X-Ray Inspection System Protects Packaged Products

Mettler-Toledo Safeline, Inc. introduces AdvanChek – a cost-effective X-ray contaminant inspection system for packaged products. Using Safeline’s low-energy X-ray technology, the AdvanChek reliably detects and rejects many contaminants, including metal, stone, glass and bone.

With a user-intuitive, color touch-screen interface, the system requires minimal training; operators will be comfortable using AdvanChek in less than 30 minutes due to its unique automatic set-up feature, according to the company. AdvanChek’s modular design has three main modules that are quickly replaceable, ensuring maximum uptime. The AdvanChek X-ray system’s small and flexible footprint enables easy integration into any production line. The system's washdown-protected enclosure is built to NEMA 12 specifications and is upgradeable to NEMA 4X (suitable for high-pressure, hot or caustic washdown environments). All material-handling and reject systems are custom-designed and manufactured in-house, specific to each application.

The manufacturer states that AdvanChek's easy operation, flexible design, modular construction and improved reliability ensure low start up costs and the lowest lifetime costs of any X-ray system on the market.
