X-ray vendor Trex Medical this month announced a new name for its radiographic and R/F product line that reflects component changes the company has made to its systems. The Danbury, CT-based firm’s Heritage Series consists of standardized versions of the company’s existing radiographic and R/F configurations, such as its general radiographic unit, designed for general office use; its orthopedic system, which features a standard table and HFQ 1000 generator; its ER device, which allows users to conduct a full range of anatomical studies; its VIP unit, which includes an integrated tube stand and film receptor; its PMT tomography system, for general purpose and tomography procedures; and its RT-125 device, designed for pediatric applications. The series also includes Trex’s 4000M digital chest unit and its 2200I digital radiographic/fluoroscopic device.

With the Heritage Series, Trex consolidates its product line, using the same components across all its divisions. This shift centralizes Trex’s manufacturing operations at its Littleton, MA, facility, and produces increased economies of scale. Now-standard components include such items as the HFQ 1000 generator previously used only in Bennett’s products, and a radiographic table and overhead tube stand produced by Continental. Devices in the Heritage Series will remain at their existing price points, according to Trex spokesperson John Macko.
