DIMATE Developing AI Module for Plant Inspections

DIMATE GmbH, November 16, 2023

In a significant breakthrough, DIMATE has announced the development of a revolutionary artificial intelligence (AI) module designed to enhance non-destructive evaluation (NDE) in plants. This innovative module is poised to automate the detection of plant components in NDE radiographic testing (RT) images, subsequently selecting the correct inspection instructions and determining the residual wall thickness of pipes with high accuracy at the correct test measuring locations (TML).

"Our new AI module represents a leap forward in the non-destructive testing field," said a spokesperson for DIMATE. "By harnessing the power of AI, we aim to provide faster, more precise, and more efficient integrity assessments of plant components. This technology is not just about keeping up with industry trends; it's about setting new benchmarks for safety and reliability in energy plants."

The potential benefits of this advancement are far-reaching. With a more precise and efficient method for inspecting plant components, operators can expect an improvement in the longevity and safety of their assets. This not only enhances the performance and reliability of energy plants but also plays a crucial role in preventive maintenance, ultimately contributing to the sector's overall sustainability. While the details of the AI module's capabilities are proprietary, DIMATE assures that the innovative features will redefine the protocols of asset integrity verification. The company anticipates that the integration of AI in NDE will accelerate inspection times, reduce human error, and lead to substantial cost savings for energy providers.

DIMATE reports that they are already in contact with leading plant operators in the energy sector and are coordinating a proof of concept for their NDE solution with AI plug-in.


DIMATE is a software technology company based in Germany and supports the energy industry from upstream to downstream up to clean energy in the digitalization of testing and inspection processes. To learn more and stay up-to-date with DIMATE's future developments, visit
