Remedying failure risks.
pd2m provides sensing systems for earliest possible and reliable detection of incipient damage and relevant fault conditions. Helping customers to avoid risks of painful downtime, harm to precious lives, valuable resources and the environment.


Detect how component parts fatigue, age, corrode, wear or degrade after impact – long before fault.

Stick and listen! No easier and faster way to capture broadband acoustic waves in solids. pd2m's Ultrasonic Strain Gauge is the world's lightest ultrasonic sensor and is fully flexible. We offer a range of clever measurement systems that lever the superior bandwidth and simple handling of this unique sensor design. Plug 'n play! No soldering!



Adverse hydrodynamics can unfold extreme kinetics that dramatically reduce operational life of fluid systems. CaviSense is the world's first sensor system to detect and quantify cavitation aggressivity in hydraulic components and sonication systems.

For CaviSense we offer a range of packagings suited to your requirements. The CaviSense system operates on pd2m's easily replaceable Ultrasonic Strain Gauges utilized as in-fluid pressure pick-up.


ABOUT US Our Company & Amazing Team

pd2m is an aspiring and interdisciplinary technology company with roots at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany. We are specialized in the development of measurement systems in the space of early damage or fault detection and non-destructive testing. With technological focus on the development and production of flexible thick-film piezo sensors and sensor materials, we primarily target highly-dynamic measurands like acoustic emissions or cavitation. Our interdisciplinary team has a strong footprint in electronic and mechanical engineering, mechatronics and information science and many years of experience in the domain of non-destructive testing and fault detection.
