An X-ray inspection system from Accuweigh was recently hired by a dairy products supplier to locate potential metal contaminants in a large batch of packaged dairy products.
Accuweigh’s Melbourne branch arranged the hire of an X-ray inspection system to locate small metal parts found to be missing from a machine used in the production process.
The entire day’s production was quarantined until each and every item was passed through Accuweigh’s XR-3000 X-ray inspection system.
Although the food products were packaged in foil containers, the X-ray inspection system easily identified the contaminated containers containing the missing metal components until every metal contaminant had been found and accounted for.
Accuweigh’s X-ray food inspection systems can scan items at very high speed and retain images of each item containing potential contaminants including metal, bone, glass and some high density rubber or plastics.
A bonus feature in these X-ray inspection systems is their ability to identify variances in mass such as ensuring each packed carton contains the correct number of packaged objects.
Accuweigh is the exclusive distributor of the XR-3000 series of X-ray inspection systems manufactured in Australia by Applied Sorting in Melbourne.
Accuweigh’s branches across Australia provide full after sales service support on all types of X-ray food inspection systems.
