Xpress Flex Bendable DR Panel

Xpress Flex is the World’s first flexible digital X-ray detector that can be contoured around an object for direct contact of the imaging area. An innovative hinged design allows the TFT detector to move freely and smoothly without impacting image quality or product durability. This flexibility means the detector can be shaped around more complex objects eliminating distortion that can come from using a flat DR panel.

Until the release of the Xpress Flex Bendable DR Panels Industrial Radiographic Testing (RT) for pipelines and tanks have generally been performed by conventional X-ray film or flexible imaging plates (Computed Radiography-CR), due to the curved inspection surface. Ultimately this can lengthen imaging time required and add "elements of inconvenience" to the imaging processing procedure. The Xpress Flex Bendable DR Panel Series eliminates image distortion of curved targets, like pipe or tanks, which is the biggest limitation of ordinary Digital Flat Panel Detectors. Moreover, it supports both wire/wireless operations and the with the slimline, lightweight and highly durable build to meet the need of NDT market. The TFT detectors are rugged and sensitive enough to capture images using even low exposures. Isotopes with low curies (less than 30) still produce weld quality images on the Xpress Flex, allowing you to keep your sources longer and reduce the exclusion zones dramatically.
