Mettler-Toledo Launches X2 Series of X-ray Solutions For Enhanced Product Safety

Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection has launched the X2 Series of high-performing x-ray systems to help enhance product safety at an affordable price point for all food manufacturers. 

The design of the X2 Series helps enhance brand protection and product safety while also increasing product quality. Helping manufacturers to meet food safety compliance requirements, while also offering enhanced productivity, the X2 Series, delivers outstanding reliability with a smart industrial design. 

The X2 Series helps prevent product recalls with outstanding contamination detection capabilities that go beyond detecting just metal. The x-ray inspection technology inspects a wide range of contaminants, including glass, metal, mineral stone, calcified bone, dense plastic and rubber compounds whilst simultaneously completing a number of quality control and integrity checks. The X2 Series offers significant benefits both in-line and at end-of-line inspection by using innovative technology all designed for optimum performance and output.  

ContamPlus software is an innovative inspection process which scans products for every kind of contaminant and not just the ones optimized during the initial automatic product set-up. The automatic set-up detects the most hard-to-find foreign bodies and rejects only the contaminated products, reducing production waste and protecting productivity. This is especially crucial for food manufacturers, where product integrity and completeness is key as missing information or products can lead to costly recalls and, sometimes dangerous, results. 

ContamPlus facilitates new product set-up with just a few passes and without the need for complicated programming or extensive training. Product details are stored and easily recalled for smooth and fast product changeovers to help minimize downtime and boost productivity.  

Food manufacturers can significantly reduce cleaning output and maintenance routines as well as the need for complex operator training with the X2 Series’ front-opening hygienic design. Designed for efficient cleaning, the solution makes it easy for operators to perform regular maintenance routines. The conveyor belt can be removed swiftly and without tools by releasing the tension with the handle situated on the infeed roller. The lead-free, low friction curtains also allow smooth product transition through the machine, with the presence of curtains constantly monitored to help keep the operator safe.  

The new multi-fit reject device option is suitable for most common applications, with other options available on request. With reliable rejection and due diligence of products, the design enhances brand protection and helps ensure all end products are the optimum quality when they reach the customer. 

With the X2 Series, manufacturers are easily able to comply with industry standards and regulations through ProdX™, a data management software, which provides full traceability through an audit trail and recorded image database. A review of contaminated products is also easily managed with the new stainless steel reject bin, which safely collects substandard products to avoid production line contamination, allowing manufacturers to review the product and its contamination.  

Manufactured in Europe, the X2 Series consists of two models – the X12 and X32, both are available in multiple line configurations 800, 1300, 1800 and 2000 mm line lengths: 

  • X12 High Performance X-ray System: This high performing single-lane x-ray inspection system comes as standard and is available at an incredible price point, featuring the HiGain detector, which generates sharper images to deliver outstanding contaminant detection. 
  • X32 Advanced X-ray Solution: Offering enhanced sensitivity and product integrity performance, this x-ray inspection solution features the HiGain+ detector and is available in standard and custom configurations, with single or multi-lane capabilities.
