ScanBuddy was born from our time spent in the field using existing the non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment available at the time and finding products difficult to use in real-world situations. We decided to manufacture our own solutions to multiple problems in NDT, condition monitoring and Profilometry.
We are of the opinion that if the equipment is easy to use and simple to set up, thus making the job easy to do, a better quality of results will be generated by the technician.
ScanBuddy designs, manufactures and commissions Non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment and accessories used by the industry to evaluate the condition of structures or plant. This is all done without causing damage to the original part. All scanners and equipment are manufactured in New Zealand to the highest quality achievable.
If wear or damage is identified in time, components can be replaced in a timely fashion. By performing regular inspections, users can identify wear rates and therefore plan for refurbishment or maintenance, thus avoiding unnecessary losses in production.
Our team at Scanbuddy bring a combined total of 50+ years in the Non-destructive testing (NDT) industry. We offer client product support and also offer product training and support. We also offer to consult on problematic issues clients may have including third-party verification on client sites.
