How Do X-Ray Systems Find Foreign Bodies?

How Do X-Ray Systems Find Foreign Bodies?

Modern X-Ray systems are very specialized, efficient, advanced, and are commonly used in a range of industries for inspection purposes, including medical diagnostics; food and pharmaceutical product inspection; construction (structural, mining and engineering); and security.

X-Rays are used to in security applications to “look” inside packaging and food and pharmaceutical manufacturers are increasingly relying on X-Ray systems to detect and reject contaminated products from the production line, in order to protect consumers, reduce the risk of product recalls, and safeguard their brands.

But, how do X-Ray systems actually find foreign bodies? This white paper begins by explaining what X-Rays are and the main components and operating principles of an X-Ray inspection system, before identifying typical foreign bodies and looking at how X-Ray systems detect these in products and packaging, as well as considering some of the issues manufacturers face when using X-Ray systems to detect foreign bodies.
