Can robots help you perform NDT inspections?

Join us on Thursday, February 27, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET for a live webinar and Q&A session on the use of artificially intelligent robots in NDT, presented by Yoseph Bar-Cohen, Ph.D.

Inspired by science fiction, humanlike robots are becoming an engineering reality and, in the future, can aid or even replace human inspectors, especially in harsh and hazardous environments. The industrial use of robots has been the result of the need to deal with parts that are too complex to handle by a simple automatic system. Autonomous robots can potentially address the need to inspect structures with configurations that are not predetermined. In this webinar, you’ll come away with a better understanding of how biometric technologies are being used to make robots and the outlook for their future operation as NDT inspectors.

Dr. Yoseph Bar-Cohen is a Senior Research Scientist and a Group Supervisor at Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL). His research is focused on electroactive mechanisms and biomimetics. He has edited and coauthored 10 books, co-authored over 450 publications, and registered 38 patents. For his contributions to the field of artificial muscles, Business Week named him in April 2003 one of five technology gurus who are “Pushing Tech's Boundaries.” He has earned two NASA Honor Award Medals and two SPIE’s Lifetime Achievement Awards, among many others. He is a Fellow of two technical societies: ASNT and SPIE.

Reduce sizing errors of your UT inspections!

Join us on Thursday, April 23, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET for a live webinar and Q&A session on the proper use of the 6 dB drop technique, presented by Paul Holloway of Holloway NDT & Engineering Inc.

In the ultrasonic testing of welds, the 6 dB drop technique is commonly used as a way to size the length of discontinuities. However, the technique is often misapplied, which can result in multiple smaller discontinuities remaining after repairs. This is frustrating for both welders and inspectors alike. This webinar will review how any dB drop technique can result in sizing errors and discuss the proper application of the 6 dB drop technique, as well as its application to common codes such as AWS D1.1 and ASME V.

Paul Holloway, President of Holloway NDT & Engineering Inc., is a Professional Engineer and UT Level 3 based out of Ontario, Canada. He specializes in ultrasonic testing field services, calibration block design, R&D related to advanced ultrasonic inspection techniques, and NDT training and consulting. He regularly publishes articles for industry journals and now hosts his own YouTube channel related to UT. He has a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Waterloo and received the inaugural Professional of the Year Award in 2019 from the Canadian Institute of NDE.

Open up your NDT horizons with digital radiography!

Join us on Thursday, June 25, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET for a live webinar and Q&A session on advancements in digital radiography, presented by Sebastian Fernandes.

In the field of radiography, conventional film/screen radiography is continuously being replaced by digital imaging methods (such as storage phosphor plates and flat detectors). First applied in radioscopy systems for airport security, digital imaging has found applications within medical diagnostics and relatively recently in industry.

This presentation will cover technical aspects and personnel competency requirements of digital radiography. You will come away with a better understanding of the many advantages of this digital technology, including:

  • decreasing costs and lower environmental impact relative to film radiography
  • increased spatial resolution and latitude
  • decreased exposure/dose values
  • faster direct readouts
  • automatic defect recognition
  • immediate availability of high-quality images

Sebastian Fernandes has been a member of ASNT since 1986 and completed his Bachelor of Technology in Metallurgical Engineering from IIT Bombay in 1979. He subsequently completed a Master’s Degree in Quality Management. He holds ASNT NDE Level III certification in seven methods and ISO 9712 NDE Level III, approved by the British Institute of NDT in addition to CSWIP Level 3 in UT Phased Array and ToFD. He has been working in NDT Quality Control and Assurance for more than 40 years and has served on the ISNT Board of Examiners from 1986–89. At present, he serves on the Certification Management Council of ASNT. He is the Secretary/Treasurer of the ASNT UAE Section and a member of ASNT Board of Directors. He has conducted several training programs in NDT and currently operates as a technical consultant
