Nondestructive monitoring along the product life cycle for reliable products

As an internationally renowned R&D center for nondestructive testing methods (NDT) Fraunhofer IZFP does research and development work for nondestructive monitoring in the field of materials, component, and product characterization. The institute develops industrial-grade high-performance system solutions to prototype and series maturity, covering the entire range of nondestructive inspection methods aligned to industry-specific product life cycles, from which we derive the current challenges our customers and partners face. The institute’s scientists, engineers, and technicians compile application-oriented monitoring solutions to enhance the quality of our customers’ products, starting with process-integrated sensors up to Materials Data Space applications.
