“We have engineered hundreds of different [ultrasonic] designs for all types of customers and applications – from laboratory prototypes to volume manufacturing. We bring a lot more to the equation than building devices. We help people determine their requirements, counseling on what power to use and how to incorporate imaging. One of the reasons we are successful is that we don’t just give customers what they ask for — we iterate together until we get to what they need.”
