Speaking about the first sale of its Titan 650, Rory O’Rourke, CEO of UK monitoring leaders The Datum Group and CEO of Atlas Pile Testing Systems said: “Interest in the new Titan 650 has been unprecedented both in the UK and overseas, with export having been secured to China.
“However, I am delighted that NDT Services Ltd has become the first customer to take delivery. In fact, this is just the first of several that NDT Systems has placed on order.
“It’s [Titan 650] been long in development and now sets the standards for safety, accuracy and control, having the capacity to deliver precise loads for testing in a range of applications from soil nails to large diameter pile foundations, as well as having a wireless control system that facilitates rapid set up and precise control.”
