The right components for all applications

Our modular system

The Art X-Ray machines are made to customers’ specifications. On this page, we’ll show you the key components available. The information here is more of a general nature. Our reference project pages show specific details about the museums’ machines.

The X-ray system for generating radiation

The X-ray system determines which objects can be examined. In this context, the X-ray voltage is crucial. For instance, paintings on canvas are X-rayed at a voltage of between 30 and 50 kV, whereas slightly higher X-ray voltage is required for paintings on wood. If it’s not just paintings and small objects of lightweight materials that are to be X-rayed, the X-ray system needs to be designed for higher voltage.

If necessary, we can also fit other X-ray tubes

The line-scan X-ray camera system for imaging

The line-scan X-ray cameras take the X-ray images in a scanning process and come in various lengths. The camera’s effective sensor length defines the height of the X-ray image that can be captured in one pass. Several scans are required for higher objects. The width of the image is governed by the width of the machine.
