“Learning the Ropes”

Learning the Ropes

June 2014

Rigmar Training Centre host Eclipse Scientific Open days.

Mid May saw Pete Burrows from Baugh & Weedon NDE head to Aberdeen to demonstrate the Eclipse Scientific High Temperature Equipment. Rigmar Training Centre Ltd was kind enough to host the demonstration event over two days and provide Pete with a safe environment to use a hot plate to highlight the advantages of the Eclipse High Temperature scanner and probe. 

There was plenty of interest in the equipment, but the trip also gave Pete the opportunity to catch up with customers about all the products across ETher NDE and Baugh & Weedon. Kate Hodgson joined Pete on the trip and used the time to gather valuable feedback from customers regarding all the available products from ETher NDE and Baugh & Weedon with particular focus on the WeldCheck Eddy current flaw detector from ETher NDE. She also found time to monkey around on the ropes; being given some very beginners training in rope access.
Pete said of the trip

“It was a really valuable chance to show off the Eclipse Scientific Equipment whist it was in the country for a limited period. We hope the open days will encourage further interest in the Eclipse products.”

Kate added,

“As well as being able to meet some key customers, it was both great fun and a good opportunity to see how rope access really feels by getting on the ropes. I now have a greater understanding of how difficult it must be for NDT Inspectors offshore. Although I was totally petrified to begin with by the end I was really enjoying it. I would like to say thank you to both Ray Wilson and Ray Liversidge at Rigmar Training Centre Ltd for taking the time to give me that experience”.
