Experts to reveal the latest innovations in the non-destructive inspection of AM parts

August 18, 2017

With the increased use of Additive Manufacturing in industry, new and improved testing techniques are required to validate components, according to the UK’s leading professional body, the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT).

BINDT is bringing together inspection experts to discuss the latest developments in inspecting AM components at a half-day programme of seminars on Wednesday September 6 in Telford, UK as part of its annual conference, NDT 2017.

Additive Manufacturing will also be a key theme at the free Materials Testing exhibition which runs alongside the conference from September 5-7 at Telford International Centre.

The programme will include talks from Dr Ben Dutton of the Manufacturing Technology Centre, who is playing a key role in the development of new ISO standards for testing AM components and will also feature the latest techniques such as laser ultrasound and computed tomography.

The conference will also include a full day of seminars on composite inspection on Tuesday September 5.

David Gilbert of BINDT stated, “Additive Manufacturing offers the freedom to produce components with more complex geometries and in more lightweight materials, yet they can be difficult to test using conventional methods. NDT 2017 will highlight the work that is going on to develop new inspection techniques and new standards, which in turn will help to build confidence and further increase the uptake of Additive Manufacturing in industry.” |
