To help x-ray inspection machine owners get the most out of their investment, Eagle Product Inspection offers suggestions for optimizing peak performance during the lifecycle of the equipment.
According to Travis Ratcliff, Service Manager, North America, operators can take some simple but crucial steps to ensure that their x-ray machines are operating at the best and most consistent level. “There’s a lot on the line when it comes to safety and quality, so inspection equipment has to run as optimally as possible. In addition to choosing a well-constructed, rugged machine that is built to last, maintenance and planning go a long way in achieving that optimal operation,” he says.
Ratcliff suggests three areas of action for maximizing x-ray system efficiency and simultaneously lowering the total cost of ownership of the equipment:
Ratcliff emphasizes the importance of planning for the unplanned by having a network support plan in place, including remote support, for faster response time in the event of any problem or issue with the machinery. “As with anything – another piece of processing equipment, a vehicle or an appliance – x-ray machines wear over time. But these are ways that manufacturers can get the best and longest performance out of their systems and their investment,” he says.
