    NDE 4.0 Podcast - Norbert Meyendorf, Founding Father of the NDE 4.0 Movement

    NDE 4.0 Podcast - Norbert Meyendorf, Founding Father of the NDE 4.0 Movement

    In this episode of the NDE 4.0 Podcast, we interview Dr. Norbert Meyendorf, whom many consider the founding father of the NDE 4.0 movement. In fact, Dr. Meyendorf actually coined the term "NDE 4.0" back in 2016.  In this podcast episode, Dr. Meyendorf, formerly the department head and branch director at the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing in Germany for more than 20 years, reveals the origins of the NDE 4.0 movement, its evolution, and the benefits provided to NDT organizations in its current iteration.

    Until his retirement in 2018, Meyendorf was a professor in the aerospace engineering program at Iowa State University and Deputy Director at the Center for Nondestructive Evaluation in Ames, Iowa. He has edited several books, and he's the author or co-author of numerous journal articles and is the editor in chief of the Journal of NDE published by Springer. Dr. Meyendorf continues to teach as adjunct faculty at Iowa State, the University of Dayton, and the University of Dresden in Germany.

    NDE 4.0 Podcast - Dave Seto, Business Development Manager, Software Engineer - UTEX Scientific Instruments

    In this episode of the NDE 4.0 Podcast, we interview Dave Seto, business development manager at UTEX Scientific Instruments, based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Dave has presented and published on the topics of fermentation of unconventional biomass, distillation as a means of waste reduction, and most recently on inspection automation for NDT.

    During his career with UTEX Scientific, Dave designed novel ultrasonic probes, engineered automated scanning systems, and has developed customized software for automating inspections in metals production, aerospace, and nuclear power generation industries. Dave has a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Waterloo.

    Dave's company, UTEX Scientific, helps industrial inspection and NDT companies automate their inspections with scanning systems, software, and high-performance ultrasonic instruments.

    In this podcast episode, Dave discusses how companies can make better use of their NDE / NDT data. He also talks about how moving to NDE 4.0 technologies is more of a process and a direction rather than a single linear progression.
