The A-Series

Compact X-ray System

The A-Series is our most compact X-ray inspection system.

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).

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.
