Our partners trust us! Sonaca, based in Belgium , a major aero-structures manufacturer, has just selected our software Ultis !
Ultis is the most advanced software package dedicated to Non-Destructive Testing, ultrasonic data analysis and automated diagnosis, http://testia.com/NDT-ultis
02 December 2013
Ultis is now able to load data acquired with the software Winscan of Metalscan . This new compatibility makes our software more universal, since it was already able to process data from Smart NDT tools (TESTIA), Omniscan & Focus (Olympus), Nuscan (GE), Midas (Tecnatom), Rapidscan (Sonatest), Multi2000 (M2M), Zeus software (MIDAS NDT UK) .
Main benefit are:
- capitalization of advanced analysis features whatever the acquisition instrument/software is,

The training school in Bremen is the biggest of its kind in Germany, as well as the only one to offer Level 1, 2 and 3 training across all NDT areas including:• Ultrasonic• Eddy Current• Film Radiography • Non-Film Radiography (from Q2 2014)• Penetrative Testing• Magnetic Particle Testing• Thermography Testing
The German National NDT Board (NANDTB) approved training school, formerly part of Airbus, has a strong, established reputation in Germany. It is expected that more than 400 engineers and inspectors will be trained there in the first year, with a 10% increase planned for the following years. Several partnerships are expected to cover the increased training, services andinspections requirements, including cooperation with APPLUS, a global aerospace and industrial NDT provider. TESTIA GmbH will also take an active role in NDT tools and equipment sales, including related training and services. Testia will act as a distributor for “niche” NDT equipment developed by EADS Innovation Works (e.g. Ultis, Smart NDT Tool), Airbus (e.g. Online Maintenance Assistance, OMA) and by other business units.Furthermore, Testia will act as a distributor and services provider for other equipment and tools suppliers who do not have their own distribution networks. For some tools, such as CFRP reference standards, guiding device and other accessories, TESTIA GmbH will work closely with the manufacturing specialist Premium Aerotec.It is envisaged that TESTIA GmbH will expand beyond its current location, to a newCentre for Eco-efficient Materials & Technologies (EcoMaT). Planning work has already started for the centre, which will consolidate the engineering capabilities provided by Airbus in the field of Material &Processes in one location. In the first instance, TESTIA GmbH will occupy 600m2 of the centre, housing high tech laboratories, training facilities and modern offices, with an option to expand as necessary in the future. TESTIA GmbH will be the second largest industrial company on site after Airbus, and is expected to move to the new facilities by late 2015 with its planned 20 to 30 employees. Denis Gardin, Head of EADS New Technology Ventures and President of TESTIA,said: “Against the background of increased use of composites in aero structures, more stringent airframe inspection requirements and increasing numbers of aircraft in service, TESTIA provides a global solution in aerospace non-destructive inspection, services and R&D.” “The opening of Testia in Germany enables us to support our customers directly, onsite, with first-class NDT services. Although the core business here is also non-destructive testing, Testia is aiming to expand its activities within the range of other quality-related topics and in relation to the NDT products.” Holger Speckmann, CEO of TESTIA GmbH said: “TESTIA GmbH will provide world-class quality NDT services and training for OEMs (e.g. Airbus, Astrium, Eurocopter, Cassidian, Premium Aerotec, etc.) and other manufacturers, as well as for MROs and OEM suppliers. The Bremen site is the starting point for its German operations,but other locations will follow in the future, providing NDT services where they are needed, as close as possible to our customers’ facilities. We are expecting other TESTIA GmbH operations to be launched across Germany in the very near future.” “In addition, TESTIA GmbH will provide expert consultancy services to companies worldwide, and has already started discussions in the United Arabian Emirates and the Middle East. Furthermore the extension of the Testia business to the US will be driven by TESTIA GmbH together with other TESTIA groups.” About TESTIATESTIA is an EADS company with over 20 years of experience in Aerospace Non-Destructive Testing and Training.

TESTIA (www.testia.com), an EADS company, today officially launched TESTIA Ltd, a new company specializing in Non-Destructive Testing and Training in Aerospace.TESTIA Ltd, based at the EADS Newport campus in Newport, South Wales, is aimed at meeting the future needs of the global aerospace industry by training a new generation of highly-skilled young engineers. It expects to be training up to 1,400 students a year within six years. They will achieve National Aerospace Board qualifications in Non Destructive Testing methods and processes, aimed at ensuring the consistent quality and integrity of aerospace industry materials, components and products (the aircraft or spacecraft) during manufacture and operation worldwide.In partnership with Caparo, a worldwide leader in the supply of NDT services and materials testing which will provide existing trained staff in support of the Newport operation, the company will also offer UK NDT Board approved apprenticeships for school leavers. The scheme will comprise both on-site (classroom) and on-the-job (aerospace manufacturing or flight maintenance) training. This will ensure a correct entry point for those who wish to pursue a career as a professional NDT practitioner in Aerospace and create those resources to maintain our product quality levels in the future.
Wales First Minister, Carwyn Jones, Ian Risk Head of EADS Innovation Works UK and Denis Gardin President of TESTIA launched TESTIA Ltd, the first UK facility to combine bespoke NDT training, research testing of new aerostructure composites, and expert aerospace NDT consultancy services for engineering and manufacturing companies.
