Baugh & Weedon's partner Tecnitest Ingenieros S.L. successfully completes the development and installation of an automated UT part inspection system for the NDT service at CERN's Group for Mechanical and Materials Engineering section.

Tecnitest Ingenieros S.L. has successfully completed the development and installation of an automatic ultrasonic (UT) part inspection system for the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) service at CERN's Group for Mechanical and Materials Engineering.


The system has been tailored to the customer's needs to allow quality verifications of construction elements used by CERN, with state-of-the-art materials, and with a range of different sizes and geometries.


In January 2020 Tecnitest Ingenieros S.L., was awarded this ambitious project, after presenting the most competitive technical and economic proposal in the public tender held. The system consists of a water immersion tank in which differentiated inspection environments have been created that make use of the different technologies and methods used in ultrasound-based industrial inspection.

The main characteristics of this sophisticated system, as explained by Tecnitest expert team, are:

Pipe identification simplified for the water and gas industries, the Pipecheck 3 is now available, simply improving your safety in the field.

The PipeCheck 3 is the latest in the PipeCheck Series which has been used successfully in the UK water, gas and petrochemical industries for many years. With an established reputation for reliability and enhancing safety, the PipeCheck 3 is now housed in a more rugged and ergonomic case, developed with the operator in mind. 


PipeCheck 3 is a simple to use hand-held instrument which positively identifies pipes filled with water and other fluids, using ultrasound. PipeCheck 3 is designed to address the major identification problems, experienced by engineers engaged mostly in the water and gas service industries, when old cast or spun iron pipes are exposed.

Baugh & Weedon pave the way for Kodak's Imaging Legacy to return to the UK & Ireland's NDT market"


Baugh & Weedon Ltd is extremely pleased to announce that, from 1st April 2020, they will be the UK and Ireland Distribution Partner for KODAK Industrial X-Ray Films, working alongside the Kodak team in Rochester, USA to deliver the very best in film quality and choice for the NDT industry. On the 6th May 2019, Eastman Kodak Company announced the introduction of the KODAK Industrial X-Ray Films and Chemicals for non-destructive testing (NDT) to the US market before looking for the right partners to expand their global network. The reintroduction of non-destructive testing X-ray film products highlights Kodak’s ongoing commitment to and investment in film. Kodak’s reintroduction of EKTACHROME film is a recent example of the resurgence in demand for analogue film.

The new BondCheck makes multi-mode bond testing simpler, enhancing accuracy and increasing inspection speeds.


The new BondCheck is a multi-mode bond testing flaw detector providing high speed bond inspection in pitch-catch or resonance modes, or  mechanical impedance analysis (MIA), with excellent defect sensitivity.  Inspection applications include those where carbon and metal honeycombs need to be inspected for delaminations, disbonds and core damage as well as small defect detection and dry coupling.  The BondCheck is ideal for a wide spectrum of advanced material NDT of required in the aerospace, automotive, wind energy and advanced manufacturing sectors.

TruFlux Magnetic Flux Leakage Tank Floor Scanner

The TruFlux is a new concept in Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) tank floor plate inspection, incorporating a new level of user sophistication in its innovative design. The FS1 has the benefits of advanced features and practicality.

The TruFlux is a fully self-propelled high-resolution digital scanner, capable of producing highly accurate topographical images of 6-12mm storage tank floor plates.

Particular attention has been paid to the mechanical design of the TruFlux. Notably in its physical size, the TruFlux weighs just 32kg inclusive of its slip-in-slip-out lithium ion battery pack. Yet with its advanced design, no functionality has been compromised; in fact, significant advancements in floor plate inspection have been incorporated into the TruFlux system design.

Martin Sutton Joins Baugh & Weedon and ETher NDE

Baugh & Weedon and ETher NDE are delighted to be able to welcome Martin Sutton to the Sales Team as Area Sales Manager and European Sales Manager respectively.

Martin has a rich and long history within the NDT industry that spans over twenty years. Martin started his NDT career with a work experience placement in an Aviation heavy maintenance facility (looking after ageing wide body freighters) at Modern Jet Support Centre on Manston Airfield in Kent. While here, Martin showed a flair and passion for the industry and they offered him an NDT apprenticeship in 1993, which he happily accepted. 

After three years of training, Martin enjoyed a brief career as a PC in the police force (with Kent Police) before rejoining Jet Support to continue with his NDT development and PCN accreditation. After spending the next 6 years working his way through his MPI, Eddy Current and Ultrasonic PCN level 2 approvals he went on to manage the NDT department.
