X-ray inspection systems provide complete operational confidence to food and pharmaceutical manufacturers and their retail channels through innovative technical solutions derived from consumer and industry insights.
X-ray Inspection Systems Built with Global Standards in Mind
X-ray inspection systems ensure product safety and integrity in order to avoid product recalls and customer complaints. They help manufacturers to achieve compliance with HACCP and retailer requirements as well as national and international regulations.
X-ray Inspection Systems Provide Complete Product Integrity
X-ray inspection technology offers exceptional contamination detection, such as glass, metal, stone and high-density plastics, even for products packaged in foil or metallised film. In addition x-ray systems can simultaneously perform a wide-range of in-line quality checks. These include measuring mass, counting components, identifying missing or broken products, monitoring fill levels, inspecting seal integrity and checking for damaged packaging.
Small & Medium Sized Packaging
X-ray inspection systems ensure product safety and integrity for a wide variety of small and medium products in the food and pharmaceutical industry. X-ray systems are a cost-effective solution to inspect end of line products to avoid product recalls and customer complaints.
Typical applications for small and medium sized packs could be products in flow-wraps, pouches, cartons, trays and cases.
X-ray inspection systems work on absorption difference rather than conductivity. X-ray systems can therefore detect ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel even in foil or metallised film packaging. In addition x-ray systems do not suffer from changes in product temperature or moisture like traditional inspection systems ensuring minimum false rejects.X-ray inspection systems deliver the highest detection sensitivity ensuring accuracy, reliability and ease of operation.
Large Sized Packaging
X-ray inspection systems for large packaged products are typically installed at the end of the production line for final product inspection. Examples may be cartons/cases with multiple small finished packs or large bags/sacks of loose products.
X-ray inspection systems ensure that customer complaints, safety scares and product recalls are avoided and highest product quality is achieved.
X-ray inspection systems for large sized packagings have a small footprint, even with a large machine aperture and fit easily into existing production lines. X-ray inspection systems can have an optional barcode reader fitted to automatically recall the best inspection settings for each product size – ensuring maximum sensitivity.
Tall Rigid Containers
X-ray inspection systems for tall rigid containers are primarily used for packaged products that are taller than they are wide like e.g. composite cans, tetra packs, PET bottles, glass jars and metal cans.
Custom Design Safeline X-ray offers a wide range of horizontal beam x-ray inspection systems and combination beam x-ray inspection system. These x-ray systems can be customised to suit a wide range of applications of tall rigid containers ensuring maximum detection sensitivity and high throughputs.
