Varex Linatron® M6

The Linatron™ M product family represents some of the most popular X-ray linear accelerators available for the security and NDT markets. These accelerators are available in several versions that vary by output energy and shielding, as well as other customer-specific features.

The Linatron M6 offers a nominal 6 MeV output, allowing more penetration than the M3 and making it suitable for inspecting larger objects. It is used for both security and NDT applications. The output is nominally 6 MeV, but the dual energy versions (M6A) are available with a second, switchable lower energy output.

Our high-energy Linatron™ (linear accelerators also known as Linacs) can be found in most cargo screening systems worldwide. They reliably generate the necessary energy to fully penetrate completely loaded shipping containers and provide excellent materials discrimination.

As Varex Imaging continues to innovate and advance imaging technologies, our portfolio of linear accelerators includes interlaced, dual-energy technology that offers even greater material discrimination than ever before, including options to alternate X-ray energies on a pulse-to-pulse basis.
