Ms. Chris Rishel, Quality Manager – 10 years of experience in quality management with Corning, Inc. 6 years of experience in quality management at Blatek. Engineering Our highly skilled staff of 14 Scientists, Engineers and Technicians have many years of experience in all disciplines of transducer design and fabrication. We utilize SolidWorks 3D and AutoCad 2D design software for all of our design tasks. Our R & D staff has full in-house acoustic modeling capabilities. Overview of Abilities Our family of top quality, custom piezocomposites is the result of many years of acoustic and materials development. Our primary focus is the development and manufacture of high frequency medical transducers. We are the industry leader in the high frequency Ophthalmic market in the 10MHz to 50MHz range. Overview of Abilities Our composite array technology is pushing the envelope of conventional imaging by providing high element count and fine pitch arrays in the 10MHz to 20MHz range. Our extensive experience with the fabrication of high element count arrays has allowed us to develop processes that enable our skilled production staff to consistently terminate thousands of element interconnects. We are the partner of choice for many emerging technology companies worldwide.
