IR camera aids non-destructive testing

Share this on social media:

A Titanium 560MB IR camera system from Cedip Infrared Systems has been selected by the Engineering and Design faculty at the Swansea Institute to provide consultative services to local industry in South Wales. It will also be used as a teaching tool for students involved with a new MSc course in Non-Destructive Testing.

The new Masters degree, validated by the University of Wales, starting in October 2007 is the only MSc course in non-destructive testing (NDT) in the UK. The Swansea Institute also studies the properties of architectural glass and often coffers consultative services to the large Welsh automotive component supplier community.

Kelvin Donne, dean of the engineering and applied design faculty at the Swansea Institute, said: ‘The technology and applications of non-destructive testing are wide ranging and constantly evolving.  With other applications constantly emerging the unique combination of compactness, high performance and a removable lens interface offered by the Titanium 560MB gives us the flexibility to cope with the demands of these new measurements.’
