet specification at multiple angles and across a range of frequency channels, so the new tank will enable us to satisfy this increased customer demand efficiently whilst maintaining stock levels.”
“The meticulous checks eliminate the possibility of even slight ‘blind spots’ during subsea operations, and give the users complete confidence in system performance,” he added.
Applied Acoustics said sales growth that has taken place in existing markets, new geographical regions and applications, has not only required extra testing and production facilities but also an increase in personnel, up more than 10% from last year.
