X-ray Baggage Scanner – Find the Perfect One for Every Situation

Whether it’s at the boarding gates at the airport, at the entrance to a festival or international concert, the doors of a government building, or a parcel sorting centre (to name but a few), we’ve all encountered some sort of X-ray baggage scanner before. These well-designed devices play a vital role in ensuring the security of the public as well as officials, and in the monitoring of illegal activities. They also ensure that regular activity can go ahead with minimal disruption – imagine the ridiculous queues one would have to stand in if, instead of an X-ray baggage scanner, security had to search each and every parcel manually.

How Does an X-ray Baggage Scanner Work?

The purpose of this device is to allow the operator to detect any dangerous and/or contraband items within luggage, parcels and/or cargo. After the X-rays pass through the item, they are picked up by a detector. This detector then passes the X-rays on to a filter, which blocks out the lower-energy X-rays. Since different materials absorb X-rays at different levels, the image on the monitor allows the machine operator to see distinct items inside your bag.

Types of X-ray Baggage Scanners

Not every situation, package, or threat is the same, which is why Khomanani X-ray Systems supplies different types of scanner solutions for different environments:

  • Mail and Small Parcel Scanners: These devices specifically aim to detect any suspicious mail that might contain forbidden objects or contraband as it passes through the system.
  • Hand Luggage Scanners: These devices are designed for screening hand baggage, small parcels and packages and small size cargo.
  • Large Baggage Scanners: These scanners are designed for screening aircraft hold baggage, large parcels and packages, and medium-sized cargo.
  • Cargo Scanners: These are designed for screening large cargo and palletised goods, and are available with different levels of X-ray

Industries we supply security equipment to:

  • Customs, borders, and ports: Due to the ever-present threat of cross-border smuggling, authorities require a way to effectively monitor imports, exports, transit traffic and people for illicit goods and dangerous materials.
  • Governmental departments: Departments face an ongoing risk of attack and require innovative technologies and solutions to safeguard people and infrastructure.
  • Financial institutions, embassies, and schools: The locations are all highly susceptible to ongoing threats and attacks from a range of lethal weapons and explosive devices.
