Re: Wanted NDT Equipment and consummable from China
Dear Sir,

Having just gone through a massive purchase of NDT equipment I can give you some thoughts.

Generally the equipment from China is more costly than getting equipment from other countries and is not shall we say mainstream brand equipment. The internet is a handy tool for buying NDT equipment as you can get prices from all over the world. I would personally recommend:
a) Gammatec in South Africa gammatec@mweb.co.za
b) NDT Supply in USA http://www.ndtsupply.com/categories/xray.htmand
c) NDT Direct in USA
d) Russell NDE in Canada http://www.russelltech.com/

You can get reconditioned techop 660's at reasonable prices and much cheaper for gammamats.

If you want to compare the prices listed below is some Chinese sites I visited and got prices from.

http://www.ndtinfo.net/hichina2/maoji/maojiindex.html This site lists the majority of NDT retailers in Mainland China by city.

http://www.dltonghai.com/ another supplier of equipment

http://www.ndtinfo.net/hichina2/index.html China NDT homepage

Another thing to bear in mind is a lot of the equipment isn't actually made in China so you are paying a premium for equipment made overseas anyway.

I hope this is of some help. If I can be of any assistance please feel free to contact me at my email address.


Kindest Regards


Michael Trinidad

Re: Wanted NDT Equipment and consummable from China
Interesting Topic.
I have been travelling back and forth to China since 1986. I worked in China for 3 1/2 years as QA Manager and NDE Level III for a large Joint Venture. I am familar with many brands of Chinese NDE equipment. I have attended several Chinese NDE exhibitions and Conferences and have visited a Chinese factory that makes all sorts of NDE equipment.
In 1987 I purchased a portable UT scope for $2500 USD. I figured it would be a disposable machine. When it broke I would throw it away. That machine has been used and abused and is still operating today.
At the same time we also purchased several digital UT thickness gauges. We were not so lucky with these. These have long since been discarded.
Unless pricing has changed significantly recently, I found Chinese pricing extremely attractive. Getting spare parts and servicing outside of China was my biggest concern.
I would be pleased to share info privately.

One of the most interesting machines I came accross was a UT set sold by one of the companies that actually had a TV set in it! I guess it would sell like hotcakes next month during the world cup!
