The A-Series

Compact X-ray System


The A-Series is our most compact x-ray inspection system, catering to those on a budget.

The A-Series x-ray system is compact enough to fit into your existing production line without compromising on versatility to inspect any product format (including trays, pouches, cans, and loose products).

Experts in X-ray Technology

Our expertise in low energy technology shows in the A-Series’ capability for high-sensitivity imaging, resulting in superior contaminant detection.

The A-Series combines advanced linear array technology with superior inspection algorithms enabling inspection to go beyond contaminant detection. As with all Sapphire Inspection’s x-rays, the A-Series can check that quantity, mass, and fill levels are correct, in addition to detecting broken or missing parts.
