inspeXio SMX-100CT Plus Micro-Focus X-Ray Computed Tomography System

High-Contrast Micro-Focus X-Ray Computed Tomography System for Light Materials

inspeXio SMX-100CT Micro-Focus X-Ray Computed Tomography System


Simple, Intuitive, and Calibration-Free Operation

The inspeXio SMX-100CT Plus features easy sample loading and positioning; an observation camera helps guide placement of the sample. X-ray and scanning parameters are automatically set based on material and image quality selections. Without the need for calibration, testing starts immediately.

Exceptional Productivity

The inspeXio SMX-100CT Plus' high-performance computing (HPC) system significantly reduces analysis time by running data collection and calculation in parallel. The computational processing for this new HPC inspeXio system is approximately 50 times faster than the previous version. *1

More Accurate Analysis Through Better Images

Shimadzu’s original noise-reduction filtering and real-time sensitivity correction functions create sharp x-ray images for more accurate analyses.

The following safety features prevent accidents.

Collision Sensor and Software Limit
A collision sensor and software limit function prevent samples from hitting the x-ray tube while positioning.

Anti-Pinch Prevention
The sliding door through which samples are loaded is heavy and generates considerable inertia when it is opened and closed. The door safety lock helps reduce the likelihood of operators accidentally pinching their fingers.

Door Interlock
Both the sliding door and the maintenance doors are equipped with interlock switches which disable X-ray generation when a door is opened.

Radiation Leakage Prevention
The shield box’s wall is composed of sandwich panels comprised of steel and lead plates which are bonded to one another and welded to a steel frame.
