NLA Diagnostics Showcase Technology at Farnborough International Airshow

Charlotte, NC, July 21, 2014 – Two senior executives of Charlotte, NC based NLA Diagnostics attended the Farnborough Airshow as part of the North Carolina delegation to present their companies’ technology.

Principal, Rick Webster and Managing Director, Bill Choate spent five days at the show sharing their company’s technology with aerospace companies eager to find new cost effective ways to identify micro-cracking, delaminations and voids in composite materials.  Attendees at the Farnborough International Airshow were particularly interested in NLAD’s ability to detect far-side damage to composite material from the near-side, in many cases where the material remains on the aircraft.

Aerospace companies are now offering a new wide range of performance options with the integration of light weight composite materials into the aircraft, thus offering aircraft the advantage of weight reduction and additional strength.  NLA Diagnostics has taken the lead in offering a unique way to identify defects and damage before these areas become critical.

Farnborough, like the Paris Airshow, is a unique opportunity for company executives to expand their markets to tier 1 companies and also open new markets to composite manufacturers in the aerospace business.  “This trip was unique for NLAD, as we were able to have very constructive dialogues with a large number of European aircraft manufacturers eager to see new technology in the non-destructive testing area.  “We were thrilled with the proactive reception we received,” Webster says

NLA Diagnostics, LLC, a Veteran-Owned Enterprise, designs and manufactures high-quality diagnostic testing equipment that identifies delamination, disbands, voids and thermal damage in composite and other advance materials through a field-portable device.  For more information, visit
