North Star Imaging Europe expands to the United Kingdom and Ireland

NDT Industry News, Updates and Announcements


North Star Imaging Europe now has direct sales representation throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.  With nearly 30 years of experience in Non-Destructive testing, North Star Imaging designs, develops software, and manufactures 2D digital radiography and 3D computed tomography equipment.  Unlike cross sections and conventional x-ray images, computed tomography provides a three dimensional image of the inside and outside of a component. 

“At North Star Imaging, our goal is to meet our customers’ needs with the most innovative CT systems on the market.  As the third largest economy in Europe, it made sense to develop a direct presence in the UK,” said Julien Noel, General Manager of North Star Imaging Europe. 

Recent North Star Imaging innovations allow users to increase the size of the computed tomography scans and increase resolution.

  • vorteX is an automated single pass computed tomography scanning technique utilizing spiral acquisition and reconstruction with a digital flat panel detector
  • mosaiX utilizes a redesigned manipulator and a proprietary algorithm to stitch multiple images forming one seamless image with a much larger field of view
  • subpiX uses a redesigned motion system and a proprietary algorithm to generate image resolution that is typically double of the detector alone

Guy Tolley, our UK & Ireland Business Development Manager, brings nearly ten years of digital imaging experience to North Star Imaging Europe.  “I’m excited to bring innovations like vortex, mosaiX, and subpiX to our customers in the UK,” said Mr. Tolley.

Co-located with the Instron European Headquarters in High Wycombe, Mr.  Tolley can offer advice and support for existing and new customers, supply inspection services and develop application specific solutions.  North Star Imaging and Instron are both divisions of the ITW Test & Measurement and Electronics business platform.  For more information about North Star Imaging Europe, please contact info@4nsi.com
