Montreal, QC — ITM Instruments Inc., Ste-Anne-De-Bellevue, QC, and FLIR Canada of Burlington, ON, hosted a free event at the ITM head office on September 5, 2012, with 45 visitors spending the day with the ITM team and participating in many activities. The events included a guided tour that gave attendees the opportunity to see ITM’s facilities, including its calibration and repair laboratories.

Seminars, technical sessions and several hands-on activities were available throughout the day. Participants had the choice of selecting two out of four of the following seminar topics: building inspection, security and automation, research and development, or industrial inspection.

The event also included a tabletop show featuring products from FLIR, Extech Instruments, Phantom, Retrotec and GMI (Gas Measurement Instruments). Attendees were able to view the newest products as well as see several demonstrations. Both ITM and supplier experts were on hand to answer questions.

As well, FLIR brought along its four-room demonstration trailer, where participants had the opportunity to test out the company’s thermal imaging cameras. Each room had different scenarios of situations for the thermal imaging cameras to detect, including:

1. Building inspection: locate water leaks and missing insulation
