Founded in 1995, Advanced Material Solutions (AMS) specializes in safe, high-speed, high-volume detection of structural flaws within manufacturing components and equipment, to prevent defective parts from entering assembly operations. Newly updated inspection processes now include SmartTest, a system that’s being called the most advanced acoustic resonance inspection technology available.

AMS has inspected tens of millions of components using ultrasonic, acoustic resonance, and electromagnetic testing, as well as a combination of these methods. They’ve also performed visual inspections, product sorting, product reworks, parts cleaning, and packing. With the introduction of their newest technology SmartTest, AMS helps parts and equipment manufactures resolve a list of potential problems with product quality that can cost time, money, and even valuable business.
The most common concerns among industrial manufacturing companies are the potential for compromised product to either enter their system, or their clients’ products.
Other concerns include frustrations associated with inadequate defect detection processes, false reject rates, and the high cost of traditional inspection systems that include visual, magnetic particle, penetrant and x-ray. Poor and unreliable outcomes associated with these processes lead to unnecessary downtime and an extra burden on budgets.
SmartTest technology identifies more failure modes. It is equipped with bandwidth to 95 kilohertz to identify more resonant peaks and enhance defect detection by revealing failure modes that can filter past a lesser bandwidth.
This level of detection delivers resolution of up to 89k spectral lines to provide the most accurate waveform available. The result is detection of the smallest flaws and the elimination of false peaks and false rejects.
AMS SmartTest systems feature ‘positive capture sensing,’ a closed-loop solution that ensures rejected parts, can’t escape into the production line.
A customer in the automotive and consumer parts sector says “SmartTest has improved every aspect of acoustic resonance inspection – speed, signal, quality, ease of use, and reliability. Excellent system.”
AMS remains a leader in comprehensive and detailed testing of safety-critical automotive and transportation components, defense contractor materials, medical device components, and firearms parts, among others. With the benefits of the SmartTest technology, clients can optimize time, resources, and budgets and position themselves as reliable producers of quality components.
