The New METTLER TOLEDO X37 X-Ray Inspection System Detects And Rejects Contaminants In Vertical Packages Such As Beverage Bottles And Cans

Tampa FL - The new METTLER TOLEDO X37-ray inspection system series, including the X3710, X3720 and X3730, was developed specifically to deliver efficient, cost-effective production line x-ray inspection of products in vertical packaging such as bottles, cartons, cans and canisters. The X37 system provides a highly adaptable solution that fits individual situations by offering a wide range of features. The new system also features higher-sensitivity sensors, which requires lower 20W X-ray generator power consumption to complete its inspections, eliminating the need for active cooling of the generator and reducing both Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and unit size.

The X37 system inspects metal, glass, rigid plastic and fiberboard containers and can reliably detect contaminants such as metal, stone, glass, calcified bone, high density plastics such as teflon and rubber compounds like viton, that can lead to brand image damage and possible liability lawsuits. Contaminated containers are automatically rejected from the line before they can leave the facility. The system’s full color touch screen user interface withstands high-pressure washdown and intuitive software simplifies operation, with no time-consuming manual changeover operations or specialized knowledge of X-ray inspection technology. Diverse connectivity options provide multiple methods to interact with the system and retrieve statistics and images, including PackML and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). The X37 Series offers horizontal single-beam and split-beam solutions to meet different inspection needs and to ensure reliable and consistent inspection for all types of tall, rigid container applications. High throughput levels of up to 1,800 containers per minute can be achieved, depending on the application. X37 systems can be installed onto existing production lines without slowing down line speeds. The flexible standard modular design of the X37 can be fully configured to individual application requirements. With a choice of a 0.4mm or 0.8mm detector, optimum inspection results are achieved, even in the most demanding production environments.
