Ashtead Technology has issued an open invitation to anyone with an interest in Non-Destructive Testing to attend a free half-day event in Coventry that will provide an introduction to some of the latest NDT technologies.

Ashtead Technology NDT market manager Neil Harrap said: “The event has been designed for both experienced NDT practitioners wishing to learn about the latest technology, and staff that are relatively new to NDT. We anticipate most attendees coming from the aerospace, automotive, power generation, motorsports and academic sectors, but all are welcome to attend.”

The event will include product demonstrations and case studies for the new Eddyfi Ectane System; a high-performance surface array and multi-technology tube inspection system employing ultrasonic, eddy current and electromagnetic technology for the detection and assessment of flaws such as cracks or corrosion in conductive materials. The presentations will also cover other Advanced NDT technologies, with demonstrations of the following NDT methods:

•        Tube Testing

•        Eddy Current Array Testing

•        Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT)

•        Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD)

•        Ultrasonic Flaw Testing

•        Eddy Current Testing

The event will take place at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry on the 22nd July 2014 from 10am to 2pm. Complimentary lunch and refreshments will be provided and there will be an opportunity to take a tour of the MTC.  

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, please visit:  or call 0845 270 2707 or email
