X-ray systems

The POWERx(TM) line of x-ray systems for food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications consists of 16 models capable of inspecting products ranging from small glass vials to large multipack cases. The line uses high-resolution detectors and image-analysis software to achieve high sensitivities and the lowest false reject rates, the co. says. Virtual Contaminant Testing software is available to simulate various types, sizes and positions of contaminants to determine how to achieve the best performance in each application. Select models in the POWERx family comply with the FDA's code of federal regulations 21 CFR 21 Part 11. The line also features models for upright and horizontal package orientations, x-ray design and image analysis, remote access hardware and software for support and service, extendable detection and inspection software, mass-measurement software and more. S and D models are designed for foreign body detection in containers such as cans, bottles and boxes, while the model C is for end-of-line case applications.
