Dage X-ray and Tin Technology Ltd form strong bonds

An agreement has been signed which lays the foundation for a close co-operation between Dage X-ray division and Tin Technology Ltd. The agreement includes purchase by Tin Technology of the latest Dage XiDAT X-ray imaging equipment. This will be located at Tin Technology's new headquarters and laboratories situated at Curo Park near to St Albans (Plate 2).

Tom Perrett, Tin Technology Marketing Manager said, "This is much more than simply buying an X-ray machine. After exhaustive evaluation of the marketplace we chose Dage as our partner. Not only is the XiDAT range of machines at the forefront of digital technology, easy to operate and very robust, but the company is extremely pro-active and an ideal partner for us to work with. Together we will co-operate to educate users and provide industry with a facility to demonstrate and evaluate the equipment".

Adding ultra high resolution digital X-ray to its laboratory facilities gives Tin Technology a comprehensive range of test, measurement, and troubleshooting capabilities. These will be offered to customers through Tin Technology's Soldertec network which provides extensive information and support to the electronics sector, particularly in the area of lead-free soldering implementation.

As part of the contract the companies will hold joint seminars and the new facility at Curo Park will act as a Dage XiDAT machine demonstration centre. Feedback from Tin Technology will be used as part of the Dage product development programme.
