It’s time for the next #GEInstaWalk! On October 8th, we’ll explore a locomotive facility in Fort Worth, TX with @dankhole, @benjaminheath, @jayzombie, @chrisozer and @samhorine. We’d also like to invite two of our biggest rail fans along. Share a photo with the hashtag #GEInstaWalkContest on Instagram by 12AM on 9/21 that shows us how you capture the beauty of engineering and and you’ll have a chance to see locomotives come to life! Visit ge.com/instawalk for more details!
At GE’s MRI magnet factory in Florence, SC, Robin works on the wiring of a 3 Tesla magnet by winding copper and niobium titanium wires along its interior. Each 3T magnet contains over 125 miles of wiring. This wiring is so strong that a single strand has enough strength to lift a car. Photo by @seenewphoto.
Looking down the bore of a GE 1.5 Tesla magnet as a welder assembles its shell. On a finished magnet, this shell acts like a thermos for the magnet by keeping it cold. Footage taken by @seenewphoto on the factory floor of our MRI magnet facility in Florence, SC.
