Everything Eddy Current


About Us

ETher NDE is the one-stop shop for all things to do with Eddy Current NDT Equipment and Probes.

2019 marked the tenth anniversary of ETher NDE’s formation. As a result of growth and facility expansion, we are now based in St. Albans, Hertfordshire (UK), where ETher NDE has gone from strength to strength and is now firmly established as a leading manufacturer and supplier of Eddy Current NDT equipment to the global NDT market.

We started with a very strong expertise base in Eddy current technologies as many of the ETher NDE team members worked together previously as part of Hocking NDT and collectively we have over 150 years of non-destructive testing experience.

Our personnel understand that the Eddy Current NDT market is very specialised so we strive to give our customers the highest level of Eddy Current expertise. So, if are looking for clear answers from knowledgeable, down-to-earth Eddy Current NDT specialists then ETher NDE is the company for you.

ETher NDE was founded on three core principles which are:

  1. The ability to speak to someone who understands our product, the industry, and your applications
  2. Industry-leading delivery on equipment and probes and the ability to respond to your challenges
  3. That our products are second to none in both performance and quality

Our products are used by many of the world’s top tier companies and standard-setting organisations; our teams are focussed to meet our customer’s inspection needs and value on-time delivery, be it for our standard products and services, or our bespoke design and solutions for the most challenging and advanced applications. Since formation Ether NDE have delivered thousands of NDT instruments across 80 countries.

As a result of the knowledge and expertise held within ETher NDE, our in-house R&D team also work on various research-funded programmes to develop solutions to unique or “unchartered” inspection challenges. For example, recently ETher NDE was selected for Horizon 2020 funding from the EU under PRECISE - Pulsed Eddy Current Inspection Systems for Pipeline Health Monitoring. We were very proud to qualify for this funding, being very competitive, with only a couple of thousand being successful out of over 30,000 applicants.
