Advanced non-destructive testing technologies relevant to the aerospace sector will be discussed and demonstrated during three days of events involving TWI next month.
The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) West of England Branch has organised two back-to-back events for the aerospace sector: the Emerging Technologies for Aerospace workshop on 12 April, followed by the branch’s biennial Aerospace Event on 13–14 April. Both events will take place at the BAWA Centre in Bristol.
The workshop 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.
The subsequent 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.
TWI Training and Examinations will also be present at the event, with a stand at which delegates can find out about development opportunities available for personnel in the aerospace sector.
