Dr. Konrad Reber
Director of Research and Development

Konrad Reber studied physics at the University of Mainz. In a Ph.D. thesis at the material science department of the University of Erlangen, he worked in the field of magnetic materials. At Pipetronix he was responsible for the development of data analysis algorithms for the application to MFL-pipeline inspections. This included methods of artificial intelligence for analysis automation. Later he also became responsible for the magnetic design of MFL-inspection pigs. After changing to NDT Systems & Services he continued to work in the field of in-line inspection and broadened his focus to include topics of defect assessment and general comparison methods of different inspection tools. Between 2006 and 2008 he was with TUVRheinland as an expert within the Pipeline Technology Group. He was responsible for international projects on pipeline integrity and pipeline certification. Since 2008 he is head of research and development for the Innospection Group. The department is responsible for designing new inspection equipment of the Oil and Gas industry. The focus is on- and offshore applications of the eddy current technology. He is busy in delivering speeches on conferences and is a trainer in various courses on pipeline inspection.
