PPMA Show 2011 – Ishida Europe, Stand C81

Ishida Europe has launched an entry-level version of its market leading X-ray inspection system, offering companies an affordable solution for maximum quality control in their packing operations.

The Ishida IX-EA-2161 has been designed to inspect products such as wrapped confectionery and small trays and bags, with a powerful X-ray that enables the machine to offer higher detection levels than a standard metal detector, checking products for a much wider range of foreign bodies.

Operating at belt speeds of up to 60 metres per minute, the IX-EA 2161 is able to easily pick up a 0.7mm diameter metal piece, while other contaminants that can be detected include glass, stone, rubber and plastic.

In addition, the Ishida X-ray can be tailored to individual requirements.  For example, once a foreign body is detected, an image of the product piece can be made available, along with relevant statistics.  The IX-EA is also able to concentrate detection on the most relevant or critical parts of a product, so that peripheral areas of a carton or the seal area of a bag can be ‘masked’ during the inspection process.  Pattern masking is also available to exclude known shapes such as clips.

The IX-EA offers easy operation via its simple to use touch screen.  Features such as the sensitivity of the inspection process can be adjusted at the touch of a button while up to 100 product settings allow fast changeovers.  The conveyor belt can be removed for cleaning and replaced without any tools required.

A robust construction offers long-term accurate and reliable operation, with operator and product safety at the highest level.

“The IX-EA gives more companies the opportunity to introduce the benefits of in-line X-ray inspection,” comments Paul Griffin, Marketing Director of Ishida Europe.

“Ensuring product quality is vital in competitive markets, particularly given the penalties that can be imposed for product contamination, the costs involved in a product recall and the damage these can cause to the company’s brand or product image.
Our economy X-ray system therefore provides a cost effective solution for brand protection.”
