PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Perfected glass in glass inspection during a full container inspection

The trend towards returnable glass bottles continues. This makes a glass in glass detection in full containers at the end of the line all the more important. The HEUFT eXaminer II XOS reaches a new level of detection reliability and availability due to the enhanced performance and lifetime of the exclusive pulsed X-ray technology and perfected software. The further developed system identifies tiny glass splinters even more reliably during the double radiometric base inspection.

The optimised technology offers real innovations especially during the generation of X-ray pulses. On the one hand this provides significantly more coverage. On the other hand increased sensitivity is achieved in conjunction with new full-field image converters so that even small as well as weaker absorbing objects can be better detected. X-ray flashes lasting no longer than a millisecond are emitted instead of continuous X-rays for this – in fact only at that moment when a full bottle to be examined passes the inspection area. Using a minimum amount of radiation this prevents motion blurs which can impair the detection reliability at high line speeds.
And all this with an optimised lifetime regarding all the X-ray modules so that downtimes are virtually eliminated. The user is informed early enough so that he has sufficient time for preventive maintenance before the total failure of important components can occur. Essential X-ray components are even integrated redundantly: if one fails the other takes over directly without having to stop the entire filling line.

The full container inspector is the only one of its kind with additional high-performance optics for detecting mould, paper or transparent film in the beverage.

X-ray as well as camera images are combined and analysed by the in-house developed HEUFT reflexx2 image processing system in real
time.
