How does the collimator work

The collimator, as the name suggests, acts to shrink the beam. The actual function is to first turn on the light on the collimator, and adjust the knobs in the X and Y directions of the collimator, so that the light of the collimator shines on the film box of your machine, so that the size of the light field is exactly the size of the film. Consistent, and then you can film. Because the machine must adjust the X-ray field and light field of the collimator to a minimum deviation before leaving the factory, this light field can simulate the invisible X-ray field.
