Joe Vitulli

Joe Vitulli is an Electrical Engineer with BS and MS degrees, who began his career by designing test instrumentation, industrial machinery, and medical devices. These designs covered both analog and digital circuitry as well as software development. His NDT experience includes designing Eddy Current (rotary and coil based) and Magnetic Flux Leakage Systems (rotary and stationary).

As the solutions became more complex, he recognized that most technical documentation was dry – causing the reader to quickly lose interest, but by utilizing technology, information can be presented in a manner conducive to learning.  Using this approach, he has developed training courses for various products and courses.

As CEO of Magnetic Analysis Corporation, a world-class provider of NDT equipment and systems, Joe met with tubing and pipe manufacturers throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. He  believes that “The design is not finished until the customer has a product that is installed, operating correctly, and earning money.”

Building on his experience in Operations, Manufacturing, and Engineering, Joe identifies the root cause of problems and partners with business owners to develop strategies that develop personnel, optimize processes, and improve products. Understanding the needs of his clients is critical to creating successful solutions.
