Non-destructive testing plays an important role in quality control in China, specifically in welding and industrial parts, and the safety assurance of pressure vessels and pipelines. It is used in a wide range of industries, including metallurgy, oil & gas, power generation, aerospace and transportation. With increasingly elevated requirements of quality, efficiency and safety in China, the market demand for NDT products and service is significant.

"This venture is a strong representation of the cooperation between the two companies," said Charlene Begley, President & CEO of GE Enterprise Solutions. "The application center provides GE™s Chinese industrial customers with the opportunity to explore advanced NDT technologies, solutions and services."

GE's technologies, paired with SGS's NDT training center and service capabilities, provide Chinese customers with world-class inspection service and training, and the ability to help solve their toughest inspection challenges. The partners will also work together to help facilitate the upgrading of certain Chinese NDT standards.

The joint application center is located in Kongqiao Industrial Zone in Pudong New Area of Shanghai, and is equipped with GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies™ NDT solutions, including ultrasonic flaw detectors, eddy current flaw detectors, spot-welding detectors, X-ray real-time inspection systems and digital inspection systems, computed-radiography system, microfocus X-ray system and industrial CT systems.
