BINDT’s Aerospace Event 2017

This year TVC will be exhibiting at three events. The first, next month on 25 April, at the BINDT Aerospace Event 2017. The two-day event is being held at TWI Ltd in Cambridge, UK. It’s theme this year is ‘Joining technologies and the challenges they present to the inspection community’.

TVC will be showcasing our welding dataloggers and gas monitoring equipment along with discussing our UKAS accreditation in Ultrasonic Flaw Detectors and exceptional laboratory facilities with visitors. Pop along to see us!

The first day, 25 April, hosted by the Aerospace Group, focusses mainly on metallic technologies and includes a tour of the new TWI facilities along with the one-day exhibition which TVC will be present at.

This day will cover:

  • Electron beam welding
  • Additive layer manufacturing
  • Future NDT requirements for joining technologies (panel session)

The second day, 26 April, hosted by the Composites Group, focusses on the non-metallic composite materials used in the aerospace, automotive, marine, civil and pipeline engineering sectors (primary production, retrospective repairs and upgrades). This day will cover:
