FOOD SAFETY

Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection launches new x-ray inspection solution

Royston, UK
Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection has launched a major new x-ray inspection solution with high detection sensitivity into the Pan-Asia market. The X12 is equipped with Mettler-Toledo’s ContamPlus x-ray inspection software algorithms which enhance detection capabilities for a wide range of contaminants. Designed to meet the needs of food manufacturers producing packaged products, the X12 is an affordable x-ray solution delivering advances in ease of operation, maintenance and servicing, as well as improved safety features.
 
Mike Pipe, head of global sales at Mettler-Toledo Safeline X-ray, said, “Food manufacturers place great importance in the reliability and sensitivity of their product inspection systems. As such, we have designed the X12 as an entry level x-ray system which provides contaminant detection and an additional layer of product safety and quality assurance checks all at a competitive price point with other inspection solutions”.
 
Pipe continued, “We haven’t made any compromises here: not only is the X12 a highly productive and reliable x-ray system, it is also easy to use. The cost effectiveness of the X12 gives every food manufacturer a lower total cost of ownership and a swift return on their investment. This is all backed up by Mettler-Toledo’s industry-leading levels of service and support”.
 
The X12 is capable of operating at speeds of up to 60 metres per minute to inspect packaged products for foreign body contaminants including glass shards, metal fragments, mineral stone, calcified bone, dense plastic and rubber compounds. Simultaneously, the X12 performs a wide range of valuable in-line quality checks of both the product and pack, such as counting components. The quality checks help to uphold brand integrity and protect the consumer from substandard product.
 
Product set-up is automated, and the large 15.6-inch touchscreen HMI can be programmed for multiple product set-ups, with no limit on product changeovers. Available with a wide range of language and character key entry capabilities, the HMI software helps to reduce errors in inputting product and job names, as well as single click shortcuts to access additional product information. The X12 x-ray system is available with Mettler-Toledo’s ProdX data management software, giving users access to a range of digital productivity and security benefits.
 
Safety features have been a major consideration in the design of the X12 system. It has been designed to the highest global safety standards, including those specified by the European Union (CE) and USA (FDA), to minimise the risks of injury to operators. Fail-safe interlocks inside access doors, and hand sensors in infeed/outfeed areas will shut the machine down when activated. The X12 also features radiation protection of <1uSv/h to help keep operators safe.
