Smiths Detection launches air cargo screening security scanner

Germany based Smiths Detection has announced the launch of its new HI-SCAN 145180-2, designed to meet the demands of air cargo screening, the company said.

Several advances in technology have been combined to support accurate decision-making; deliver on turnaround speed; and tangibly improve operational efficiency and productivity — which in turn reduces the screening cost per item.

This state-of-the art scanner has two newly developed 200kV X-ray generators set at 90° from each other, with one uniquely positioned under the conveyor belt. This layout offers excellent penetration and superior image quality – minimising the need for time consuming, costly re-scans — as well as easy access for maintenance and service.

Smiths Detection, part of Smiths Group, is a global leader in threat detection and screening technologies for aviation, ports and borders, defence and urban security markets.
