X-Ray Inspection for the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industries

X-ray inspection is an important tool widely used in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries to investigate internal or concealed structures and features, to identify problems,  and to  confirm integrity of the product before it leaves the plant.

X-ray inspection can provide valuable information to the manufacturer in both the laboratory and on the production line

X-ray inspection can be used to:

  • Inspect complex assemblies, such as medical devices and accurately measure components, confirm their alignments or orientation
  • Identify faults such as missing, cracked or broken parts or weld defects
  • Detect contaminants such as non-ferrous metals in foil, stainless steel, powders, bone, glass, wood, PVC, plastics, stone, ceramic, cement and rubber
  • Monitor fill control (fluids) or package content (blister pack)
  • Confirm package completeness – product, leaflets and accessories are all in the sealed package prior to shipping
