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.
Dewetron provides the whole strobe cam package, including trigger probe, timing engine and Dewesoft.
The Memograph videographic recorder saves, displays, analyses and stores eight to 16 analogue or seven to 37 digital inputs.
Matrox Imaging has launched Design Assistant 4 (DA 4) flow-chart-based, hardware-independent machine-vision software that allows users to easily deploy inspection projects to any PC with GigE Vision or USB3 Vision cameras.
