Precision Acoustics manufactures acoustic measurement products for medical and NDT industries.
Based in the southwest of England in Dorchester, Precision Acoustics is owned by its Managing Director and three of the Research Scientists. The company was established in its present form in 1997 and is well established as a major supplier of equipment for the MHz ultrasound markets on a worldwide basis.
Precision Acoustics has a close working relationship with the acoustics group of the National Physical Laboratory, London, and academic establishments to further ultrasound research.
Products & Services
Ultrasound development services
We have the expertise to solve many of the problems associated with ultrasound transducers operating in the frequency range of 0.5 MHz to 20 MHz.
Whether it is assistance with the development of a new ultrasound transducer for medical or NDT applications or problem-solving an existing design our engineers apply science to the issues to ensure that all aspects of the transducer’s performance are well understood.
This approach has enabled some of our customers to solve problems that have existed for many years. If appropriate we can hold a seminar on customers premises to meet with the engineers and address a wide variety of issues in the most cost-effective way.

Acoustic output measurements
We offer access to a full range of acoustic measurement services for medical and non medical ultrasound transducers.
The accurate characterisation of temporal and spatial parameters of a medical ultrasonic field is important for safety reasons. Using our fully automated test tanks, Precision Acoustics can measure the parameters required by international safety standards and regulatory organisations in the frequency range 0.5 MHz to 20 MHz.
Non medical products often require characterisation so that beam profiles and bandwidths can be quantified. Precision Acoustics can undertake measurements according to the relevant international standards to assess the beam profile and calculate the beam width for non-destructive testing transducers.
We also have the capability to characterise the acoustic properties of a wide range of fluids, gels and solid materials in the frequency range 0.5 MHz to 10 MHz.
