TELFORD, UK Materials Testing, a world exhibition of non-destructive testing, materials testing, condition monitoring and diagnostic technology, returns this year with a new range of features and industry speakers.

Materials Testing 2015 will take place from Sept. 8-10 in Telford, U.K. Taking center stage at the exhibition will be the full-size Bloodhound SSC Show Car. The Bloodhound SSC vehicle, which is currently under construction in the U.K., is due to undergo low-speed trials later this year before being shipped to South Africa in preparation for an attempt to break the world land-speed record of 763 mph.

Visitors will have the chance to learn about the challenges involved in inspecting the vehicle, which will be powered by a rocket bolted to a Eurofighter Typhoon jet engine and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 1000 mph.

Materials Testing 2015 promises to be the biggest and best exhibition to date, with over 70 exhibitors. Entry is free of charge for visitors, who will benefit not only from a concentration of materials testing innovation and excellence, but also from an enhanced programme of seminars covering the practical aspects of NDT and related technologies.

The event is organized by the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) and will run alongside its annual conference, NDT 2015, providing additional networking opportunities.

The Bloodhound SSC talks will take place on Sept. 9.

Materials Testing is the most comprehensive event of its type for the NDT industry, bringing together the latest technologies from companies around the world. It allows equipment producers, NDT practitioners and users alike to keep up to date, make new contacts and win new business.

The International Centre in Telford, in the West Midlands, is less than one-and-a-half hours from three international airports and only five minutes away from the U.K. rail and motorway networks.
