Packages of sliced ham, etc., are checked to ensure none of the contents is caught in sealed parts.
Inspects voids and air bubbles entrapped in retort food, cheese, or butter for maintaining freshness.
|[Count detection] Inspects the number of pieces per pack of vertically packed biscuits or cookies.
||[Virtual weight detection] Shortages in the number of items in a package can be found when the amount is displayed as number of contained pieces and detecting such shortages based on mass is difficult, because each piece has variable mass.
The shape, area and mass are analyzed from x-ray images to find irregularities including breaks and chips. Missing fillings can also be spotted.
Detection sensitivity is improved by masking according to product characteristics such as forms and shapes.
Anritsu safety mechanism
X-ray shield cover open/close sensor
Opening the cover stops X-ray radiation.
X-ray Inspection System has been designed to fully satisfy the safe operation. However, to ensure even higher safety, use the safety procedures outlined below.
Safety of inspected products
WHO concluded in 1980 that the “irradiation of any food commodity up to an overall average dose of 10 kGy presents no
toxicological hazard and introduces no special nutritional or microbiological problems.”
The maximum dose of x-ray irradiation to the products to be inspected by our x-ray inspection systems is 0.002 Gy, which is
much lower than the value described above. Even if a product stops inside, the x-ray dose is always kept to 0.1 Gy or less.
