X-ray inspection system conducts 10 product integrity checks

Operates at a rate of 60 meters a minute

The METTLER TOLEDO Safeline X39 X-ray inspection system detects and rejects nonconforming frozen formed beef, pork, chicken, fish and vegetarian burger patties. In stage one of the inspection process, integrated laser technology performs a preliminary brand integrity check for flake defects, as well as length, width and height irregularities. In the second stage, the system inspects for foreign-body contaminants and additional product defects, such as holes, dents, edge deformities, mass and shape. Air nozzles reject substandard product from the conveyor in the first stage and into a secondary rework receptacle in the second stage.
