Incorporated in 1980, TSI is a high-technology company displaying steady growth over the last decade, establishing itself as one of the few Canadian-based companies in its competitive fields. TSI currently operates in a fully staffed and equipped facility that includes laboratories, offices, a machine shop, and a testing area.
TSI performs research, development and manufacturing in the areas of:
automated non-destructive examination (NDE)
robotic welding and vision
transducers and sensors
TSI has also recently taken on the product distribution of several measuring instruments such as StressTel Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges, Raytek Infrared thermometers, Automation USA AuaNix Coating Thickness Gauges and various other instruments including Electromagnetic Testing products. TSI's products and systems are sold worldwide: in North America, throughout Europe, the Pacific Rim countries, mid-Asia and Australia.
TSI's forte is the development and manufacture of customized turnkey system solutions for the fields mentioned above. From the relatively straight-forward creation of automotive robotic welding systems to the development of customized NDT systems for NASA materials and biomedical research, TSI has excelled in systems that combine state-of-the-art technological innovation with quality engineering. For example, TSI's NDT systems are being used to inspect welds in steam generators, for remote inspection of turbines, for research into aerospace composite materials, to detect laminations and flaws in metallic alloy bars, to inspect aluminum aircraft wings for cracks, for the inspection of truck tires for leaks and separations and for the real time inspection of extruded stainless steel pipes. Through these examples, TSI's creativity, diversity and skill in designing systems to match unique applications can be seen. Our inspection techniques include ultrasonic, Eddy Current and X-ray.
Through contract R&D and systems development work, TSI has also spun off a number of it's own products (e.g. Doppler Bubble Monitor), product lines (custom transducers) and relatively standardized systems that we customize to the application (Aufis/Aura, Ultrasonic Ranger, inspection tanks). We have developed EMAT technology for a variety of applications.
A new company, TSI Technologies Inc., has been incorporated to focus on biomedical products.
In the summer of 1991, TSI opened a daughter company in the city of Bruno, located in the Czech Republic.
That company, TSI System specializes in NDT systems, sensors and markets several North American instruments in Europe.
