Automation and Artificial Intelligence

for non-destructive testing and industrial inspections.

We believe that digital transformation and technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) are the key to achieve this goal, as it can combine the knowledge of many inspectors and make decisions in less than a second.

Our Mission. What we strive for...

The fastest and most reliable inspections.

Inspections are required in a wide range of industries, from heavy industry to e-mobility. The main focus here is on non-destructive testing, which not only prevents quality fluctuations and complaints, but also ensures the necessary level of safety. Unfortunately, the test results are not always clear. That is why more than one pair of eyes usually checks whether everything is going right, or one gets a second opinion from a colleague.

But it is exactly this process that quickly becomes a bottleneck in many companies, because often both testing staff and inspection service companies are working at extremely high capacity.

Therefore, we offer our customers software solutions with which they can automate or improve their inspection processes. We believe that an evaluation by a computer – whether alone or as an assistance system – can increase the safety, accuracy and speed of the evaluation.


This AI is 94.4% faster. *

How fast can you count the porosities in this weld?
A human takes about 9 seconds. The computer takes a few milliseconds. Can you imagine the speed up if the complete image evaluation of takes a human 9 minutes?

*Example: 9s for human counting, 0.5s for AI and displaying results. Results may differ depending on image resolution, quality, hardware, network and more.

Get in touch.

For all who believe in technology, we will find a way to work together. Regardless of where you are at in digitization, we will help you to evaluate and implement digital solutions that suit your current needs.

May it be archiving and digitization of data and reports, automating already existing inspection processes or the creation new high-value services based on technology. We are happy to support you.

If you don’t believe in the potential of AI and digitization you may get yourself trained with one of our management courses.

Our Software

Simplify and accelerate testing processes with our software, the sentin EXPLORER. Use ready-made algorithms or configure the recognition as you need it.

To get off to a successful start working with AI, we usually begin to work with our customers as part of a development project.

Our customers use the artificial intelligence (AI) of our software as a digital colleague who can count units in fractions of a second, check for defects and detect pattern deviations.

Our product stands for reliability and accuracy so that our partners can test & evaluate faster and safer – no matter whether you want to display the evaluations in the sentin EXPLORER or integrate the algorithms into existing test systems or software solutions.
