X-Ray Scanner X-Ray Inspection of Bulk Materials
The SC-B X-ray scanner by Wipotec is the ideal entry point for quality X-ray inspection of incoming raw material. Foreign body detection at the beginning of the production process leads to optimisation of the line efficiency by reducing product losses and downtimes.
In contrast to the end-of-line check, contamination is removed before processing, thus reducing the number of products ejected.
Monitoring of production process
Large foreign bodies, such as metal parts, can damage machines and may be split into many small, undetectable fragments. X-ray inspection at the beginning and end of the production line supports monitoring of the production process. Foreign bodies, which appear at the end of the line, are frequently the cause of damage to production machines. Once the source of the foreign body has been found, it is possible to initiate repairs or the procurement of spare parts at an early stage.
The high-tech X-ray scanner is ideally suited to use with dry bulk goods, such as rice, coffee, nuts or other loose products, states the firm.
Constructed entirely of stainless steel in protection class IP65, the X-ray scanner meets the highest hygiene requirements, adds the company. Bevelled surfaces and C-shaped product space ensure easy and thorough cleaning. Compact in design, the X-ray scanner is very easy to integrate into existing production lines. Even the basic version has a diode line scan detector with 0.4 mm resolution. Various ejection systems, such as multiple air blast nozzles, make it possible to remove impurities from the production process with minimum loss of product.
The company’s X-ray scanner is the perfect investment for users who are looking for a highly professional solution to foreign body detection, concludes the firm.
