The AXIS-3D® baggage scanning system offers real-time 3D x-ray images. Ideal for security scanning of baggage and small packages at high security facilities, stadiums and events. 


AXIS-3D® employs unique and innovative technology to provide the operator with real-time 3D x-ray images. The operator is able to see, for example, whether a wire passes behind, in front of, or into a substance or container, enabling the operator to recognise and confirm threat and non-threat items more easily. The AXIS-3D® has a robust, ergonomically designed keyboard and intuitive software , both designed for ease of use.



Enhanced 3D visualisation and simple to use image processing tools enable the operator to make fast and accurate decisions, thereby increasing throughput and decreasing the incidence of false alarms or missed threats.



Training time to competence for screeners is significantly reduced using AXIS-3D® and operational performance is enhanced. Independent verification by the USA Transport Security Administration confirmed that using the AXIS-3D® system significantly improved the probability of an operator detecting a threat item when compared with conventional systems. AXIS systems provide a competitively priced solution for standard screening scenarios.
