GE Inspection Technologies celebrates the 70th anniversary of Agfa’s renowned STRUCTURIX industrial X-ray films with launch of free app and new film website showcasing historic facts and illustrations
Berchem, Belgium – August 4, 2014 – GE’s (NYSE: GE) Measurement and Control announced today the launch of a new radiography exposure mobile app that allows for nondestructive X-ray and Isotope exposure calculations in just a matter of seconds. Customers can download the GE Film Exposure Calculator app (available for both iOS and Android devices) directly from our newly designed film web page. While there, users can view the impressive 70-year history of STRUCTURIX told through interesting facts and illustrations.
The GE Film Exposure Calculator was developed to provide customers quick and easy access to the information that matters most when calculating waiting time for film exposure. It allows users to make calculations on the fly, in the field, using their mobile phone or tablet – ultimately reducing the possibility for error. The app is easy to use for both Isotopes and X-rays with measurement fields including:
Once all data points mentioned above are entered into the app, the calculator provides a near instant estimate of exposure time. Users can also opt to save X-ray and Isotope measurement calculations to “favorites” for quicker estimates for frequently used applications and setups.
“We are pleased to offer our radiography customers such a useful tool to improve their daily workflow with STRUCTURIX,” said Frank Van Dijk, general manager and product line leader, of GE Measurement & Control, a division of GE Oil & Gas. “For 70 years STRUCTURIX has built a legacy of quality, expertise and reliability in the world of nondestructive testing and we are proud to continue this legacy as the exclusive provider of Agfa’s renowned STRUCTURIX industrial X-ray films.”
