Welcome to the World of NDE 4.0

Industrie 4.0 is the ongoing fourth industrial revolution, based on digitization, digitalization, digital transformation, informatization, crosslinking, networks, and in particular collaboration and lives on data for its feedback loops to enhance production, design, and products. One of its biggest and most valuable data sources is nondestructive evaluation (NDE) / nondestructive material testing (NDT).

The new social reality caused by COVID-19 is a disruption of society and demands a steep acceleration of the new technical reality. Up until December 2019 the emerging technical reality, including Industry 4.0, was about obtaining a competitive advantage. Now it is about survival. The need for efficiency, cost savings, resiliency, agility, switch and adapt, cyber-physical decisions, and using data requires fully digitized processes and training of people to operate in those new processes. It now requires a change of mindset. Companies will have to blend defensive tactics with an offensive and innovative strategy. In addition to asking “Why?” they will have to step into unchartered territory and ask, “Why not?”. They will have to switch from proprietary to a collaborative mode of problem-solving.

In this YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/nde40), the world of NDE and Industrie 4.0 is introduced. NDE 4.0 describes both all the current activities to use Industrie 4.0 measures / emerging technologies for NDE and to enable the use of NDE data for Industrie 4.0. This includes the emerging technologies, like the industrial internet of things, digital twin, artificial intelligence, blockchains, 5G, big data processing, augmented reality, ... and their use for Industrie 4.0 and NDE 4.0. Along with information about the different NDE methods.

In upcoming videos, the following will be discussed:

  1. The various NDE (non-destructive testing) methods
  2. The four industrial revolutions and the four NDE revolutions
  3. The basics and the WHY, HOW and WHAT of the fourth revolutions
  4. The emerging technologies connected with Industrie 4.0
  5. How Industrie 4.0 can benefit from NDE and vice versa
  6. The impact of the new reality
  7. Moreover, guests will be invited to share their knowledge and we will do regular Q&A videos to answer your questions.

The following NDE 4.0 videos are already published:

In addition, several videos about ultrasonic testing have been published:
