New X-ray inspection from Mettler Toledo

06 July 2010

Mettler Toledo Safeline has released two x-ray inspection systems which it says offers improved detection at high production speeds on can manufacturing lines

The InspireX R50S 400 AFD and InspireX R50SB 200 can inspect cans spaced rim-to-rim, allowing contaminant detection for up to 1500 cans per minute. The new systems feature reduced focal length and improved beam angles to enable faster throughput while maintaining optimal quality assurance.

The InspireX R50S 400 AFD (Adjustable Focal Distance) is an advanced single-beam solution able to detect contaminants in a wide range of can sizes. The system’s focal distance can be automatically adjusted for each can size, optimising detection and increasing operational flexibility. The InspireX R50SB 200 split-beam x-ray system has been specially designed for smaller metal cans - typically up to 400g/14 oz in size.

Both include METTLER TOLEDO Safeline’s new XTP contamination detection software that analyses products with the highest possible resolution. A detection signal that is up to four times stronger ensures more accurate detection of many contaminants, such as stainless steel, glass and high density plastic.
