Find metallic and non-metallic foreign objects and eliminate “wet” product effects common with metal detectors with the Thermo Scientific™ NextGuard™ X-ray Detection Systems. Designed for a wide variety of food applications, NextGuard systems offer enhanced capabilities to inspect packaged products for missing pieces or components, under and over-fills, and other quality problems with easily customizable vision software. Both the Conveyor and C500 models are easy-to-use, cost effective and thoughtfully designed systems that eliminate common barriers when migrating from metal detection to x-ray inspection.


New and improved NextGuard X-ray Detection System Features:

  • Product verification software option allows users to execute a wide range of size, position and count inspections.
  • Additional algorithms target the detection of less dense contaminants such as glass or rocks in complex, textured products such as nuts or tea bag boxes.
  • Optional mass estimation software uses the density information in the X-ray image to estimate weight and detect under/over filled products.
  • Configurable for dual rejection, separating contaminated products from other quality errors.
  • Standard system processor is now six times faster than the first generation NextGuard system, supporting high-speed contaminant detection and inspection as well as improved user responsiveness.
  • Optional 0.4mm-pixel detector offers 3.2 times better resolution for improved metal detection in lightweight, homogeneous products such as powders or cheese.

Additional Benefits:

  • Compact size for easy installation and use
  • Unique non-linear detector to eliminate inspection blind spots
  • Removable conveyor for simple directional change and maintenance
  • Intuitive Thermo Scientific™ VersaWeigh™ user interface and software
  • Modular design for high reliability and quick diagnosis and repair
  • Source and detector lifetime indicators to minimize expensive downtime
  • Built-in remote monitoring for quick problem determination

Options to Customize Your System:

  • Complete rejection systems or rejection mechanisms for use on downstream conveyor
  • Stainless steel air conditioner for washdown environments
  • Alarm horn, no lead curtains, casters, guiderails
  • Radiation safety meters
  • UL or CSA site inspection
  • Spare parts kits
