|Seville, May 6 2015.- Tecnatom is one of the main sponsors of the 13th National Congress
on Non-Destructive Testing, which begins today in Seville until May 8 at the Higher Technical
School of Engineering. This is an unmissable event for professionals and companies in which
both latest technical and scientific developments in the field of NDT as coming trends are
With more than 50 years of experience in this area, Tecnatom renews its commitment to this
new edition of the Congress, organized by the Spanish Association of Non-Destructive Testing
(AEND), of which is an active member since its founding, having participated in all editions
from the beginning.
Tecnatom's commitment is also reflected in the active involvement of its staff both in AEND
and the Congress itself. Emilio Gonzalez, Quality Director in Tecnatom, is the current General
Secretary of the AEND. And Rafael Martínez-Oña, Deputy Director at the Inspection and
Testing Services Direction in Tecnatom holds the position of Quality Director at the
AEND and also takes part in the Scientific Committee, chairing the session "Applications in
power plants 1”.
Tecnatom participates in several papers covering all areas in which has experience with regard
to the application on NDT techniques in different areas: power generation, petrochemical,
industrial in general and, particularly, the aerospace sector, which has been providing
technology services for more than a decade experiencing a constant growth.
Tecnatom also shares a booth with its Spanish subsidiary Ibercal as well as the French
subsidiary M2M, which will make some demonstrations of Gekko, a portable system that
optimizes the ultrasonic technique based on phased array technology for application to various
sectors, giving it an easily compressible interface and generated from the perspective of the
Another novelty that Tecnatom presents these days, specifically and officially in a special act
on May 7, is the public launch of a new website specialized in products that Tecnatom
develops for non-destructive testing: www.tecnatom-ndt.com.
This idea emerged from the
Direction of Technology and Product Development of Tecnatom, which thought about the need
to create a platform through which they could show its progress in developing products for its
application in NDT. And these products are part of the underlying technology in the embedded
systems of automated inspection that Tecnatom manufactures to be used in inspection activities
or for delivery to customers. Products such as Eddy current and ultrasonic equipment,
electronics, probes, accessories sensors and software, in addition to the integrated systems
mentioned above are the protagonists of this website. With its creation, the promotion of these
equipment and components will be more agile and accessible to those interested in information
about these systems.
Tecnatom is one of the multinational companies specializing in engineering, present in 32
countries and with more than 50 years of experience in NDT. The company develops its own
state-of-the-art technology in ultrasonic inspection and for research and development activities
in labs that is permanently updated and improved through R&D. The Tecnatom Group has
established itself as a leading company in supplying inspection tools, equipment, systems and
services mainly based on ultrasonics, Eddy current, thermography and other NDT techniques
in nuclear and aviation industry, among other markets.
Along with its own technology, comprehensive service and individualized counseling to the
client is the other differential value of Tecnatom. Thus, the company works closely with its
clients in the specification of the inspection systems in order to determine the proper procedure
and design and develop the automatic inspection systems relevant.
