A video, which has gone viral on social media, shows the unidentified woman getting down from the conveyor belt.
The incident happened about 6pm on Sunday at Dongguan railway station in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong.
The woman reportedly didn't trust train security staff with her handbag.
The woman had willingly placed her suitcases for the security check but later when it was pointed out that her handbag would be treated no differently, her reluctance transpired.
Security officers did not stop the woman who collected her other bags before going to catch her train.
Despite the best efforts of the machine's operators to deter the woman, she travelled through full length of the conveyor and emerged unscathed along with assorted items of baggage, at the far end.

A video of the whole incident was posted on Facebook by PearVideo.
An obviously bewildered staff wasn't really clear on the valuables the bag contained that made the woman do something so unwonted, but the assumption is that it probably had a lot of cash, given out as a tradition in Chinese New Year.
Eerie X-ray images of a Chinese woman crawling through a luggage scanner at a railway station have become the latest smash hit on a video sharing website.
With millions of people on the move across China for the new year, security arrangements can be unforgiving, especially if you are asked to part with your designer handbag for scanning.
I wish I loved anything enough to follow it through a machine and get radiation.
