Smiths Detection Sells its 1000th leading 3D X-ray Scanner

Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and security screening technologies, today announces that it has achieved the 1,000th sale of its HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX computed tomography (CT) X-ray scanner.

The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX produces high-resolution volumetric 3D images for quicker and deeper baggage assessment and automatic explosive detection with low false-alarm rates. This provides an advanced security screening experience that allows passengers to leave electronic devices and liquids in their hand luggage, enabling passengers to move through airport security checkpoints faster, without compromising on safety. The state-of-the-art security scanner ultimately leads to greater safety outcomes, more efficient operations and improved passenger satisfaction.

Already in use in airports around the world, the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX has been shown to reduce time spent at security by up to 50%, with 90% of passengers at Milan Linate Airport passing through security in fewer than five minutes.

“This is a significant achievement for us at Smiths Detection and is reflective of the remarkable system that the team have produced,” said Philo Daniel, global director aviation and urban security. “Not only does the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX generate the highest quality images, but it also helps make faster decisions and has the quickest belt speed on the market – all of which contributes to getting passengers through security faster, while helping to make the world a safer place.”

In addition, the HI-SCAN 6040 boasts the lowest energy consumption of its type, which not only helps customers achieve their sustainability goals but helps to reduce noise and heat emitting from the system – resulting in a calmer security screening experience and a low cost of ownership.

The system has ECAC EDS CB C3 approval and featured on TSA’s CPSS QPL & APL for base, medium and large configuration checkpoint CT checkpoint screening systems. The CTiX scanner is also STAC, ENAC and IPMO approved, and has TSA APSS v6.2 Level 1 certification.

Earlier this year, Smiths Detection announced the launch of the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX Model S, which offers the same high-standards with a smaller footprint. This system has already achieved ECAC EDS CB C3 certification in Europe, with further local approvals to follow.
