GE Inspection Technologies Commended by Frost & Sullivan for Leading the Industrial Computed Tomography Market with 22% Share

The company offers several configurations and optional tools to help customers achieve production throughput goals with extreme accuracy

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — March 28, 2019 — Based on its recent analysis of the global industrial computed tomography (CT) solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes GE Inspection Technologies, part of Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE IT),  with the 2019 Market Leadership Award for capturing 22% of the market share. The company covers major industries such as electronics, automotive, oil & gas, power, additives, aerospace and aviation. BHGE IT’s commitment to innovation and access to advanced technologies enable it to deliver an automated in-line CT suite and to support the transition of customers’ production line to CT systems.

“BHGE IT transforms CT solutions with its phoenix v│tome│x m 300 and phoenix v│tome│x c 450 by combining the low artifact, high-precision performance of traditional fan beam CT with the increased speed of cone beam CT. This unique solution improves the precision of failure analysis and three-dimensional (3D) metrology inspection tasks with up to 100 times more throughput,” said Mariano Kimbara, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “As the world’s first microCT system to use scatter│correct, dynamic 41│100 detector and high-flux│target, the phoenix v│tome│x m 300 produces quality premium CT solutions that decrease overall inspection times while producing quality results in just a few minutes.”

Meanwhile, BHGE IT’s latest dynamic 41│100 detector combines superior image quality and detection speed for dimensional metrology. With a detection area of 405 x 405 millimeters (16” x 16”) and pixel size of 100 micrometers, the flat panel detector has 16 megapixels, resulting in enhanced image quality, sensitivity, and detection speed, all based on the latest GE Healthcare photodiode technology. The company tailored this new detector generation exclusively for non-destructive testing (NDT) X-ray applications and features with the phoenix product line.

BHGE Inspection Technologies is revolutionizing 3D inspection and dimensional control with its fully automated in-line CT speed│scan CT 64. Its ability to scan and evaluate hundreds of large light metal castings each day in under a minute per component ensures consistency, minimizes defects, and optimizes outputs with 3D automated defect recognition (3D speed│ADR).

“As a globally recognized company with broad experience, BHGE Inspection Technologies gains considerable traction for its product line phoenix|x-ray” noted Kimbara. “With the expansion of its premium CT portfolio, its expertise in digital solutions to help test, measure, monitor, analyze, and optimize production has positioned BHGE Inspection Technologies as a market leader in the CT solutions market.”

“We are excited to receive the coveted award as the market leaders in the CT industry by F&S”, commented Nicola Jannis, CEO of BHGE IT. “This is a very special year to receive the award as we celebrate 20 years of the phoenix|x-ray brand in the CT industry, and we are experiencing a significant growth which presents both opportunities and challenges so this award is very encouraging.
