AKM and Radiation

We have a customer that will be using AKM's to position an armament for X-Ray inspection. Without too many details on what frequency spectrum and intensity, what kind of precautions can we take to maximize the life of the AKM and cabling? From experience with past inspection machines, our customer is aware that motors will be replaced every couple years.

Any material with high density or a high atomic number such as lead can be used as a shield for gamma and x-ray typically. That can help in decreasing the effects of the radiation directly on the equipment. There are tons of companies that sell various lead materials that could work for your application, vinyl coated lead or lead glass for example. Hope this helps
