CR Vision

Packed with innovative features to increase throughput, extend plate life and provide excellent image quality, the CRxVision is designed specifically for the inspection of welds. The scanner is developed to cover the stringent ISO 17636-2 Class A and B requirements, as well as ASTM, ASME and EN weld standards. Because of its versatility, it can also be used for many other applications across the NDT industry.

Key Features and Benefits

Weld Standards & DICONDE Compliant

Compliant to ISO 17636-2 Class A and B, ASME, ASTM and EN weld inspection standards. The new scanner enjoys all the functionality offered by GE´s Rhythm Software giving the inspector the ability to view, enhance, measure, annotate and comment on the images. The CRxVision system is completely DICONDE compliant and compatible with all existing modules in GE´s Rhythm Software platform.

High Resolution

The CRxVision has an extremely wide latitude eliminating the need for multiple gain settings when exposing over a wide range of thicknesses. This is the result of a 16 bit image processing at selectable 35 or 70 microns resolution.

High Throughput

Designed for extremely high throughput: 90 plates/hr at 70 microns or 28 plates/hr at 35 microns for a 10 x 40 cm (4.5 x 17”) plate. The scanner allows multiple imaging plates to be scanned simultaneously …side-by-side and back-to-back as well as various lengths to be scanned together. This is a result of the straight and flat, in-line scan and erase transport path.


Ability to scan any shape or size of imaging plate from 20 to 1500 mm (0.75 to 60”) in length. Imaging plates can be exposed in any type of cassette, then simply removed and inserted directly into the scanner without the need of any type of adapter, template or leader.

Extended Plate Life

A new innovative imaging plate design now provides the GE CRxVision imaging plates with more flexibility. This new design allows each imaging plate the ability to return to a flat state after being constantly bent around pipes for the inspection of welds. This feature also helps improve productivity by allowing the imaging plates to be easily extracted and reinserted into cassettes.

Plate transport through the scanners is achieved by a magnetic transportation system. The new combination of scanner and imaging plate design allows the imaging plate to be transported through the scanner without any mechanical handling of the phosphor ultimately extending the overall life of the plate.


The updated Rhythm RT software simplifies inspection workflow. It now has the ability to automatically crop the images by detecting the physical edges of each individual plate when they are processed. Consequently, each individual plate can be separately identified and saved or grouped together and saved as one file.

Ambient Operation

The CRxVision can be used in ambient light conditions with suitable handling as the light cover protects the plates from light exposure during the scan cycle. The cover can be removed for work in darkrooms if required.


Even though the CRxVision was designed for the inspection of welds, it also has the ability to cover a wide range of industrial radiography applications, from Oil & Gas to Aerospace, and from Power Generation to General NDT.

    • Weld inspection
    • Erosion/Corrosion inspection (CUI, FAC, …)
    • Castings (In-process and final)
    • Valve positioning
    • Concrete and Structure inspection
    • Government (Arsenals, National Laboratories, Proving Grounds)
    • Military (in-service aircraft, ships, etc.)

CR<sup>x</sup>Flex Computed Radiography Scanner


In all applications the CRxVision offers the following significant benefits of digital radiography:

  • No darkroom facilities/trucks needed (for standard image plate sizes)
  • Eliminate processing chemicals and chemical disposal/silver recovery
  • Improved image interpretation and inspection quality level with Flash!Filters
  • Consistent & operator–independent results with the Automated WT Measurement tool
  • High reduction in retakes due to the wide dynamic range of the imaging plates
  • No development time, as images are immediately available after scanning
  • High reduction in storage space when archiving digital images
  • Data management (trending) and data sharing advantages
  • Fully DICONDE compliant
