“Since 1952 the best products and instruments for non destructive testing”

NDT ITALIANA - products and instruments for non destructive testing

Ndt Italiana


It's 1952. Angela Cevenini already had in her resume the useful experiences of working as a manager secretary in a multinational company and a long period spent in London in an import-export society when, as she came back to Italy, she joined the mechanical factory her father started in the after-war years.
Those were the years of the birth of the very first needs for quality, due to new materials and production methods coming in from the United States.
With astonishing foreseeing, daring and perseverance (especially when we think how it is hard for a woman to be accepted in the working world) Angela started importing innovative technical products, among which were the first liquid penetrants ever used in Italy.
A brief anecdotic will give you an idea of those pioneer years.
Angela used to say that, after managing to get an appointment in a big factory, and personally showing how liquid penetrants were able to find defects with clear red indications on the sample, the engineers sent for the boss to show him the results.
But to her greatest astonishment, a minute later she found herself at the door with the words: "Miss, of course we do not want to show defects! When you called on the phone, we thought you were coming to present a way to hide them."
The Angela Cevenini Award, a tribute to her donation to The Italian Welding Institute, is awarded every year to the best student of their ndt courses.
