Baggage Inspection
Baggage screening is an inspection to prevent the introduction of dangerous items (knives, firearms, chemicals, and other illegal items) when using airplanes and vehicles, facilities. It includes metal detectors, X-rays, and liquid inspection.
Baggage Inspection by X-Ray
As used in X-rays, X-rays penetrate through objects. The transmittance of X-rays varies depending on the density of the object, allowing the inside of the object to be projected. Therefore, X-ray inspection equipment can penetrate the contents of luggage without opening it, and detect dangerous objects such as knives, firearms, and plastic explosives.

Baggage Inspection by X-Ray

A secondary current flows through the metal present in the magnetic field.
Metal detectors
Metal detectors use electromagnetic induction. When a coil carrying an electric current is brought close to a metal conductor, a secondary magnetic field is generated by electromagnetic induction. This secondary magnetic field is used to detect the presence of metal.

How Metal Detectors Work

liquid inspection
Near-infrared light is used in the inspection of liquids in containers. Since the wavelength of the light absorbed differs depending on the type of liquid, the spectrum of the transmitted light is analyzed to identify alcohol and flammable liquids.

Matsusada Precision offers a wide range of products, including X-ray sources for baggage inspection and compact power supplies to drive metal detectors and liquid inspection equipment.
