X-ray inspection system for bulk goods

11 December 2017

Minebea Intec is continuing to expand its foreign body detection product range with the introduction of the new Dymond Bulk X-ray inspection system. 

Designed specifically with bulk goods in mind, the X-ray inspection device is said to be well suited to use in processes between incoming goods and packaging lines in the food industry. 

Dymond Bulk inspects bulk goods such as nuts, smaller fruits, frozen vegetables, and also spices, coffee and seeds, eliminating any foreign bodies it identifies. It can identify foreign bodies made from metal, plastic and stone, as well as dirt and glass, which has benefits for goods that are introduced into the production process ‘straight from the field. Detecting and removing these foreign bodies from the material flow at the start of the process can also help to protect products and machines.

With the design of the new system a conscious effort was made to simplify the complex technology for the user – from real-time detection via colour-based contamination analysis, through to straightforward belt replacement and an easy-to-clean inspection system.

A range of interfaces including OPC-UA, Modbus, USB and Ethernet also ensure that the system can be integrated into existing processing systems and data can be shared.
