About 40 years ago, NRT and BJ-Gear A/S started a very fruitful collaboration; NRT needed gearbox solutions that could be approved for the high standards of medical equipment, and the two companies jointly manufactured BJ-Gear's first medical gearbox. The collaboration has since developed and BJ-Gear A/S delivers a large part of the gearboxes, that are used in NRT's X-ray systems.
NRT and BJ-Gear are very similar in many ways. Both companies are innovative and produce niche products within their field. At NRT, they have, among other things, launched an X-ray device for RSA analysis. This device performs stereo recordings and is used especially for implants to determine whether the implants move relative to the host bone. The device uses the latest technology and there is no equivalent in the market. For the RSA devices, BJ-gearboxes is used for movement of the patient bed and the telescopes.
