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.
Sensl’s B-series of fast, blue-sensitive silicon photomultiplier sensors, available from AP Technologies, is designed for ultra-fast timing applications.
This data sheet from Pacer presents the Tachyon FPA series of infrared imaging detectors, which comprises the 6400 FPA and the 1024 FPA. Both are high speed, have digital interfaces and are uncooled.
Legible, accurate barcodes have never been more important than they are today, when automated supply chains depend on data accuracy to ensure the reliable performance of global operations. Machine vision verification is one tool that can be used to ensure that barcodes meet a consistent level of quality for readability in an automated process, and that bad codes are identified before they result in costly failures. This white paper from Microscan introduces 1D and 2D barcode verification ...
