Bond testing seminars

Speak with the experts

Aiming to improve understanding of bond testing in the industry, XYZTEC organizes seminars to present and disseminate knowledge in a straightforward format. Every seminar is focussed around a particular aspect of the science of bond testing.

The XYZTEC expert holds an informative presentation and invites the attendees to participate by asking questions and sharing their thoughts and experience on the subject. Additionally, every seminar provides the opportunity for your quality control engineers to discuss any bond testing challenges that your company is facing with the XYZTEC experts.
