Re: NDT Equipment Selection
Sir,

I am curious, how does a company that appears to know nothing about radiography (or NDT in general) manage to land a contract to perform such?

I urge you to visit www.brighttechnical.com to review our services. We provide consulting services to companies such as yours and will be happy to provide answers to your questions for a fee.
