Giving You a Scientific Solution to Your Business

APL was formed in 2008 to bring together the expertise of the various founders in order to commercialise a unique, novel and effective approach to detecting micron level flaws in High Voltage electrical cable. (see case study). Building on the previous fundamental research in earlier work done at Manchester University, Acuity has advanced the technology beyond recognition with three years of intensive development, both of software and mechanical devices, which has led to successfully implementation after proving trials of a first product at a major European cable-manufacturer.

The company moved its headquarters to Wales in 2012, from where it continues to grow support to the international cable-making community and to research and develop other applications within its scientific and mathematical expertise. Currently several major companies are trialling APL products, and devices have been sold to clients across Europe. Developments continue in sectors beyond electrical cables, including composite materials and non-metallic extrusions, where the core technology brings unique capabilities in the detection of flaws.

Gareth is responsible at Acuity for the Algorithm Designs that are at the heart of the high fidelity measurement systems.

Gareth's work experience is largely in advanced military system project work, with a common theme of extracting and analysing very low level wideband signals from high noise backgrounds.
