Easy to use solution to detect foreign bodies in raw materials

19 June 2017

Dymond Bulk is the most recent addition to Minebea Intec’s X-ray inspection product portfolio. It was developed specifically with bulk goods in mind, and is said to be suitable for processes between incoming goods and packaging lines in the food industry. 

Dymond Bulk is able to identify metal, plastic and stone foreign bodies as well as bits of dirt and glass, which has benefits for all goods that are introduced into the production process straight from the field. 

The X-ray inspection system has been designed to be user friendly. Complex technologies have consciously been simplified for users and it includes a straightforward and intuitive HMI – from the menu navigation to the real-time detection via colour-based contamination analysis. The design of the system also follows hygienic design principles, which allows simple changing of the belt and easy cleaning of the inspection system. An optional multi-ejector with four ejection segments guarantees the targeted and economical elimination of foreign bodies from the product stream.
