Introducing the first Computed Radiography system designed specifically for weld-quality radiographs, theVMI CR Switchblade . This new system packs VMI’s industry leading image resolution into an ultra-lightweight, compact, durable solution.

The CR SwitchBlade scanning process has been designed to have Imaging Phosphor (IP) Plates fed face down, allowing for the solution to be deployed in a direct light environment.  Utilizing an innovative magnetic track process, the SwitchBlade scans IP Plates without bending or manipulating the plates.  Finally making true portable Computed Radiography imaging a reality.
