President's Message

D.J. Varde President, ISNT

Dear colleagues,

I am happy to know that the National Conference of ISNT “NDE 2017” and Exhibition has been organized at Chennai in Dec. 2017. I understand that the efforts are being made to make this event a mega event visible to the international NDT community and professionals by showcasing the developments and opportunities of NDT in India.

Worldwide, Non Destructive Testing science is being practiced seriously by most of the progressive industries. The credit goes to the new emerging techniques and developments in conventional techniques with the help of modern electronics and robotics.

The fast and accurate analysis of enormous data by computer software's have resulted into quick and reliable interpretation of data and hence the more acceptance in the industry.

Once upon a time, only a quality control tool NDT has now been considered as part of business economics. It has helped improved productivity in various industrial sectors. The Life assessment of ageing plants and extension of Plant life has considerably changed the status of NDT in the modern competitive industrial environment. However the developments taking place & assimilation of these developments in the industry needs to be fast. I am sure that this seminar will make an attempt to bridge this widening gap.

This National seminar “NDE 2017” will bring great opportunities and benefits to all the NDT professionals who are expected to participate in this mega event in large numbers. Chennai Chapter of ISNT is one of the most active chapter conducting many technical events for the benefit of NDT community at large. My best wishes to Chennai team for the great success for this seminar
