Reaching Out to Share Signals with Colleagues in Real-Time

9:35 a.m. BST Thursday, September 10, 2015

Find out how remote collaboration can help overcome nondestructive testing (NDT) skills shortages and improve productivity at this free seminar, which is one of a series of talks by experts from GE Measurement & Control at the Materials Testing 2015 exhibition.

Alan Hunscott, technical support manager at GE, will be speaking about the benefits of GE’s InspectionWorks Connect system, which allows NDT professionals to access live video and data from inspections being carried out by their colleagues in other locations.

“Remote collaboration is the future of NDT,” says Hunscott. “With many senior practitioners approaching retirement, it allows highly skilled inspectors to support less experienced colleagues in the field and to share their expertise to help develop the next generation of NDT professionals. It can also be used to provide an expert second opinion during critical inspections or those in remote locations.”

9:50 a.m. BST Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Bob Ward, GE’s global product manager, will explain how to produce a workflow app for ultrasonic testing (UT) flaw detectors or eddy current (EC) units.

Defect Sizing

11 a.m. BST Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Alan Hunscott outlines the key considerations when sizing defects in this free tuition session for NDT practitioners.
