Bringing the First Industrial Acoustic Imager to Market

by John Perik / July 7, 2021

“If you’re not first, you’re last” - The famous words of fictional race car driver Ricky Bobby couldn’t be more accurate than they are today when it comes to technology. And when speed to market is essential, the product development process must be as efficient as possible. That’s why when Fluke set out to bring a novel, first-of-its-kind industrial sensing solution to market, they turned to Benchmark and our outstanding engineering team in Almelo, The Netherlands.

As the leader in electronic tools and applications for the industrial sector, Fluke is always at the forefront of innovation. In the case of the ii900 Sonic Industrial Acoustic Imager, its ruggedized industrial acoustic leak detector, there had been nothing like it that could be manufactured at scale. It was critical for Fluke’s customers to get their hands on this type of technology because it would drastically improve safety for workers within an industrial facility. Fluke leveraged its long-time partner, Benchmark, to meet this demand and get the ii900 to market before its competitors.

To learn how Fluke and Benchmark went from prototype to a high-quality sensing solution manufactured at scale in less than a year, check out the full case study.
