QUEBEC, March 8, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Mecnov, Inc. is rebranding its non-destructive testing (NDT) activities under the Contour Dynamics brand. Effective as of today, the former Mecnov NDT Systems division will operate as Contour Dynamics Inspection Systems. The other activities of the company, namely industrial machinery and equipment fabrication and integration, will continue to operate under Mecnov Integrated Mechanical Solutions.
"We decided to promote our automated NDT products and solutions with a more evocative name" says Kennedy Gagnon, president of Mecnov. "Our new branding will better represent our business which consists in providing dynamic contour following inspection solutions for advanced materials", added Gagnon.
As part of its expansion and market diversification process, Mecnov Inc. acquired the assets of Contour Dynamics Inc. at the end of year 2010. This rebranding now concludes the integration of Contour Dynamics Inc., Mecnov's fully owned subsidiary based in Wichita, Kansas, USA.
The company will make its first appearance under the new brand at the Composite Manufacturing 2012 conference and exhibition, in Mesa, Arizona, on March 13-15, 2012.
Automated non-destructive testing (NDT) systems are used by manufacturers of primary structures and components for aircraft, high-speed railroad transportation, oil & gas prospection and production, nuclear power generation and many other applications. Ultrasound, radiography and visual or infrared imaging are amongst the technologies used to perform NDT inspections in the manufacturing environment.
