Trend Control

The trend control function improves production efficiency in filling process. The system calculates the product mass mean value and outputs a pulse proportional to the deviation from the reference value. This function can be used for feedback control of the filling machine that uses a pulse motor for products such as powders and liquids as well as other production lines.

X-ray Inspection

X-ray Inspection System is becoming a standard of foreign body inspection method these days. X-ray can detect not only metals but also other contaminants such as stone and plastic. X-ray is hardly affected by metalized film, product temperature, and salt, compared to Metal Detector.

Shape Check

X-ray system can inspect not only foreign substances but also cracks and chips in the contents, and shape defects such as air bubbles remaining inside.

Application examples of Shape Check

Count Check

When the mass of each piece in a package varies per piece: The variation in the mass of each piece can be equivalent to the mass of one piece when adding each variation per piece in a package. In this case, the number of pieces in a package cannot be evaluated by the mass of the entire product. In the case, the piece count can be identified by using x-ray projection images. The virtual weight inspection is ideal for a product placed in the given position in a package such as cupcakes, Chinese steamed dumplings, etc.
