  • North Star Imaging's 30 Years of Ingenuity

    From a small enterprise to a global X-ray & CT systems and inspection service provider
    Rogers, MN, January 7, 2016 – North Star Imaging (NSI), a manufacturer of digital X-ray and Computed Tomography (CT) systems for industrial applications, is celebrating its third decade of operations. The company started out in 1986 as a manufacturer’s representative gaining experience and knowledge in the CT industry.
    Adhering to the adage that the only thing that is constant is change, the company in mid-2000 ventured out to manufacture and sell their own equipment and systems software and also entered the market of as-needed inspection services to meet the growing demand from their customers.
    NSI’s success brought visibility and in 2010 the company was acquired by the multi-billion dollar conglomerate, Illinois Tool Works (ITW). This transformed the company into a global enterprise with offices not only in Minnesota but also California, Paris, London, and soon, in Asia.
    “The jump from being very local to global was significant. The company was performing really well, so we weren’t surprised that ITW was interested in us. The huge change this brought was suddenly becoming a part of a company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. This gave us the ability to grow at a much faster pace and has allowed us to take our products to new places with the guidance of people who had done it before”, says Seth Taylor, Business Unit Head of NSI.
    NSI’s success is also attributed to the customers, partners and suppliers who have helped them reach their 30 year mark. The company plans to celebrate their milestone throughout 2016 through their various activities, whether at trade show exhibitions, company events, or through various promotional campaigns.

  • NORTH STAR IMAGING INTRODUCES ROBOTIX - Automatic Loading for Product X-Ray Scanning

    Rogers, MN, May 7, 2017– North Star Imaging is pleased to announce a new add-on device that can be incorporated into standard and existing NSI X-ray & Computed Tomography (CT) systems for automatic part loading and unloading – robotiX.

    robotiX uses a simple interface that allows end-users to easily create new robotic motion control programs. These programs allow for reusable safe zone sub-routines that speed up the programming process to ensure that your NSI X-ray or CT system is up and running quickly when programming new parts for loading/unloading.

    What’s more, robotiX seamlessly integrates with NSI’s efX software to acquire, process and archive images with a user-friendly interface. It’s safety area scanner removes the need for added area protection and keeps the workplace secure by disabling the system if an object or person enters the predefined operating perimeter.

    Adding robotiX to your NSI system reduces cycle time, increases productivity and allows for more efficient use of your equipment.
