X-rays, a type of electromagnetic wave, is related to infrared ray, ultraviolet ray, and light in the visible spectrum.
Light can be blocked by an object so that it does not reach its destination. However, since X-rays have a short wavelength and a lot of energy, they can pass through the atoms and electrons that make up an object.
This action is due to penetration properties, and is used for X-ray images and non-destructive inspections: such as using an X-ray inspection system for fill level inspection and foreign material inspection.
In addition, cross-sectional images and stereoscopic images can be obtained from transmission images that are made
through 360-degrees of rotation around the target object: X-ray CT.
The X-ray tube units that generate X-rays are referred to by the following names depending on the focus size of the X-rays.
- Milli-focus X-ray
- Mini-focus X-ray
- Micro-focus X-ray
