Element Materials Technology has announced it will invest in more immersion ultrasonic testing (IUT) for aerospace equipment in Mexico.

It currently already offers IUT services elsewhere across the world, including in Houston, Texas; Hartford, Connecticut; Rancho Dominguez, California; and Sheffield, England.

However, there has been demand for it in Monterrey in Mexico too, which is why the technology company is planning to expand its offering south of the US border, reported Aero-Mag.

As a result, it will become the only Nadcap and GE approved independent materials testing laboratory in Central and South America to provide IUT services for the aerospace industry.

Executive vice president for aerospace at Element Materials Technology Rick Sluiters told the news provider the company’s IUT offering is something “customers across North America and Europe value highly”.

This has led to a demand for the services in Mexico, which is why Element has decided to invest in the area so it can meet clients’ needs.

“We are committed to maintaining a high level of service, as well as our technical proficiencies and our improved capacity will allow us to maintain the turnaround our customers expect,” Mr Sluiters stated.

More than 3,000 people work for Element Materials Technology, whether they are technicians, engineers or scientists, dedicating their knowledge and experience to commercial and military aerospace testing.

It prides itself on being the “largest, independent provider of materials testing, product qualification testing, calibration and advisory services to the global aerospace testing sector”.

The company has more than 100 years’ experience, enabling it to offer a range of testing services for varying components, products, materials and systems regarding aerospace technology.
