Innovation in Non Destructive Testing


File Size: 3.65 Mb

Description
Today innovation is no longer an activity that is performed by a dedicated department in a company, or left to knowledge institutes. Being innovative is now a core competence of successful companies. In many established companies, however, the pace of innovation is low. The Non-Destructive Testing sector is an example of a sector where the pace of innovation is very slow.

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) refers to the set of non-invasive activities used to determine the condition of objects or installations without causing any damage. Many of the technologies used in NDT are also used in medical diagnosis, for example X-Ray photos and ultrasonic echoes. In NDT, however, they are used on plants, pipelines, bridges, aeroplanes, etc. While the medical sector is struggling with the fact that innovation is slow, innovation in NDT is even slower. On average, it takes 30 years to bring a new technology from idea to a commercial success.
