This ½ day workshop exposes attendees to ultrasound technology; what it is, how it’s useful, and why it is quickly becoming the go-to technology for reliability departments around the globe. Attendees should look forward to a lively, interactive event that combines lecture, practical exercises, and hands on experiences with ultrasound instruments in real-world applications.

The 8 Pillars of Ultrasound explores how ultrasound’s versatility solves both simple and complex problems that threaten production, quality, and cost. Go beyond simply understanding “how” — in this workshop expect to experience “how” first-hand. The 8 Pillars explains the benefits of ultrasound in an easy to understand platform related directly to your operations.

A limited number of ultrasound instruments and practical simulators will be available during the workshop for attendees to test and prove out the applications discussed in The Pillars.
