NDT Imaging of Components: What benefit for mechanical industry?

“NDT imaging of components: what benefit for mechanical Industry?”


Industrial companies are currently facing new challenges to guaranty the fitness for purpose of mechanical components, in the context of the increase of security requirements and the ageing of already installed structures.

Some of the industries aim to perform NDT during the manufacture, others in maintenance during the life of the component. Imaging NDT techniques bring new solutions making easier the testing of the components.

More, a new way of applying NDT consists of the development of « IOT » measurement tools. The presentation gives elements about the technological state of imaging NDT and its connection with the IOT approach


-Evolution of Industrial needs: production, maintenance, failure analysis

-Evolutions of 2D and 3D NDT imaging techniques in X-ray, ultrasonic, and thermal infrared for defect detection

-Examples of Tomographic and Radio tomographic reconstruction

-Example of on-line integration of thermal infrared testing on forged components

-The development of non-contacting ultrasonic techniques

-Imaging NDT techniques for characterization of materials (stress, microstructure…)

-The development of IOT-NDT solutions
