Mettler-Toledo Safeline X-ray inspection can detect numerous quality shortfalls that lie hidden within product packaging or deep within the product itself.  In this newsletter, we want to discuss how x-ray inspection is no longer just a technique for catching contaminants; it's become a wide-ranging tool for defending brand values and keeping customers happy.


X-ray Inspection - More Than Just Contamination Detection

Since the early 1990s, the food and pharmaceutical industries have relied on x-ray technology to detect potentially harmful contaminants, such as glass and metal, to protect consumers, and maintain brand reputations.  However, did you know that Safeline X-ray Systems are multi-tasking defenders of product and brand quality, as well as detectors of contaminants?  In a single pass at high line speeds, x-ray systems can perform several inspection tasks simultaneously, including: 


  • Measuring product length, width, area and volume
  • Identifying missing or broken products
  • Monitoring fill level
  • Measuring mass
  • Inspecting for compromised seals

...while still catching contaminants.

X-ray inspection equipment gives manufacturers the tools to maintain quality control and product integrity at every stage of production for raw, bulk, pumped and packaged products.


By setting appropriate parameters and fine-tuning the sensitivity, manufacturers can investigate numerous quality issues from catching contaminants to checking that a product looks exactly as a customer expects it to look.  The product that successfully passes x-ray inspection contains no shocks, surprises or disappointments.  The manufacturer knows that it fulfills its brand promise.
