GDS Instruments Collaboration with NGI

Technical Advisor Nick Warren and Managing Director Karl Snelling from GDS Instruments recently visited the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) in Oslo, where they received a warm welcome from Morten and his team.

This visit marked a significant milestone in the collaborative relationship between GDS and NGI, as NGI had just received a delivery of 20 custom-designed stainless steel triaxial cells tailored to their rigorous specifications. These cells are currently being used for the majority of NGI's commercial testing.

The primary purpose of the visit was to explore the potential of these cells for new customers. During the visit, discussions also focused on developing a larger cell with a similar design and the potential for future orders.

Additionally, the visit provided an opportunity to demonstrate the features of GDSLAB v2024 first hand, highlighting the benefits of the new software. GDS was able to assist with any technical support questions, ensuring that clients can maximise the use of the products and maintain smooth operations.

The development of the new triaxial cells is a proud achievement for GDS Instruments. Crafted entirely from stainless steel, these cells feature a zero-dead-volume design, enhancing the precision and reliability of geotechnical testing. The design includes user-friendly features that streamline sample preparation, making the cells both advanced in functionality and convenient for practical use.

NGI has expressed satisfaction with the performance and quality of the triaxial cells. Another visit will take place to follow up in the near future.
