Tech Tips

An X-ray inspection system can be used to inspect internal structures and defects that are not visible from the outside, without destroying the object (non-destructive inspection). Matsusada Precision offers an extensive lineup ranging from compact, high-precision desktop models to large, high-penetration models. The key to choosing the correct model is to determine the sample size and how to inspect the sample. Use the information on this page to find the best model based on a variety of conditions and your intended use.

Search by Tube Voltage

Matsusada Precision offers X-ray inspection systems with a wide range of tube voltage from 20 to 130 kV. Tube voltage refers to the voltage applied to the X-ray tube. The total intensity of the X-rays that are generated increases in proportion to the square of the tube voltage.

Increasing the tube voltage shortens the wavelength of X-rays, making it easier for the X-rays to penetrate the sample. On the other hand, setting a low tube voltage often improves the contrast for samples of light elements.

Tube voltage [kV]Model
40 to 130 μRay8400
30 to 90 μnRay7600
30 to 90 μnRay7900/7900F

30 to 90 μRay8000
20 to 80 μB3500
20 to 60 μB1600

Search by Stage Type

Choose the best stage type according to sample size and work space. For example, to thoroughly inspect a small sample, choose a model with a small stage size. To inspect a large sample or multiple small samples, choose a model with a large stage size. Moreover, the stage can be rotated and tilted to perform fluoroscopy at various angles.
