Talon Test Laboratories - Camarillo, California
Talon Test Labs Camarillo shares a 35,000 sq ft business park unit in Camarillo, California with it's parent company, Structural Diagnostics, Inc. This close relationship with SDI is mutually beneficial in many ways. Talon Camarillo benefits from having the equipment manufacturer on-site because they can have existing equipment modified, or whole new systems built, if needed to accept or complete a job.
They also benefit from having the service team and spare parts under the same roof as them, which allows for immediate repair work if necessary. On the other hand, SDI benefits from being able to get direct feedback from the end user, as well as having working systems on hand for training or troubleshooting.
There are currently four working Ultrasonic Testing systems at the Camarillo location ( three immersion tanks, and one large gantry), and SDI is able to provide Talon with any UT system that would be needed to complete a job, provided a long term commitment is agreed upon. Talon Camarillo currently has approvals from Bombardier, Caterpillar, NADCAP, and SpaceX.
