The Australian Institute of Non-destructive Testing (AINDT) Conference provides an opportunity for maintenance and quality assurance professionals to learn more about NDT technologies from global experts. The four-day conference is being held this year at the Sofitel Brisbane Central from 23-26 November.

Olympus Australia will be demonstrating a range of NDT, phased array, remote visual inspection (RVI) and X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) equipment at their stand. NDT refers to any analysis technique used to evaluate the properties of materials or components without causing damage or permanently altering the article being inspected.

Olympus staff will be on hand to discuss the latest NDT tools from the company. NDT Product Specialist Richard Nowak will be giving practical demonstrations of the Nortec N600 eddy current analyser and the RollerFORM phased array wheel probe.

Nicholas Bublitz from Olympus Scientific Solutions America will be presenting a technical paper titled ‘Improving Surface Mine Profitability with Phased Array Ultrasonics’ at the AINDT Conference. Visitors to the Olympus stand will have the opportunity to meet with Bublitz to discuss a range of NDT solutions or troubleshoot advanced applications.

A Global Product Support Specialist with Olympus SSA since 2012, Bublitz is responsible for the global support and industry advancement of all NDT equipment produced by Olympus. He will be focussing on Phased Array and Time of Flight Diffraction (TofD) ultrasound during his Australia visit.

Olympus National Key Accounts & Technical Manager Graham Maxwell comments that Olympus’ new technologies and the range of analysis, testing and imaging instrumentation allow the company to supply equipment for a wide range of non-destructive applications in diverse industries.
