Industrial process control
X-ray is a powerful tool for continuous production process control due to its ability to scan objects or material at high speed on a conveyor belts. X-ray penetrates material revealing the internal structure as well as providing information on the density or thickness of the material.
Take as an example measurement of weight-per-area or product thickness (for example of steel or wood particle board), identification foreign objects/contaminants, checking for product completeness/missing objects, measurement of product size and quality control checking.
Detection Technology offer a wide range of solutions for industrial process control, including systems for use with high energies for penetrating thick steel and dual energy detectors for identifying material based on an atomic number.
