When non-destructive testing equipment specialist Sonatest wanted to provide its
staff with training in advanced inspection techniques, it turned to TWI.
TWI Training and Examination Services delivered training covering phased array ultrasonic
testing (PAUT) and time-of-flight diffraction (ToFD) for the company’s sales and
technical support staff, to enhance and extend the breadth of their knowledge. This
will enable them to provide even better support to their customer base – particularly
important following the recent launch of Sonatest’s impressive VEO+ instrument.
The candidates first undertook 40 hours of online learning in PAUT, followed by
an intensive 40 hours of classroom-based practical, where they looked at weld, corrosion
and monolithic composite PAUT solutions.
TWI Training’s Advanced UT Lecturer Neil Harrap commented: ‘The candidates’ enthusiasm
throughout was commendable and I’m sure their service to Sonatest’s customers will
benefit from their improved understanding of these advanced methodologies.’
The new Veo+ has been added to TWI Training’s scope of instruments available for
PAUT and ToFD, BS EN ISO 9712 certification programme. This means both existing
and potential Sonatest customers can receive expert training and examinations using
