How to Improve X-ray Scanner Throughput of Lightweight Products

Ultralight X-Ray Curtains for Inspection of Lightweight Packages on Food Scanners

Ultralight X-ray Curtains are perfect for x-ray systems inspecting lightweight pouches, cartons, or cups where heavier lead-free curtains may cause the product to catch or stack up on the conveyor belt. They can also be used effectively on jar inspection systems.

An ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW) film is applied to one side to increase x-ray curtain durability in high wear applications.  The low friction surface is perfect for inspection of lightweight packages.  No more product backups on the conveyor!

These lightweight curtains provide radiation shielding equal to 0.125 mm lead. To make a lead-free curtain, lead is replaced with non-toxic metals which block radiation.

By using a combination of heavy metals, we have created ultralight weight x-ray curtains that weigh less than traditional x-ray curtains and are only 0.6 mm thick, which is 30% thinner that lead-free vinyl.

Our ultralight UHMW x-ray curtains are now available in 0.25 mm Pb (lead-free). At only 1.0 mm thick, they are 30% thinner than traditional 0.25 mm Pb lead-free vinyl. 

Custom cut x-ray curtains are available for any model of x-ray system.  Send us an email with a drawing of your template to

Our ultralight x-ray curtains are also ROHS & REACH Compliant.
