A new standard of image quality for digital X-ray inspection systems
Newly Developed Fujifilm Computed Radiography Dynamix HR

September 25, 2006


Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shigetaka Komori) is proud to announce the development of the new Fujifilm Computed Radiography Dynamix HR, a next-generation digital X-ray inspection system for non-destructive testing in aeronautics, automotive, electrical power generation and other industries. The new system offers twice the reading density, producing a high-resolution X-ray image that permits detection of even minute defects. The new Fujifilm Computed Radiography Dynamix HR designed to work with the newly developed high-resolution UR-1 imaging plate. The new system will be featured as a reference exhibit at the European Conference of Non-Destructive Testing, from September 25, 2006 in Berlin, Germany.

Fujifilm Computed Radiography is a digital X-ray inspection system for non-destructive testing that produces high-resolution images by recording X-ray image data on a highly sensitive imaging plate. The system automatically digitizes and optimizes the image data for specific inspection purposes. Due to the ability to create a digitized image of the target object and digitized inspection data, this technology is finding applications in industries that require defect inspection of industrial parts and maintenance inspections of manufacturing facilities. Achieving a reading density of 50um, twice the 100um density of the existing model, the new Fujifilm Computed Radiography Dynamix HR aims to meet the needs of industries that require even more detailed defect detection. The new high-resolution imaging plate combines with enhanced image processing to produce high-resolution, high-quality images that permit detection of even minute defects on a high-resolution monitor.

Fujifilm Computed Radiography Dynamix HR achieves high-speed cycle time that permits reading and erasing of every 35.4 x 43cm imaging plate as quickly as 97 seconds*. And boasting a new compact design, the Dynamix HR is only approximately 60% the size and weight of the existing model, making it possible to install this new unit in cramped inspection areas, research facilities, and even in mobile inspection vehicles.
*At appropriate X-ray exposure level

Fujifilm will continue to develop and commercialize innovative technologies to meet the needs of customers who require X-ray imaging solutions for non-destructive testing.



Main Features of Fujifilm Computed Radiography Dynamix HR

(1)  Delivering reading density of 50um, the newly developed Dynamix HR Reader and UR-1 high-definition imaging plate utilize Fujifilm's proprietary image processing technology to produce high-resolution images up to 35.4 x 43cm.
(2)  Compatible with newly developed UR-1 and conventional ST-VI imaging plates, (the Dynamix HR Reader produces100um reading density when ST-VI is used)
(3)  ST-VI available in new 15x30cm size
(4)  Cycle speed of 97 seconds for 35.4 x 43cm imaging plate read at 50um density;
Cycle speed of 58 seconds for 35.4 x 43cm imaging plate read at 100um density.
(5)  New compact, light-weight reader design (approximately 60% the size and weight of existing model)
