The rich heritage of phoenix|x-ray inspection systems began in 1999, with a team of X-ray luminaries working in a double garage in Wunstorf, Germany. After rapidly rising to recognition as leading innovators in high resolution 2D X-ray inspection systems, the phoenix|x-ray team invented the first industrial nano-focus X-ray tube in 2001.
While 2D X-ray inspection offered new competencies, it was unable to display overlapping parts separately and allow non-destructive measurements of hidden surfaces -- capabilities available solely via computed tomography (CT). In 2001, however, CT scanning was only feasible via immense constructions in large scientific laboratories. In 2003, phoenix|x-ray began closing the gap with a high resolution industrial CT system, the phoenix v|tome|x (vee-tomex) product family under the brand name Seifert.
In 2007, GE Inspection Technologies – now part of Baker Hughes, a GE Company -- acquired phoenix|x-ray. By combining GE’s high resolution inspection and industrial CT technology range with Seifert’s high power mini-focus X-ray inspection business, a powerhouse of comprehensive industrial X-ray inspection and CT solutions was born, now known as the x|plore industrial X-ray and CT product line.
GE’s Inspection Technologies’ CT business was lauded with Frost & Sullivan’s 2019 Best Practice Award for Global Industrial CT Solutions Market Leader and Frost & Sullivan’s 2016 Company of the Year Award. GE’s business headquarters, including R&D, product management, sales, inspection services, Customer Solutions Center (CSC) and several production plants are located in Wunstorf, near Hannover in northern Germany, with many other CSC’s around the globe.
