Smiths Quadview detects glass in glass
Quadview X-ray systems
A blue-chip baby food manufacturer has installed Smiths Detection's Quadview X-ray systems.
The inspection systems allow detection of glass in glass while running online and analyses each product that passes through the system from four different viewpoints at online productions speeds of 850 to 1250 jars per minute.
The system is able to process 5,000 images per minute (1250 x 4) with Smiths' Simultask software.
This enables the full inspection of a sealed container for metal, stone, calcified bone and glass while running at production speeds, without the expense of multiple systems or manual labour.
The Eagle Quadview is installed over the existing conveyor line, eliminating the need for line integration expenses.
TSC Foods has installed a Smiths Detection Eagle Pack 240 X-ray with a twin air blast reject, for high-speed checkweighing.
Setton Pistachio bought Smiths Detection's Eagle Bulk 370 X-ray machine to detect foreign objects in pistachios.
Scorpion Vision has introduced the 3D Stinger camera, which is suitable for use in a variety of manufacturing sectors including food, automotive and heavy industries.
Pacer has introduced the TSL2584TSV — a high-sensitivity light-to-digital converter from ams that transforms light intensity into a digital signal output capable of direct I²C interface. Its tiny size opens up many new options for implementing display management in space-constrained designs.
Every infrared camera defines its field of view (FOV) across a horizontal or vertical axis. According to IRISS, there are two ways to determine the FOV on a camera: (1) you can calculate the FOV; or (2) you can measure the FOV with a practical field test. A practical FOV test is a quick method to determine what can be seen at set distances with your camera, the lens and infrared windows.
