The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) has selected Carestream NDT’s INDUSTREX HPX-1 Plus Digital System to replace their previous computed radiography scanners. RCAF’s multi-system purchase of Carestream’s Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) equipment ensures they have advanced computed radiography (CR) assets for future deployment requirements.

Ideal for aerospace applications, the HPX-1 Plus Digital System is a full-width computed radiography reader capable of running extra-long imaging plates—up to 60 inches—with an imaging plate transport system specifically designed to help ensure longer life. It offers faster throughput on plates at high exposure, and has a wide dynamic range with high sensitivity, making it ideal for almost any type of imaging application.

The HPX-1 Plus Digital System enables users to shoot faster, and in some circumstances, reduce exposure time. The ability to maximize critical defect detection is key to players in the aerospace industry like the Royal Canadian Air Force,” said Don Thompson, U.S. & Canada Director of Marketing at Carestream. “We look forward to building our relationship with RCAF to help them meet their NDT needs.”

The HPX-1 Plus offers ultra-high resolution, with a pixel pitch of 25 µm, 35 µm, 50 µm and 100 µm, delivering quality images consistently and dependably. The system’s optics improve sensitivity and reduce unwanted artifacts, allowing users to fine-tune images for optimum capture.

HPX-1 Plus works with Carestream NDT’s award-winning INDUSTREX Digital Viewing Software with image process automation tools that help streamline the inspection process and increase production rates. The INDUSTREX software suite operates seamlessly across all Carestream NDT CR and digital radiography (DR) modalities.

Computer-aided design (CAD) and engineering firm CAD / CAM Services announced its exclusive partnership with Taiwan-based Microtek to release the NDT-2000 in North America. The NDT-2000 is a next-gen industrial film digitizer capable of offering high resolution images, while being specifically engineered for the non-destructive testing (NDT) radiography testing (RT) industry.
Until now, NDT professionals were forced to use film digitizers that were often problematic, including: slow scanning speed, overly-complicated software, and poor image quality. Not to mention these scanners typically failed to meet the ruggedness required for NDT work which is often done in the field. Additionally, DS class film digitizers are extremely expensive, yet tend to necessitate frequent service, calibration and maintenance requirements.

MilTouch Solutions, LLC ( has released the MilTouch™ High kV X-Ray Visible Scale for use in high kV radiographic non-destructive testing (NDT). This lead-free scale is available in four lengths, 3 inches (3"), 6 inches (6"), 15 centimeters (15 cm) and 12 inches (12"). It is designed to be visible next to plates of up to two inch (2") thickness under 300 kilovolts (kV). MilTouch™ High kV X-Ray Visible Scales meet the requirements for measurement scale comparators set forth in the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code for Nondestructive Examination.

"The MilTouch™ High kV X-Ray Visible Scales fill a void in the non-destructive testing industry," says MilTouch Solutions, LLC President, Lauren Zimmer. "There are many radiopaque rulers on the market, but few, if any, are lead-free and visible at high kV next to products being tested with a relative thickness above one inch."
The High kV X-Ray Visible Scale serves as a known dimensional comparator and is placed on the imaging plate prior to processing, providing dimensions on the projected image. This scale is then used to interpret dimensions as stated in ASME-V-2019, VIII-287.1.c.
