X-ray inspection systems are used to detect minute defects in any product or metal by destructive means. These inspection techniques cover a wide range of sectors such as automotive, food and pharmaceuticals and many more, from inspection of cracks in materials to detection of external matter into materials. The increased usage of minute products and their assembly in electronics industry requires quality inspection, which can detect hidden defects.
X-rays have a high energy density, which can pass through the product. The X-rays for radiograph are generated by an electric X-ray tube. Depending on the density of the object to be inspected, the X-rays are reduced to higher or lower degree. The detector which is the source at the other end converts the leftover radiation to electric signals and differences the density of the inspected object. The image processing software gives corresponding output after detecting the differences in the contrast of an image which highlights the missing or contaminant products.
In food and pharmaceuticals, product inspection has become an essential element to detect contamination with impurities, which can be hazardous. Detection of magnetic and non- magnetic metals can be detected through metal detectors in the food industry. The major drawback with metal detectors is that they are limited, they cannot detect the external metal which is coated with aluminum. X-ray detection systems in the food industry are also used for identifying contaminants like glass, stones, ceramics and similar materials, which can cause a major problem.
In recent years, the global X-Ray Inspection Systems Market are witnessing a rapid growth. The growth is driven by adoption of technology in the food and pharmaceutical industry, aviation sector and demand for technically advanced systems are driving the market.
The Global X-ray inspection systems market is expected to reach approximately USD 810 million growing at a CAGR of 8% over the forecast period 2017-2023.
