The beam limiter can also be called an X-ray collimator. It is an electromechanical optical device installed in front of the output window of the tube assembly of the X-ray machine. The main function of the collimator is to control the output range of the tube, so that it can reduce the projection range as much as possible on the premise of satisfying the X-ray imaging and diagnosis, and avoid unnecessary radiation dose. And can absorb some scattered light to improve image clarity.
In addition, the x-ray collimator can also indicate the projection center and the size of the projection field of view. Therefore, the x-ray collimator is an indispensable auxiliary device for x-ray projection and protection. The x-ray collimator uses a special connector to integrate with the tube, which can rotate within a certain range. The focus position required when installing the X-ray collimator is consistent with the focus position of the actual X-ray machine tube. With the development of the X-ray machine host, the X-ray collimator has also changed from simple to complex in structure, and from single to multi-purpose in function, including electric, manual, automatic, etc.
The X-ray collimators produced by our Newheek mainly include NK103, NK102, and NK202, which can also be customized according to customer requirements. If you have any needs, please call the customer service hotline!
