X-ray Inspection

X-ray Inspection

METTLER TOLEDO Safeline X-ray inspection systems are a trusted provider of contamination detection and quality control. Food, beverage and pharmaceutical manufacturers worldwide rely on in-line x-ray inspection systems to protect the welfare of consumers and safeguard brand reputations, minimize the risk of expensive product recalls and help with regulatory compliance.

Safeline X-ray product inspection machines offer safety and quality assurance at every stage of the production process for raw, bulk-flow (loose), pumped and packaged products. Neither foil nor metallized film packaging affect the sensitivity of contaminant detection by x-ray.

Safeline X-ray systems ensure maximum contamination detection sensitivity and high throughputs for a diverse range of food and pharmaceutical applications of various types. Typical applications include foil and plastic containers, cartons/boxes, foil pouches, bags and sacks, trays, tubes, sachets, flow-wraps, Tetra Pak, PET bottles and blister packs.

Contamination Detection
X-ray systems for product inspection deliver outstanding contamination detection of contaminants like glass, metal, mineral stone, calcified bone and high density plastics irrespective of their size, shape or location within packaged products. Safeline’s x-ray systems can find metal contaminants even in foil or metallized film packaging. Unlike traditional inspection systems, our machines are not affected by changes in product temperature or moisture, thus ensuring minimum false rejects.

Product Quality Checks
Safeline X-ray inspection equipment can simultaneously enhance productivity by inspecting products for a range of quality control checks. These include: measuring gross and zoned mass; counting components; identifying missing or broken products; monitoring overall and zoned fill levels for portion control to protect profitability; inspecting seal integrity and checking for damaged products and packaging for complete product integrity.

Reduced Total Cost of Ownership
Safeline X-ray inspection systems for packaged food and pharmaceutical products are the most advanced development in inspection capability. They offer an energy efficient and adaptable solution available with a range of power options; some models don’t require a cooling system due to low power consumption, contributing to a reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for customers. Safeline X-ray systems are the most energy efficient systems on the market.
