Automotive engineering has become the most important industry in many countries after the invention of the automobile in 1885 by Carl Benz, and especially after the development of mass production by Henry Ford.

Similar to the aerospace industry, environmental compatibility and increased efficiency through weight saving are the top challenges for new developments.

NDT minimizes the risk at the expense of safety. Increasingly fast, high-resolution inspection systems deliver recognizable material properties down to the smallest detail, not only as defect recognition but also for process optimization.
