Unlocking in-house, benchtop 3D X-ray without lab-infrastructure and costs

“What truly sets the Adaptix 3D X-ray scanner apart is the efficiency and speed…the results have been nothing short of exceptional…optimises our workflow and has revolutionised our counterfeit detection procedures.” Azego TS Ltd, Head of Technical Services

In-house 3D testing allowing differentiation and transformation of inspection economics:

  • – Compressing inspection cycles
  • – Enhancing risk management
  • – Reducing inventory holding and
  • – Reducing operating costs.


Component Inspection:

  • 19.5-micron, high-resolution, detector (4.6 x 6.7 cm active area), where a single 3D X-ray:
    • Fits within the MIL-STD-883K and AS6081 25-micron resolution requirement for X-ray inspection
    • Mostly fits the full batch of samples onto the detector
    • Can identify die surface damage where 2D X-ray can’t

‘Intelligent Inspection’:

  • Large detector (36 x 43 cm active area) to 3D X-ray:
    • boxed of trays of chips (32 x 17 cm)
    • boxed stacks of reels (up to the 33 cm diameter reels)
    • Visualise missing or variant components
    • Informed choice of which samples to inspect
    • Additionally inspects devices & boards
  • Inspection data without breaking the manufacturer’s seal (for trusted suppliers)
    • Reduced transaction risk
    • Increased data for differentiation and higher Quality Assurance


  • Take photo of packaging in parallel to X-ray imaging instead of separate work station

Cloud Deployed Data:

  • All images uploaded to a cloud hosted site for analysis
  • Globally and instantly accessible by multiple employees, with full functionality on their phone
  • Sharable with customers for enhanced products, services and differentiation

Dimensions & Weight:

  • XYZ = 65 x 58 x 54 cm
  • 90 kg

The versatile unit can be used in-house with a small footprint, or easily transportable to deploy at various events, locations and shared between sites.

It can be used for:

  • diagnostics
  • goods-in
  • goods-out
  • through-life comparison & and life extension
  • assurance or fault-detection in
              • Components
              • Packages
              • Devices
              • Routers
              • Boards
              • Batteries
              • …and more!

Meeting the requirements

Standards MIL-STD-883K and AS6081 (the Standards for supplying into Aerospace & Defence) require a resolution down to 25 microns; our system has a 19.5-micron detector to achieve below the required level.

Low-flux and low cost

Per AS6171 for X-ray inspection, an electronic component is destructively tested when exposed to > 2,500 Rads (below is non-destructive).

For a 3D X-ray, the Adaptix system exposes components to a miniscule 0.74 Rads.

The low-power is a unique selling point meaning you can gain extra X-ray data on all packages, safely operating at magnitudes below the Standard safe limit.

This low-flux also means you can operate the system with open doors at a safe distance of 5 meters, saving overnight working or area shut-downs for large items.

Single Phase Power:

Low-flux means the system only requires single-phase, meaning:

  • Plug it straight into the mains socket
  • No transformers or special installation requirements
  • Low-energy operating costs
  • No air cooling and high costs compared to a micro-CT
