The collimator is an essential equipment for X-ray projection and protection

Beam limiter can also be called collimator. It is an electromechanical optical device installed in front of the output window of the X-ray tube assembly. The main function of collimator is to control the irradiation field of the X-ray tube output line so that it can meet the Under the premise of X-ray imaging and diagnosis, reduce the projection range as much as possible to avoid unnecessary doses; and can absorb some scattered rays to improve image clarity. In addition, the collimator can also indicate the size of the projection center and projection field of view. Therefore, the collimator is an indispensable auxiliary equipment for X-ray projection and protection.
The collimator uses a special connector to be fixed and integrated with the flange plate of the tube window, and can rotate within a certain range. The focus position required when installing the collimator is consistent with the focus position of the actual X-ray tube assembly. With the development of the X-ray machine host, the collimatoe has also evolved from simple to complex in structure and from single to multi-purpose in function, including electric, simple, manual and so on.
Newheek’s collimators mainly include NK103, NK102 and NK202, and can also be customized according to customer requirements. If you have any needs, please contact us!
