Each year, the Australian Institute of Non-destructive Testing (AINDT) Conference provides the opportunity for maintenance and quality assurance professionals to learn more about NDT and related technologies from leading AINDT members including Olympus. The four day conference is being held this year at the Sofitel Brisbane Central from 23-26 November.
NDT is any analysis technique used to evaluate the properties of materials or components without causing damage or permanently alter the article being inspected.

On its stand at the AINDT Conference, Olympus will be demonstrating a range of NDT, phased-array, remote visual inspection (RVI) and X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) portfolios to attendees. “We continue our commitment to the Institute and its ongoing initiatives promoting the benefits of NDT,” said Graham Maxwell, National Key Accounts & Technical Manager at Olympus. “We will be demonstrating our range to new customers and showing our continued support and commitment to existing customers.”
Olympus staff will be on hand to discuss the latest NDT tools from the company. Richard Nowak, NDT Product Specialist, will be giving practical demonstrations of the Nortec N600 Eddy Current analyser and the RollerFORM phased array wheel probe.
A special guest at this year’s conference will be Nicholas Bublitz, who is visiting Australia again from Olympus Scientific Solutions America. He will be presenting a technical paper entitled “Improving Surface Mine Profitability with Phased Array Ultrasonics.”
Visitors to the Olympus stand will have the opportunity to meet with Bublitz to discuss a range of NDT solutions or troubleshoot advanced applications with a renowned international product specialist.
Bublitz has been a Global Product Support Specialist with Olympus SSA since 2012. He is responsible for the global support and industry advancement of all NDT equipment produced by Olympus. Mr Bublitz’s primary focus during his Australian visit will on Phased Array, and Time of Flight Diffraction (TofD) ultrasound.
“With the newest technologies and the range of analysis, testing and imaging instrumentation available, we can supply equipment for a wide range of non-destructive applications to a wide variety of industries,” Maxwell concluded. “We are committed to the development of new technologies, products, and services that offer the best solutions to meet the needs of our customers.”
