X-Ray Inspection Equipment For Food Manufacturers: NextGuard C500

X-Ray Inspection Equipment For Food Manufacturers: NextGuard  C500

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.
