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
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.
