    Company Profile
    Autoclear’s roots trace back to 1938 as part of Philips Electronics. In 1988, they became a privately-owned New Jersey-based company known as Control Screening. They evolved through acquisition. In addition to the Philips Scan-tech line, they acquired the Federal Laboratories Checkgate Division and Canadian based Scintrex Limited, which added Metal Detection Equipment and state of the art trace detection for narcotics and explosives. The innovative Cross-Enhanced Backscatter systems were developed internally by the Autoclear development team.

    Autoclear X-ray Scanners are not only used in major school systems throughout the United States, but two of the three largest theme parks in the United States now use Autoclear threat detection equipment to help assure the safety of their guests. Autoclear’s easy to operate design makes it possible for those parks to screen thousands of guests every day.

    scanner Autoclear Case Study
    In 2006, a major school district in the Kansas City area decided to purchase laptop computers for all its high school students. As part of that decision, the administration determined that the security at the front door should also be upgraded. The unusual thing about this situation was that the administration wanted x-ray scanners at the front door, but the security department did not. Usually, the feelings are just the opposite. Screening officers felt that they could perform a complete search of a student’s bag in just a few seconds.

    Autoclear offered to put in a demo machine for one week so that the effectiveness of the scanners could easily be measured. The machine was installed on a Friday afternoon and the officers were trained. Previously, it would take about 25 minutes for all the students to be screened. On Monday after the machine was installed, it took 35 minutes to get the students in the building. But on Friday, after the learning curve was overcome, it took less than 15 minutes to admit all the students. While the usual knives and other small weapons were expected to be found, they were surprised to find that about 30 percent of the students were bringing scissors into class (large sharp sewing scissors). This resulted in machines being purchased for every high school in the district. Four years later, every elementary school in the district also received Autoclear machines.

    The installation of Autoclear machines allowed students to enter the building quicker, security officers performed more thorough searches, and a safer environment was created for students of the district.
