Mission & Vision


Mission: The Research Center for Non Destructive Testing GmbH (RECENDT) provides a range of services which incorporates the whole R&D process chain and stretches from application-oriented fundamental research to the development of state-of-the-art technology for industrial applications. RECENDT implements customized, high-tech solutions in the fields of material characterization and non-destructive materials testing. The interdisciplinary team consists of physicists, chemists, mechatronics engineers, and development engineers with state-of-the-art equipment at their disposal which enables them to contribute to the success of the business in various branches.


Vision: RECENDT researches and develops optoacoustic measuring methods for tasks and problems in the field of materials characterization, non-destructive materials testing and process analysis. The researchers at RECENDT develop and use cutting-edge technologies to gain information about the structure and properties of a wide range of materials. These technologies can, for example, detect cracks and defects in products without the need for contact with the material or destroying it. Spectroscopic methods are used to gain real-time information about chemical processes or in the food industry.
