The contact&dynamic testing methods lab

The contact&dynamic testing methods lab



Researches and production, conducted by our lab, are made through a full work cycle: from a scientific idea to a practical realiziation. The results of our researches are usually acknowledged in the Republic of Belarus and abroad. The practical realiziation of our researches lead to the creation of new fully certified NDT measurement devices that are not inferior to thier analogues. Technical commitee for standartization TC BY 10 “Technical diagnostics and NDT” is based on our lab, which allows us to develop govermental standards.
