Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection has launched an X-ray inspection solution with high detection sensitivity into the Pan-Asia market.

The Mettler-Toledo Safeline X12 X-ray system is equipped with Mettler-Toledo’s ContamPlus X-ray inspection software algorithms which are designed to enhance detection capabilities for a wide range of contaminants.

Designed to meet the needs of food manufacturers producing packaged products, the system can provide an affordable X-ray solution that features ease of operation, maintenance and servicing, as well as improved safety features.

The system is capable of operating at speeds of up to 60 m/min to inspect packaged products for foreign body contaminants including glass shards, metal fragments, mineral stone, calcified bone, dense plastic and rubber compounds. Simultaneously, it performs a wide range of inline quality checks of both the product and pack, such as counting components. The quality checks can help to uphold brand integrity and protect the consumer from substandard product.

Product set-up is automated, and the large 15.6″ touchscreen HMI can be programmed for multiple product set-ups, with no limit on product changeovers. Available with a wide range of language and character key entry capabilities, the HMI software helps to reduce errors in inputting product and job names, as well as single click shortcuts to access additional product information. The X-ray system is available with Mettler-Toledo’s ProdX data management software, giving users access to a range of digital productivity and security benefits.

Safety features have been a major consideration in the design of the system. It has been designed high global safety standards, including those specified by the European Union (CE) and USA (FDA), to minimise the risks of injury to operators. Fail-safe interlocks inside access doors and hand sensors in infeed/outfeed areas will shut the machine down when activated. The system also features radiation protection of <1 uSv/h to help keep operators safe.

Other features include: improved hygienic design based on rounded frame tubes and sloping surfaces, designed to be self-draining — this eliminates water pooling and makes cleaning easier; quick-release front belt and curtain frame, taking one minute to take off and clean — this saves time in cleaning and maintenance processes; high build quality, with IP (Ingress Protection) rating options of IP65 and IP66 available; improved servicing through quick access and easy replacement of key components through front-facing access panel — this also helps in making efficient use of floor space; and remote operation option where users are able to access and control the X12 system from any browser-based device.
