nac Image Technology is pleased to announce the appointment of Kent Peterson as Regional Sales Manager for nac High-Speed Imaging Systems in the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, North & South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Illinois.
Kent brings a strong background in industrial sales to his position, having worked with nac Image Technology and other remote vision inspection equipment product lines since 1998. His background began in Nondestructive Testing where Kent learned about imaging requirements for research & development documentation along with the need for capturing high-speed images for analysis.
In addition to his work in industrial sales, Kent has been employed by Goodrich Aerospace in the Failure Analysis Lab. His responsibilities included the evaluation of products for NASA, military and commercial aircraft products - where extreme quality standards and strong attention to detail are a requirement.
Kent’s past endeavors have set the bar for his own expectations. Kent maintains that these high expectations will be a benefit to customers looking for the “perfect fit” in a high speed camera. He has found that not only do nac’s products meet a high industry standard, but that they also exceed those standards. With the knowledge that nac has provided quality and reliability since 1958, Kent can confidently state that “when it comes to reliable, digital, high quality high speed camera systems, make the safe choice with nac and you’ll see the visible difference in your business!”

Soon after the production of commercial automobiles, the need arose to develop a means of gathering and analyzing information on the effects of automobile accidents on human bodies. Most sources agree that “Sierra Sam” was the first crash test dummy. The idea for studying the effects of a crash on the human body originated in the late 1940s when the U.S. Air Force studied the safety of the aircraft ejection seats. A 200-pound male dummy developed by Sierra Engineering was used to evaluate the ejection seats in tests, but he was not much more than a mannequin and the researchers were not able to gather all the data they wanted. As a result, the Air Force sought human volunteers.
Crash test dummies are full scale replicas of human beings. Read more on the history of crash test dummies……and the crash test dummy “family”…
