All-day operations and long life
CoolGlide is a liquid metal bearing technology that operates with virtually no wear for all-day operation and long life, and delivers a quieter sound pattern for smooth operation and a pleasant patient experience. The DA200P40+LMB tube was developed by the same team that was the first in the world to bring LMB technology to the X-ray market in 1989. With over 100,000 LMB units sold worldwide, the team built on its expertise when developing DA200P40+LMB with CoolGlide.
The tube is currently offered for the GE Revolution Evo and Optima 660 CT scanners. Future plans include validation for additional GE scanners.
Article • Liquid metal bearing technology
Liquid metal bearing (LMB) technology has been a key aspect of extending the lifespan of CT scanners, improving workflow, and enhancing patient and operator experience via noise reduction. The LMB concept has been pioneered by Dunlee, with senior CT product manager Robert Bayerlein noting that the Hamburg-based company has a long heritage in imaging innovation.
Manufactured in the USA
All DA200P40+LMB tubes are manufactured in Illinois, USA with imported parts. The Liquid Metal Bearing with CoolGlide is designed and manufactured in Germany, based on knowledge gained from over 30 years of LMB technology development.
