STW Non-Destructive – Industrial Retractable Tunnels

REQUIREMENT:

STW (Non-Destructive) Ltd are a leading non-destructive testing sub-contractors. Their need was very niche for Spaciotempo however, we had the ideal solution! They required a blackened out retractable tunnel to perform Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI). We provided a 6m long x 3m blackened out retractable tunnel with skirting to assist elimination of light ingress.

SOLUTION:

When STW (Non-Destructive) Ltd approached Spaciotempo they had a very specific need in mind – one where our retractable tunnels design came into its own. STW (Non-Destructive) Ltd are a leading non-destructive testing sub-contractors. Specialising in the testing of a range of metal products to the oil and gas, engineering, aerospace, nuclear, and defence industries. To enable them to deliver visible and fluorescent Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) services in-house they required a blacked out industrial tunnel to assist elimination of light ingress – products to be tested are positioned in the tunnel and ultra violet light is used to detect flaws.

Retractable Tunnels, Sales Coordinator, Teresa Parkes, comments: “We provide a wide range of retractable tunnels, which provide a great solution for a huge number of applications. When our industrial tunnels are used inside buildings, they run on nylon wheels (rather than tracks) which means they can be moved wherever the customer needs them – providing increased versatility.”
