New Standard

A new standardized practice (E3147) from the committee will be used to help evaluate, verify, and validate whether a system complies with DICONDE interoperability. It applies to radiographic, ultrasonic, and eddy current examination instruments and systems. Ferro notes that the standard aims to help archiving and perform analytics for various types of NDT data coming from many inspection system vendors, …

“Connect-a-thon” Events

The nondestructive testing committee (E07) is holding biannual “connect-a-thon” events for those who use “digital imaging and communication in nondestructive evaluation” (DICONDE). These open forums — held in conjunction with the committee’s regular January and June meetings — allow DICONDE software developers to network and learn from each other. “Many NDT system providers have found success validating their interoperability with …

Nondestructive Testing Committee Supports Data Interoperability with New Standard

Biannual collaborative events and a new standard are helping companies that make or use nondestructive testing (NDT) equipment with their efforts to evaluate whether those systems have interoperable data that can be shared and analyzed. These efforts ultimately help support safety and performance of products and parts for industries such as aerospace, automotive, energy, rail, and other manufacturing fields.
