Xray Can Contamination

Metal cans are used extensively across the food industry to package various products such as meat, fish/ seafood, fruit and vegetables, soups and infant feeding products, mainly milk powder. However, inspecting metal cans for physical contaminants and quality defects using x-ray inspection systems have traditionally proved challenging for a number of reasons.

This white paper begins by explaining why metal cans are becoming increasingly popular and looking at different types of cans, before exploring the challenges the packaging material and can design presents for x-ray inspection. The paper then looks at the various x-ray inspection systems on the market today, along with recent developments in x-ray technology which are designed to overcome such challenges to provide optimal inspection of metal cans.
