X-Ray for Packed Products

NextGuard Conveyor X-Ray Detection System

Transition easily and quickly from metal detection to x-ray inspection with the versatile Thermo Scientific NextGuard Conveyor X-ray Detection System. The NextGuard system offers enhanced capabilities to inspect packaged products for missing pieces or components, under and over-fills, and other quality problems with easily customizable vision software.

  • 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.
