In addition Paul Sacker, Crimson Industrial Vision, will present an overview of the current status of the thermography technology market. Specific references will be made to the increased user choice of resolution; an explanation of the technology used in various image overlay and resolution enhancement incorporated in thermography cameras; and their increasing use in production quality and NDT applications.

Other presentations will include: Jyoti Sinha from the University of Manchester who will look at vibration-based condition monitoring of rotating machines; Andrew Starr, Cranfield University, will present a session on autonomous maintenance scheduling. While Tom Berry from GE, will look at production asset reliability (PAR) - predictive maintenance to better manage your assets; and Geoff Walker from Artesis will present a session on improving maintenance: how a combination of condition monitoring technology and international standards can help.
