The week of the 8th September saw the BINDT NDT 2014 Conference and Exhibition head to the Palace Hotel in ManchesterImaginos NDE3, Harpenden, United Kingdom
For ETher NDE, Baugh & Weedon and Imaginos NDE it has marked the start of a very busy autumn exhibition schedule, which includes multiple trips to the USA and Europe for various NDT and industry specific shows including Innotrans (Berlin), ECNDT (Prague) and ASNT Fall 2014 (USA).
At NDT 2014 all three companies were positioned next to each other. This was a beneficial layout as it meant that potential clients were easily able to understand the relationship between the three companies and appreciate that they are growing into a collection of NDT focused businesses that really can offer them the application solutions they will need in NDT.
ETher NDE used the show as an opportunity to formally launch the AeroCheck+. Although it has been available for some weeks now, NDT 2014 was its first outing into the exhibition arena. Its dual frequency, conductivity measurement capabilities and how to “guides” feature have been received well in the market place. John Hansen used these features to present a paper at the conference about designing and manufacturing EC Flaw Detectors for today’s market.
For Baugh & Weedon it has been another chance to put their smallest employee Andy Tee and his one-third scale, fully functioning Magazon EBU 2000 MPI Bench to work; yet again attracting attention and compliments for the level of engineering, time and effort that went into the build.
It has also been a platform to launch the Baugh & Weedon Audit 207 UT Thickness Gauge. With a vast history of providing the industry with quality UT thickness gauges, it seemed an appropriate opportunity for this product launch that reflects the company’s direction going forward; to provide the industry with reliable, quality and up-to-the-minute technology.
Imaginos NDE has used the exhibition to once again showcase the PRAGMA PAUT technology as well as the Imperium UT Camera, the Accoustocam.
With PRAGMA sales going well in Europe and some specific applications satisfied in the UK with the PRAGMA equipment, it is establishing itself well in the European market.
Pete Burrows, Baugh & Weedon Sales Manager who was at NDT 2014 said, “This years exhibition has been a great opportunity to catch up with clients and fellow NDT colleagues in what has been a very busy year. We are now looking forward to going to ECNDT in Prague where we anticipate our products will be received with equal enthusiasm”.
