Non-destructive testing provider GE Inspection Technologies has rebranded as Waygate Technologies, a Baker Hughes business.
The company offers industrial inspection solutions including x-ray and computed tomography (CT), remote visual inspection, ultrasound and eddy current technologies.
GE Inspection Technologies became part of Baker Hughes three years ago when GE merged its Oil and Gas business with the company. The rebranding to Waygate Technologies comes after GE’s divestment of its majority ownership in Baker Hughes in 2019.
GE still holds shares in the business and there are long-term agreements allowing Waygate Technologies to use GE technologies in its products in the future. Waygate Technologies will remain a Baker Hughes business as part of the corporation’s Digital Solutions segment.
Nicola Jannis, senior vice president of Waygate Technologies said, “As part of the next phase of our business, the launch of Waygate Technologies is an important step for us. We wanted to create a new identity that reflects what we stand for today, and in the future: ensuring safety, quality and productivity for major industries around the world.
“We have been known as an industrial inspection solutions company and the world leader in NDT. However we are also driving innovations to deliver data and insights that will not only improve the quality and durability of products across industries, but also significantly enhance our customers’ productivity and competitiveness.”
Waygate Technologies plans to expand its services and introduce new products and innovations around its core technologies such as CT inspection, remote visual inspection and ultrasound.
