International Conference on NDE 4.0

NDE 4.0: Enabling your journey !

Industry 4.0 is the ongoing fourth industrial revolution, based on digitisation, crosslinking and networks and lives on data for its feedback loops and one of its biggest and most valuable data sources is NDE. Industry 4.0 leads to an improved production and design by analysing the data stored in digital twins and provided by the industrial internet of things. Measures like artificial intelligence, big data processing, or augmented reality allow to evaluate and visualise the data. Blockchains allow ensuring modification-proof storage and traceability and 5G the wireless connections needed by Industry 4.0.

This will lead to big changes in NDE. First, the Industry 4.0 emerging technologies can be used to enhance NDE technologies and NDE data processing. Second, a statistical analysis of NDE data provides insight into reliability, inspection performance, training status, consistency, and value of the inspections. Finally, NDE is the ideal data source for Industry 4.0.

This first conference on NDE 4.0 is devoted promoting a broad exchange on all subjects regarding NDE 4.0. The conference provides a unique opportunity for users, scientists, equipment suppliers and all who are interested to discuss the following topics to seek their way into the world of NDE 4.0:

The virtual part of the conference was succesfully held in April 2021.

For the face-to-face conference, 24 - 26 October 2022 in Berlin, please submit your abstract until 31 March 2022.
Presentations addressing the topics mentioned above and considering any NDE methods proposed such as thermal imaging, eddy current, ultrasonics, optics, x-ray testing and many others will be most welcome.
Opportunities for technical visits to relevant IIoT companies are planned.

We are looking forward to meeting you first visually and second in Berlin.

Excursion to the Berlin Center for Digital Tansformation
on Thursday, 27 October 2022, 1/2 day 

The four Fraunhofer Institutes FOKUS, HHI, IPK and IZM bundle their expertise in the fields of information and communication technologies (ICT), data processing, production and microelectronics in the Berlin Centre for Digital Transformation. In this Centre engineers and research fellows develop technologies and solutions that take into account the increasing digitization and networking of all areas of life. It conducts research on basic and cross-sectional technologies. 

During our excursion to the Berlin Centre for Digital Transformation, you will be able to get a hands-on experience of the current research results from the fields of

  • Sensors & Cyberphysical Systems
  • Internet of Things & Blockchain
  • 5G Infrastructure & Communication
  • Industry 4.0 with collaborative robots
  • Digital twins for processes, factories, and products

The excursion is scheduled for 27 October 2022, from morning until early afternoon. The detailed planning depends on the number of interested participants.
If you are interested in the excursion to the Berlin Center for Digital Transformation please send us an e-mail including your contact data to
