NDE 4.0 Workshop

Learn Why, What and How of Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE)

Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) 4.0 Workshop

Learn Why, What and How of NDE 4.0

The emerging technical reality, including Industry 4.0 (the fourth industrial revolution), is based on digitalization, informatization, networking, and collaboration. It thrives on using data for feedback loops to improve production, design, and products. Although too early to have data-based evidence of digitalization as a strategic advantage, the early indicators are that COVID is accelerating the adaption of digital technologies. To some of us, it appears as if we just woke up in the year 2025, having to catch up really fast with everything becoming remote and contactless.

The inspection sector is no different. Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) is one of the largest and most valuable data sources in a product life cycle. Industry 4.0 is making it even more powerful and valuable, in the form we call NDE 4.0.
