This is a joint Scottish Branch event organised and run for the benefit of members from both Institutes. Other members and non-members are welcome to join us.
Overview: The current methods for Non-Destructive Testing of welds and Additively Manufactured metal components are restricted to room temperature inspection, which is usually carried out 48-96 hours after the manufacturing is completed. In-process ultrasonic inspection provides the opportunity to detect and repair defects as soon as they develop, allowing to deliver right-first-time components while increasing the scheduling certainty of the production and reducing the costs associated with rework. The team at the University of Strathclyde SEARCH Lab have developed a number of leading innovations to tackle the challenges of deploying ultrasonic inspection at the point of manufacture.
Speaker: Dr Momchil Vasilev
Speaker Biography: Momchil received the PhD for his work on in-process ultrasonic inspection and advanced robotic control from the University of Strathclyde in 2021. He is currently a RAEng Enterprise Fellow aiming to bring the in-process NDT technology to market though the spin-out inProcess.
