GE joins forces with Thermo Fisher Scientific

September 2013 - GE’s Measurement and Control business is expanding its portfolio of inspection technologies through a new agreement with Thermo Fisher Scientific, a leading global supplier of analytical instruments and laboratory equipment. Effective October 2013, GE will sell three of Thermo Fisher’s flagship products in the positive material identification (PMI) sector – XL PMI, XL PMI+, and XL PMI+ Ultra.

The partnership expands GE’s non-destructive testing (NDT) offerings for the oil & gas, power generation and transportation industries. NDT solutions are used to inspect materials in critical equipment, such as engines and pipelines, and provide early detection of potential flaws without damaging the material. NDT is a highly cost-efficient step in Advanced Manufacturing processes and an efficient way to maintain the life of equipment once it is deployed.

The PMI products will further broaden the scope of GE’s inspection technologies toolbox – already one of the broadest in the industry – which today includes radiography, ultrasound, electromagnetics, remote visual inspection and data management software. PMI is the identification and analysis of various metal alloys by their chemical composition through non-destructive methods. PMI can be conducted on-site or in the laboratory.

“Thermo Fisher is the industry’s leading manufacturer of solutions for rapid and accurate PMI,” said Jeff Anderson, General Manager of inspection technologies for Measurement & Control. “This agreement combines the strength of Thermo Fisher’s differentiated PMI solutions with the strength of GE’s NDT offerings and expertise to expand and improve our inspection technology offerings for customers in our key industry sectors.”

“GE puts a premium on ensuring its customers can access innovative inspection technologies,” said Lisa Witte, Vice President and General Manager, Portable Analytical Instruments, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Both companies recognize the value in enabling users to perform high-performance materials analysis with convenient, cost effective and portable instrumentation.”

GE Measurement & Control is committed to improving the health and productivity of the world’s most critical assets and systems through advanced, sensor-based measurement, non-destructive testing, inspection and condition monitoring and flow and process control solutions. By equipping power plants, refineries and other critical industry systems with the software, hardware and services to optimize their performance and extend their lifecycles, the industrial products that power the world can be made stronger and safer.
