Mettler-Toledo AXR-P X-ray inspection system

Wednesday, 27 February, 2013 | Supplied by: Mettler-Toledo Ltd


Mettler-Toledo has launched an enhanced version of its X-ray technology, the AXR-P, which is designed to help manufacturers ensure the safety and integrity of packaged products.

Able to examine products for foreign body contamination and other quality defects, it offers manufacturers greater quality control to boost production and comply with food safety standards to operate in international markets. The machine helps brand owners meet requirements of local legislation for the inclusion of more rigorous data monitoring on production lines, with storage of product inspection data for both conforming and non-conforming products.

The system’s advanced CPU promotes greater line efficiency and stronger quality control by allowing faster data processing and detection sensitivity at higher throughput speeds than traditional X-ray systems. Edge-threshold technology enhances detection of foreign bodies, such as metal, glass, mineral stone, calcified bone and high-density plastic and rubber, regardless of their shape or location within the product.

In addition, the more powerful CPU permits higher-speed signal transmission between X-ray detector and rejection device, giving the AXR-P a compact footprint of 2 m in length, making it suitable for manufacturers with limited space.

The device is also capable of ensuring products consistently meet manufacturers’ standards and specifications by simultaneously performing multiple inline quality checks, including gross mass measurement, identification of missing or broken components and examination of packaging for damage and seal integrity.

The system’s easy-to-use HMI enables operators to select and move images into a graphical user interface (GUI) for closer examination, as well as compare data from other products in the batch.
