Who we are

We are an innovative and approachable team of engineers and industry experts.

In 2011 Dr. Chenghuan Zhong, Prof Paul Wilcox and Prof Anthony Croxford at the Ultrasonics and Non-Destructive Testing group at the University of Bristol set out develop a system that could eliminate the human error from ultrasonic non-destructive testing. The Wireless And Non-Destructive (WAND) system was developed and in 2015 Inductosense was formed to commercialise the technology. Since then the company has launched a range of products, achieved necessary certifications (eg ISO, ATEX, IECEx), grown the team, and now has sensors deployed globally across a range of applications.

Our Vision

We are aiming to enable digitisation of non-destructive testing using wireless battery-free sensors, different data collection methods and software for remote analysis. Our vision is to have sensors deployed in volumes across assets reducing costs and time associated with conventional ways of taking measurements and to enable customers to make proactive decisions about maintenance.

Our People

We are an innovative and approachable team of engineers and industry experts. Our core strength is in ultrasonic non-destructive testing and the development of sensors and systems.
