January 11, 2016

Eighteen members of The Pacific Northwest section of ASNT gathered at the Double Tree Hilton Inn in South Center, Tukwila, WA on Monday January 11, 2016. Amoung the 18 members were 5 ASNT Corporate Partner delegates and 4 students from Clover Park Technical College. A presentation titled “Digitizing, Bandwidth and Making Sure Things Go Right…” was presented by Dave Brown of VM Products, Inc.. The Eddy current speed of an inspection is predicated by the system frequency, bandwith and refresh rate. Quite often one or all of these parameters are dictated by the project specifications. The optimum digitizing rate is based on an acceptable number of samples per inch which is based on the minimum flaw size to be detected.

Dinners of Ceasar Salad with Salmon or Steak, Chicken Fettucine, Cod Fillets, Tomato Basil soup and Deluxe Pulled Pork Burgers preceded Dave’s presentation. There were several questions from each of the 4 Clover Park Technical College students. About half of those in attendance were 1st time attendees. Many of those present were who joined the group, two potential new members and most of the members. This was a very exciting presentation.

As a meeting attendance incentive thirty dollars is added to a fund at each meeting towards a year end drawing of $240 from those who sign the guest book at each meeting.

The next meeting will be Monday February 8, 2016 with a presentation of Laser Techniques by Jim Doyle of Laser Techniques Company

Vice Chairperson Flynn Spears presents a certificate of appreciation from the section and an ASNT pen & pencil set to speaker Dave Brown after his presentation.
