Materials Testing 2015 - including free Bloodhound Event

The International Centre, Telford

Materials Testing 2015 will feature around 60 exhibitors – many of whom will be demonstrating products and equipment for the first time – along with a programme of seminars including talks ranging from NDT for 3D printing and using phased array ultrasound, to corrosion analysis in pipelines. There will also be a demonstration area, where manufacturers can bring along samples for testing and discuss their particular inspection problems.

Materials Testing 2015 will be the premier forum for a concentration of materials testing innovation and excellence. A host of initiatives are planned to make the exhibition a unique opportunity for the entire materials testing industry to meet and do business.

The exhibition will also feature a series of free talks about NDT careers, including how NDT professionals can achieve the coveted Engineering Council registration, and the new NDT apprenticeships scheme. There will also be technical talks on everything from the use of NDT for 3D printing to advances in sub-sea inspection and corrosion analysis in pipelines.

Materials Testing – the world's most comprehensive exhibition of non-destructive testing (NDT), materials testing, condition monitoring and diagnostic technology – will feature around 75 exhibitors. It is organised by the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT).
