Discover training opportunities for the aerospace sector at industry event next month

Training in advanced non-destructive testing technologies relevant to the aerospace sector will be showcased at a two-day event in April in Bristol, UK.

The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) West of England Branch is holding its biennial Aerospace Event on 13–14 April, and TWI Training and Examinations will be on-hand to discuss training opportunities for personnel working in the industry.

Taking place at the BAWA Centre in Bristol, the Aerospace Event will feature presentations from speakers across industry. Among them will be TWI Technology Fellow Ian Cooper and the manager of TWI’s Port Talbot facility, Phil Wallace. Between them they will deliver three presentations, covering an update on the second phase of the IntACom project, probability-of-detection tools and structural integrity services at TWI.

The two-day event immediately follows the BINDT West of England Branch Emerging Technologies for Aerospace workshop, taking place on 12 April. This will focus on emerging NDT technologies that could benefit the aerospace industry, with a particular emphasis on structural health monitoring tools that can track the integrity of aircraft during flight.

TWI will be demonstrating its full matrix capture technology, an enhanced ultrasonic inspection system that allows for the collection of the full time domain signal from every possible transmit/receive combination of a phased array transducer. The system has been in development at TWI for several years and is now ready for commercial uptake.
