Showcase of expertise at Engineering Testing Show

Intertek, a quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, will be demonstrating its expertise in non-destructive, materials and metallurgical testing and chemical analysis at the Engineering Testing Show in Derby on 28th October 2014.

Experts from the company’s Derby-based laboratories will showcase their testing and inspection services at the event and guest speaker Intertek’s NDT expert, Phil Morris, will present on “Non -Destructive Testing – what it is and where it’s going” at 1pm in Theatre 1. The company recently invested £200,000 in new immersion ultrasonic equipment – the ScanMaster LS-500 – for inspecting rectilinear discs. The rectilinear discs are used in industries such as aerospace and forgings, and immersion ultrasonic testing is used to detect any flaws and irregularities in the discs. Investment in this equipment further demonstrates Intertek’s commitment to providing customers a complete service solution using state-of-the art technology.
