XSeeker 8000 - Features
Benchtop Microfocus X-Ray CT System
Compact Benchtop CT Sytem
Smallest Bench-Top CT System in Its Class
The XSeeker 8000 is the most compact system in its X-ray output class. This allows for installation in a wide range of locations.
Powerful Image Processing Including STL Conversion
High-Accuracy Offset Scan Mode
The XSeeker can hold samples with a diameter up to 12 inches and a height of 13 inches using offset scanning methods, which provides a wide 4-inch diameter field of view.
Equipped with a 50 μm Pixel Pitch Flat Panel Detector
The system is equipped with a high-functionality viewer with multiple functions. In addition to the Multi-Planer Reconstruction (MPR) display, which shows multiple cross-sectional images side by side, this can be combined with a Volume Rendering (VR) display capable of 3D displays, resulting in more intuitive observations.
Equipped as Standard with a High-Functionality All-In-One Viewer
The system is equipped with a high-functionality viewer with multiple functions. In addition to an MPR display, which shows multiple cross-sectional images side by side, this can be combined with a VR display capable of 3D displays, resulting in more intuitive observations.
Measurement can be performed on both cross-sectional and VR images. The CT data can be converted to a mesh file (STL) for modeling analysis or use in 3D printers.
Optimized for High-Throughput Inspection
Simple 3-Step Operation
A simple 3-step process enables starting observations. Upon installation, new operators can run the system with minimal training.
Calibration is not required prior to sample placement.
Operation at the Push of a Button
In inspection applications with repeated scanning of samples with the same shape, operation at the push of a button enhances throughput.
The optimal conditions, including the position displayed and the contrast during observations, are recorded together with the scanning conditions. This allows observations to begin immediately after scanning without adjusting the observation position or contrast. All operations from starting the scanning to observing the results can be completed at the push of a button, without any software operations.
Scanning in as Little as 12 Seconds and High-Speed Reconstruction Calculations
High-speed scanning can take as little as 12 seconds. In addition, the system is equipped with the same reconstruction system as high-end models, so CT data can be displayed a mere 10 seconds after scanning is complete. This is approximately twice as fast as Shimadzu’s other CT models.
Recommend Scanning Function
The system is equipped with an recommend scanning function, which can set all the scanning conditions with a single click. The optimal imaging conditions can be set easily just by selecting one combination of material and image quality.
Designed with Safety in Mind
In addition to displaying the instrument status, including the stage position during normal operation, the monitor provides details of any errors that occur during abnormal operation and the site where the problem occurs, so the operator is notified of the problem immediately.
The status of the system as a whole is always monitored, from warnings that the sliding door is not shut, for example, to alarms indicating overheating of the X-ray generator and communications faults.
During Normal Operation
During abnormal Operation
Safety Compliant with CE Marking
Analysis of thick samples with ease
Image Quality and Functionality on Par with High End Models
High 160 kV Output Achieves High Penetration Ability
Thanks to its 160 kV X-ray output, the system can observe thick, hard-to-penetrate plastic and metal parts.

Advanced Built in Post Processing Software
The system is equipped with a high-functionality all-in-one display, which allows for simultaneous observations of 2D/3D multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) and 3D computed tomography (CT) images. High-speed reconstruction software allows CT data to be displayed a mere 10 seconds after scanning is complete.
