PRESS RELEASE MAY 2015

Metrix NDT Ltd

First sale of new versatile x-ray cabinet from Metrix NDT

Metrix NDT Ltd, a UK company that designs and supplies x-ray components and inspection equipment, has made its first sale of its new ‘EZ-Access’ x-ray inspection cabinet.

EZ-Access is a versatile x-ray cabinet ideally suited for use in research laboratories and R&D departments. It is particularly suitable for prototype development work, for short run inspection tasks, and can be used with a wide variety of x-ray generators and detectors.

The cabinet has been designed to resolve issues associated with developing x-ray systems in the work place. EZ-Access provides users with a large (2m x 1m x 1m) radiologically shielded cabinet with fully integrated safety interlocks, power and communications ports to ensure ease of use and rapid set-up times. The system provides unprecedented access to the internal chamber and x-ray work bench from either side. EZ-Access can be used with customers’ existing generators, detectors and motion tables, or can be supplied with these, and other optional accessories including viewing panels, internal webcams and integral optical work benches

The ease of use and competitive price makes the EZ-Access system a highly cost effective alternative to fixed radiologically shielded rooms. The cabinet is supplied ready assembled as standard, however a ‘flatpack’ option is also available to allow assembly in difficult to access workplaces. The cabinet also has wheels to allow it to be relocated as required.

Ibex Innovations Ltd recently purchased the EZ-Access chamber to provide them with a re-locatable development environment for the ongoing productionisation of their highly innovative x-ray detector technology.  Neil Loxley, Ibex’s CEO said of the EZ-Access chamber:

“We chose the EZ-Access chamber as it offered a highly cost effective alternative to conventional shielded rooms and provides our engineers with a safe and flexible working environment that has enabled us to significantly reduce experimentation timescales.  Delivered and operational within a single afternoon meant that the whole installation process had minimum disruption to company business – the same could not be said for the installation of a conventional shielded rooms” 

 Nick Fox, Metrix NDT’s Managing Director says:

“The EZ-Access chamber has been produced as a result of 20 year’ experience in the x-ray sector to overcome the frustrations we have encountered with development and testing of new x-ray based products.  The idea was to offer a low cost, safe and versatile x-ray work bench that can be used in a normal laboratory environment without the expense and disruption of installing costly shielded rooms – something I am proud to say we have achieved.”

Metrix NDT Ltd is a ‘one stop shop’ for x-ray inspection; supplying high quality x-ray generators, tubes, and digital detectors, as well as complete turnkey systems, cabinets, accessories, training and advice.
