For few years, the requirements regarding radiation portal monitors strongly increased, involving new developments. Also the needs from the customers and the market became higher. Nowadays, radiation monitoring systems need to provide more sophisticated measurement reports, work with less false alarm and detect very low radioactive sources.
Voestalpine, one of the leading partners to the automotive and consumer goods industries in Europe, is an important customer on this market. This group sets up very restrictive standards to guaranty the quality of its supplier material. The LR Leitl Company (located in Eggenfelden, Germany), supplier of vostalpine, is an historical Saphymo’s customer. Leitl asked Saphymo to install a radiation portal monitor able to be conform to the restrictive voestalpine requisites.
