Vulcan GMS Offers Flat Panel X-Ray Detector Shielding Solutions

Flat panel X-ray detectors are the latest and greatest adaption to X-ray imaging. These new flat panel X-ray detectors are to X-ray what the high megapixel digital camera is compared to X-ray film. They are completely revolutionizing.

Today's flat panel X-ray detectors are thin; taking up much less space while offering real time X-ray imaging with resolution that has never been seen before. The imaging is truly amazing.

However as part of this new technology, there is a need for electronics that were previously not needed. Most electronics do not do well in time under X-ray. It causes them to fail. As a result, many applications use lead, tungsten or steel to shield the electronics while acting as a beam stop.

There are many options to consider based on the needs; including weight and shielding requirements. Vulcan GMS offers many different types of shielding and turnkey offerings to help you with these needs.

Vulcan GMS not only offers the shielding; but we can also provide fabricated frames, plastic shells, components and assembly solutions.

If you have a current project or a design in process that might benefit from a flat panel X-ray detector, contact Vulcan GMS to help you develop a production solution to meet your goals.
