X-Ray for Glass Jar and Can Lines

Referred as the “side up”, the Glass, Jar and Can Line works best for food or non-food products in glass or plastic containers like jars or bottles. X-Ray systems inspect for a full range of possible contaminants including metallic, and non-metallic (glass, ceramic, stone, bone, rubber, plastic etc.). Cassel X-rays can inspect metallic and non-metallic packaging and canned goods. Inspection is not affected by temperature, humidity, salt content or any other product effects.

  • X-Ray detector is low noise line scan CCD, diode pitch 0.8 mm
  • X-ray source is single beam x-ray generator with max. 120kV (400W), beam shoots sideways through the product, variable in voltage + current, integrated closed oil cooling circuit
  • Conveyor speed by product 0.3 to 0.8 m/sec (7 fixed speed steps)
  • Conveyor type is modular chain link belt, Stainless Steel
  • 250 different product set-ups
  • Flow rate maximum 100 pieces per minute
  • Maximum product dimensions 150mm 0 x 250 mm height


How the X-Ray for Glass, Jar, and Can Lines Works:

X-Ray inspection is sorting based on product density. An X-Ray inspection machine takes an image that is pixel based. The machine compares pixel density to stored pictures of “good” product to detect defects and contaminants. If the density of a product falls outside of acceptable range the reject mechanism removes the contaminated product out of the product flow.
