The theme of the 2017 Aerospace Event will be ‘Joining technologies and the challenges they present to the inspection community’. There will also be a tour of the new TWI facilities in Cambridge, where delegates will have the opportunity to witness first-hand some of the technologies presented, both in terms of manufacture and inspection.

The first day will be hosted by the Aerospace Group and will focus mainly on metallic technologies, such as friction stir welding, the advantages it offers over conventional welding and the challenges it presents for inspection of the resultant product.

The second day will be hosted by the Composites Group and will focus on the non-metallic composite materials used in the aerospace, automotive, marine, civil and pipeline engineering sectors for primary production as well as retrospective repairs and upgrades.

Ashtead Technology will be showcasing the latest rental equipment and technologies available for aircraft maintenance and inspection. This includes Borescopes, Composite Inspection Systems, Flaw Detectors, XRF Analysers and Thickness Gauges.
