Materials Testing 2019 Exhibition set to be bigger and better than ever

Exhibition space for Materials Testing 2019 (MT 2019), taking place alongside NDT 2019 – the annual British Conference on NDT – from 3-5 September 2019 at the International Centre, Telford, UK, is selling fast and companies intending to participate should reserve their space as soon as possible to secure a good spot.

The number of exhibitors indicates that the show is well on its way to being a most comprehensive international exhibition in the world of testing for quality, non-destructive testing (NDT), materials testing, condition monitoring (CM), mechanical testing and diagnostic technology.

The following key companies have already booked exhibition space: Advanced NDT Ltd, Advanced OEM Solutions, Aegleteq Ltd, AINDT, Ashtead Technology, ASNT, ATH NDT Ltd, Baugh & Weedon, Bowyer Engineering Ltd, Chemetall Ltd, Crimson Industrial Vision Ltd, ECNDT, Eddyfi, ETher NDE Ltd, Euroteck Systems UK Ltd, Extende S.A., Fidgeon Ltd, Fujifilm Europe GmbH, GB Inspection Systems, GE Measurement & Control, Gilligan Engineering Services Ltd, Hamamatsu Photonics UK Ltd, High Technology Sources Ltd, IMechE Argyll Ruane, Ionix Advanced Technologies Ltd, Jireh Industries, JME Ltd, Johnson & Allen Ltd, JR Technology Ltd, JSNDI, Labquip NDT Ltd, Lavender International NDT, Luke NDT (EU) Ltd, Magnaflux (division of ITW Ltd), MISTRAS Group Ltd, NDT Global Services Ltd, NewGen NDT Ltd, Novosound Ltd, Oceanscan Ltd, Olympus, Optimax IIM Ltd, Peak NDT Ltd, Pexa Ltd, Phoenix Inspection Systems Ltd, Proceq UK Ltd, SG-NDT Inc, Skills Training UK, Sonatest Ltd, Sonaxis SA, South West School of NDT, Testia Ltd, Testrade Ltd, TWI Ltd, Ultrasonic Sciences Ltd, Verasonics Inc, Wardray Premise Ltd, WesDyne, WCNDT and Zetec.

The show organiser, the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT), is planning a series of features that will make the 2019 event an even better shop window for exhibitors. The exhibition will be shell-scheme only, with stands available in three very competitively-priced packages, and Corporate members of BINDT will be eligible for a 10% discount. To view the provisional floor plan visit:

There are a small number of stands still available, but exhibitors are encouraged to book quickly to avoid disappointment. Space will be allocated on a strictly ‘first-come, first-served’ basis. To reserve your space, contact Karen Cambridge at

This prestigious event is free of charge to visitors and will once again prove attractive with easy access from Europe as well as the UK. Telford is less than an hour and a half from three international airports and is only five minutes away from the UK rail and motorway networks.

The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is a UK-based professional engineering institution working to promote the advancement of the science and practice of non-destructive testing (NDT), condition monitoring (CM), diagnostic engineering and all other materials and quality testing disciplines. Internationally recognised, it is concerned with the education, training and certification of its members and all those engaged in NDT and CM and through its publications and annual conferences and events it disseminates news of the latest advances in the science and practice of the subjects.

What are NDT and CM?
Non-destructive testing is the branch of engineering concerned with all methods of detecting and evaluating flaws in materials. Flaws can affect the serviceability of a material or structure, so NDT is important in guaranteeing safe operation as well as in quality control and assessing plant life. The flaws may be cracks or inclusions in welds and castings or variations in structural properties, which can lead to a loss of strength or failure in service. The essential feature of NDT is that the test process itself produces no deleterious effects on the material or structure under test. The subject of NDT has no clearly defined boundaries; it ranges from simple techniques such as the visual examination of surfaces, through the well-established methods of radiography, ultrasonic testing and magnetic particle crack detection, to new and very specialised methods such as the measurement of Barkhausen noise and positron annihilation spectroscopy.

Condition monitoring (CM) aims to ensure plant efficiency, productivity and reliability by monitoring and analysing the wear of operating machinery and components to provide an early warning of impending failure, thereby reducing costly plant shutdown. Condition monitoring originally used mainly vibration and tribology analysis techniques but now encompasses new fields such as thermal imaging, acoustic emission and other non-destructive techniques. The diagnostic and prognostic elements, in addition to increasingly sophisticated signal processing, is using trends from repeated measurements in time intervals of days and weeks.
