Taking quality inspection to the next level

19 December 2022

Ishida is launching a top-of-the-range X-ray inspection system that incorporates new sensor and image processing technology to achieve high levels of detection sensitivity.

The Ishida IX-PD is capable of detecting both low-density and very small size foreign bodies whilst maintaining high productivity rates.

Combined with the company’s Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Dual Energy technologies, the new machine is said to produce an ultra-high resolution and clearer image than conventional X-ray systems. This allows the IX-PD to offer enhanced detection for low-density items including bones in fish fillets and also minute foreign bodies such as stainless-steel wires. In addition, the new model is capable of reliably detecting foreign bodies in applications where products are overlapping or standing up in a pack.

In tests, the IX-PD demonstrated near 100% detection rates for bones in a variety of products including chicken, diced meat and sausages, for example achieving an increase from 40% to 100% compared to existing X-ray technologies for the detection of bone in chicken breast fillets.
