Vibrant NDT Ltd is attending the 49th Annual Conference of The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing this week. With recent FAA approval of PCRT for turbine blade testing in the United States, and an ASTM Standard Practice (E2534) published earlier this year, business has been picking up. “We are thrilled that even in this tough economy this new technology is making progress” said Vibrant NDT’s Director Jon Johnson. “It hasn’t been easy, but we have a handful of customers now who understand that the value of PCRT is far greater that traditional NDT methods” Johnson said. “Now we really have something to sell,” commented Vibrant Application Engineer Wei Liang Choong. “Several times in the past projects with aerospace customers have ground to a halt due to questions about industry standards and FAA approval. Now we are seeing some of those projects come back to life,” said Choong.
