Superior Performance and Unparalleled Dose Uniformity

X-rays are produced by bombarding targets with electrons, which are accelerated in a vacuum through a high-voltage electrical field.  The dose is delivered by two opposing X-ray tubes with the sample canister located centrally between them.  The two cone-shaped beams ensure that a tight dose is delivered to the product and exceptional dose uniformity is attained.
