Smiths Detection has launched HI-SCAN 180180-2is
pro, an advanced dual-view X-ray system for screening large-scale
freight, air cargo and mail.
HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro is an advanced
version of the HI-SCAN 180180-2is.

current global legal requirements for 100% inspection of air cargo
on passenger flights, and reflects the increasing need for
X-ray units capable of screening LD3 containers as well as the

which minimizes the required floor space and the associated
