Spotlight on United Infrared

May 11th, 2017

Infrared can be a great element to complement ultrasound testing. That's the realm of another one of our Silver Sponsors, United Infrared – a complete service provider, consultant and training company. Rob Miller will be representing the organization at this year's conference, and we took some time to get his initial thoughts on the event and United Infrared's role there.

A partner for all things infrared

More than anything, Rob wants to emphasize that United Infrared is the No. 1 training company and a total service provider for infrared needs. Whether that's offering training and equipment sales directly or referring a technician to a service provider that can get them what the need, United Infrared is primarily committed to discovering the best possible solution for the company in need.

These days, most of the excitement around infrared training involves drones – a relatively new market that is only likely to grow more popular by the year. Rob's team has developed a new package that trainees can purchase to learn about moisture inspection, solar fields and other drone testing applications.

The Cadillac of conferences

Ask Rob what he thinks about Ultrasound World and Reliable Asset World, and he's quick to point out that the conferences are the Cadillac of the reliability industry. 

"We run our own infrared conference," Rob explained, "and I tell people, 'When we grow up, we want to be like Ultrasound World.'"

But what makes the conference a good fit for infrared – and other reliability centered maintenance providers? It starts with the people. Everyone at the conference, no matter the industry, business size or experience, faces to same sorts of problems in terms of maintenance and reliability. There's a good mix of big and small players, or new faces and conference veterans.

As a veteran himself, Rob's advice for first-timers is to take full advantage of the people there. Make sure to talk to the guy next to an interesting piece of technology – he might have invented it!

And of course, be sure to stop by the United Infrared booth at Ultrasound World VIII and Reliable Asset World III.
