On 4 July 2013, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers announced the acquisition of the internationally recognised non-destructive testing samples company, Sonaspection.
This acquisition marked an important step for the Institution’s contributions not only to the Non- destructive Industry, but as a catalyst to enable new standards and techniques across many important industries. We believe Non-destructive testing and flawed specimens are vital to an extremely broad range of engineering sectors and to the institutions’s members.
The Directors of Sonaspection commented:
“This will strengthen our management and promotional capabilities. It will give the Institution’s members and our customers a robust service in the non-destructive testing, training and certification sector and we will be better able to meet the growing and changing needs of our global clients in the future.”
Sonaspection has manufactured thousands of flawed specimens for all major performance demonstration, training and qualification centres around the world. The company, now in its 38th year, is the pioneer of many ‘industry standard' flaw manufacture and implanting techniques.
