Digital Imaging and Ultrasonics for NDT 2018

Foxwoods Resort
Mashantucket, CT
24 - 26 July 2018

Topical Chair – Bob Feole, Feole Technologies
Technical Program Chairs – Fred Morro, VJ Technologies, Larry Mullins, NXT NdT Inc.; Ed Cabral, Sonatest Ltd.; Vijay Alreja, VJ Technologies

The Digital Imaging and Ultrasonics for NDT Conferences are combining!

Based on attendee feedback, we are merging the two programs into one, comprehensive NDT Conference, covering both methods and technologies.

The X-ray inspection system market is expected to be worth USD 860.5 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.51% between 2017 and 2023. The digital imaging technique is expected to hold a larger share of this market during the forecast period. The global ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment market will grow steadily during the next two years and post a CAGR of almost 6% by 2020.

These two volumetric methods are related yet different. The DI/UT 2018 ASNT Topical Conference will cover the basic fundamentals as well as the latest developments of each NDT method, providing one forum for sharing the respective pros and cons.
