Detecting by x-ray

Friday, 29 October, 2004 | Supplied by: http://www.accuweigh.com.au/


Cintex Sentry XR uses the latest x-ray technology to detect product defects.

Traditional metal detectors can detect metal whereas the XR can find metal, stone, glass, dense plastics, bone and ceramics.

As long as the product is within 265 mm wide and 100 mm high the Sentry XR has the software to handle high-speed inspection of contamination, volume and size of product and contents. There are two inspection channels (contamination and missing product) and the x-ray set has a wide angled, self-cooled unit.

The conveyor has a belt width of 330 mm with 'flip up' tensioning and 'tool free' adjustable tracking. The height is 900 mm ±50 mm but other height ranges are available. The belt speed is adjustable via controller to between 10 and 70 m a minute.
