The DMS Go from GE’s Inspection Technologies business is a high-end thickness gauge which combines an innovative, easy-to-use user interface, powerful data management and an ability to provide accurate, reliable and comprehensive thickness inspection data. It is ideally suited for a wide range of applications including measuring for corrosion in the oil and gas sector and in power generation.

The DMS Go uses the same operating platform as the USM Go portable flaw detector. By means of a simple software purchase your DMS Go can benefit from all the USM Go functionalities and perform advanced flaw detections.
