As demand for ready meals grows, so does the need to detect contaminants in products bound for human consumption. Eagle Product Inspection offers advanced x-ray equipment that provides detection of foreign bodies that can wind up in sub-compartments in ready meals, whether those meals are refrigerated, shelf stable or frozen.
I was fortunate enough to attend PACK EXPO Las Vegas last month to see many of these machines that are new to market. From combination X-ray and checkweigher systems, to metal detectors and vision systems, the takeaway was flexibility and high speed action.
While standard X-ray inspection systems use powerful generators to inspect products, the X36 Series uses highly sensitive X-ray detectors that require a less powerful (20 watt) generator to produce the same results, making it the most energy-efficient X-ray system on the market.
