Complimentary Lunch

X-ray and CT Scanning in the Context of Industry 4.0
Speaker: Rahul Alreja, VJ Technologies

Abstract: In today’s world, delivering quality products to end-users is absolutely critical.  Social media and the internet have made knowledge instantaneous and pervasive, and a misstep or flaw can cause catastrophic damage to a company – reputations that have taken years to make can come crashing down in days, if not hours.  Emerging technologies (such as Big Data and Blockchain) are being adopted and harnessed to dynamically (and automatically) alter quality.  Drawing upon some real-world examples from different industries, this session will explore the future of quality and the role that NDE, and more specifically, x-ray plays in it.
