Strong Customer Demand For CR System Designed For Non-Destructive Testing Use

ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 12 — Carestream Health, Inc., announced unprecedented demand for its KODAK INDUSTREX HPX-1 Digital System, the first computed radiography (CR) system designed specifically for the non-destructive testing (NDT) industry.

The HPX-1 system features exceptional image resolution, ease of use and is extremely durable. “Our design engineers focused on the needs and challenges of NDT applications, and they spent time living in our customers shoes to truly understand the NDT environment,” said Marty Graen, General Manager of Carestream Health’s NDT Solutions. “The result is a CR system that has been specifically designed and manufactured for industrial applications based on direct customer feedback.”

The HPX-1 digital system has proven itself in a variety of industries such as chemical/petrochemical, aerospace, transportation, construction, power generation and defense. With rugged construction features ideal for harsh industrial environments, and the ability to handle rigid cassettes and flexible plates—the HPX-1 system is ideal for use in challenging customer applications and environments.

The system comes fully pre-configured and ready to operate after only a few simple connections. The easy-to-learn software and intuitive interface minimizes training time, while a simplified workflow improves productivity with enhanced annotation capabilities, automatic file naming and a double file save capability (both Industrex and DICONDE formats).

The company’s new KODAK INDUSTREX HPX-1 Digital System was launched in July of 2009 at the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) conference. For more information about Carestream Health’s HPX-1 digital system, please visit
