Core Bit Challenge a winner

15 July 2019

Can you win the Core Bit Challenge? That was the question facing visitors to MGS’s stand at Geotechnica last week.

The test was to identify the correct core bit for different ground conditions. Up for grabs were Core Bit Challenge polo shirts and caps to prove who knows their rocks!

“It was a bit of fun and turned out to be really popular. It also gave visitors the chance to see close-up some of the core bits we supply,” said Technical Sales Engineer Chris White.

Also on the stand was the Pagani TG63-150 CPTu rig and TGAS-08 which, together with the new MGS DataHub, transfer data from the field direct to Keynetix Cloud. The rig is then going to Brunel University, in a partnership between MGS and Pagani, where it will be used as part of education, technical development and research.

Also on show was the Tecop TEC 130/130 RAM SPT unit.

The stand was designed to showcase the four cornerstones of MGS’s site investigation business.

Geotechnica is the UK’s largest Geotechnical Conference and exhibition and took place at the Warwickshire Event Centre.
