Interview: Mr. Matthias Purschke
This month, we had the great honor to be able to interview Dr. Purschke, President of the 19th WCNDT conference taking place in Munich.

Dear Dr. Purschke, it seems that before being president of the WCNDT you have had many functions in the NDT field. Could you let us know what were your motivations to move from a technical expert position within the R&D department at GE to a position at the DGZfP? Don’t you miss the technique? Read More.

CIVA Tip: Subtraction

Subtraction in CIVA

  Since CIVA 2015.a, the subtraction between two signals is available from the “Signal processing” icon in the analysis bar. Clicking on this icon opens a postprocessing window, with the “Envelope” processing type defined by default. To access to the other processing types, click on “Envelope”, and the whole list will appear. Select “Subtraction” and the appropriate window opens. Now, as in the previous CIVA versions, you can directly delimit the signal to remove on the reference signal A-scan. The output signal A-scan will be interactively modified. Read more.
