18 September 2018

The Southern Africa Section had another good technical evening on Tuesday 18th September at SANDE in Impala Park.

Chris Georgiou from Techtra Engineering Consultants gave an extremely informative presentation and demonstration of eddy current tube testing with the Olympus Nortec 600D machine using existing near field and far field probes.

As always all present enjoyed the usual pizza!

The Southern Africa Section had a very well attended presentation by Jacob Bentsen from Denmark entitled ‘Yxlon Portable X-Ray Tubes’ on Tuesday 3 October at SANDE in Impala Park, Boksburg.

The evening was a great success and the usual pizza completely disappeared!
