There is an increasing demand in industry for automatic inline quality control systems. Such systems require a certain number of conditions be satisfied, whereby the ability to process the incoming data in real-time is one of the most important. This paper first outlines the requirements posed to automatic NDE (non-destructive evaluation) systems. We present our general approach of the structure of such systems with focus on fast and whenever necessary parallel data processing. Finally we present two example applications in the field of radioscopic inspection. The first one covers the control of die castings, the second describes a system for automatic detection of contaminations in industrially produced food.
