Exclusively designed for industrial use, the IPS, IPC2 and IPU2 imaging plates by Waygate Technologies deliver superior image quality, exposure speed, and a longer lifetime. Combining a wide dynamic range with exposure latitude, our image plates facilitate a substantial reduction of asset downtime and a higher throughput. By applying the latest nanotechnology, Waygate Technologies has revolutionized the market with its newest imaging plate. The IPU2 increases the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) by up to 45% at equal dose sensitivity and ISO speed while maintaining the highest sharpness.
In combination with our computed radiography (CR) scanners, the imaging plates received BAM certification and are trusted by the quality control regulators of leading global organizations in the aerospace, oil and gas, power generation, automotive, and military sectors. They are fine-tuned for optimal performance in harsh industrial environments and meet highest applicable ASTM, ISO, and EN standard classes.
The composition of the imaging plate storage phosphor material ensures optimum performance. The material has high absorption efficiency, excellent homogeneity, and a short response time to ensure high sharpness and contrast.
In most cases, imaging plates allow the visualization of all diagnostic information with only one exposure.
A high tolerance for varying exposure conditions allows for greater freedom in the selection of the exposure dose.
Our imaging plates are protected by an EBC (electron-beam-cured) topcoat. This results in plates with superb protection from mechanical wear and excellent chemical resistance.
All plates come in more than 40 standard sizes but can also be customized to you specific needs.
SNR – signal-to-noise ratio
SNRn – normalized signal-to-noise ratio
SRb – basic spatial resolution
Especially highly specialized applications in industries like power generation and aerospace require the highest image quality and sharpness for their critical inspections. To meet their need, Waygate Technologies developed the imaging plate IPU2. As an advancement of the IPU image plate, the newest addition to the portfolio relies on unique phosphor nanotechnology to improve image quality without compromising any other established parameters. Thus, IPU2 significantly improves your probability of detection with a normalized signal-to-noise ratio (SNRn) between 250 and 400 – unmatched in CR technology.
With a high homogeneity structure and fast response times, our IPS delivers a very high level of sharpness and SNR performance. This allows for the inspection of even the smallest details – making it ideal for most applications, such as in weld inspection, castings, transportation and many more. Thanks to the improved scratch-resistant coating, the IPS plate has an increased lifespan without compromising its proven image quality.
The IPC2 is an extremely fast imaging plate that offers high image quality and good SNR performance. Its high absorption efficiency and excellent homogeneity structure of the storage phosphor allow for short exposure times and make it the ideal imaging plate for rapid screening inspections like erosion-corrosion and concrete examination.
