One of the world’s leading training organisations, TWI, has recently purchased a number of TD Pocket-Scan systems to be used for the forthcoming Time-of-Flight-Diffraction training programmes. The TD Pocket-Scan is one of the world’s smallest advanced ultrasonic imaging and analysis systems available in the marketplace. The miniature and highly portable system provides an outstanding capability for Time-of-Flight-Diffraction (TOFD), Single/Multichannel Corrosion Mapping, Pulse Echo (PE) and Girth/Seam weld examination techniques.

Recognising the increasing use of portable units for on-site testing and the need for personnel using the equipment to be trained and qualified to a recognized standard, TWI believes that the advanced capabilities of the TD Pocket-Scan will meet the high standards of training it delivers to the many thousands of candidates it trains around the world each year.

TWI’s 9-day TOFD course is aimed at individuals with ultrasonic testing experience who are looking to expand their knowledge into advanced ultrasonic applications and gain a CSWIP recognized qualification in Time-of-Flight-Diffraction. The package will include:

  • TOFD theory and principles of diffraction
  • TOFD data acquisition and interpretation
  • TOFD techniques and applications
  • EN 473/ISO 9712 internationally recognised certification.

AGR Field Operations Sales & Marketing Manager Jackie Berry comments: ‘The relationship between TWI and AGR Field Operations is very important to us and can only add to our continued success. The collaboration with TWI will enhance our presence with world-class training facilities thus increasing our profile with end-users and technicians alike.
