Ramp and Shim Operations

Ramping and shimming are necessary to preserve your magnet’s homogeneity – the term used to describe the uniformity of a magnetic field in the center of a scanner. Even fresh from the factory, your new magnet will need to be ramped up to its full field so it can undergo a set of tests and calibrations that will bring it to the desired homogeneity specifications.

Altima can perform the full range of ramp and shim operations that are needed for either a new magnet, a newly transported magnet, or anything in-between.

We are able to service equipment both domestically and abroad with our commitment to:

    • using high-quality tools and materials,
