C5 Series X-Ray Systems

The C5 Series machines are intended for inspection of glass jar, metal can, and other stand-up packages. These systems use a side view of the product.

The C5 X-Ray System is specifically designed for the rapid automatic inspection of Jar, bottle, and other tall product. The unique geometry enables unparalleled detection capability. This inspection performance is unmatched even with much more expensive multi-view systems.

  • Small footprint does not demand much floor space and replaces both metal detector and fill level detection functions.
  • HyperSwitch Image Processing Platform for mulitfunctional capability.
  • Conveyor and processing speeds up to 200 FPM or 1000 packages/minute.
  • So simple to operatewith the 12" LCD touch-screen
  • NEMA-4 / IP65 with closed system cooling configurations
  • 100% stainless-steel construction

 

C4 Series X-Ray Systems

The C4 Series machines are intended for inspection of non-packaged food, and other hygiene sensitive applications. These systems use a vertical view of the product.

Concept-4 is optimized for the meat and poultry environment fully compliant with IP69K wash-down, and AMI, USDA, NFS-3A hygiene requirements.  Construction is 100% lead free therefore eliminating any hazardous material consideration.

  • IP69K Wash-down Compliant No compromise for deployment in meat and poultry processing environments
  • AMI, USDA, NFS-3A Compliant Inherently clean by design. Everything on or around the conveyor system is completely sealed and offer no place for bacteria
  • Tooless break-down for cleaning The a dual sealed FDA compliant belt that can be quickly removed with no tools on a daily basis.
  • Condensation Prevention High pressure and temperature extremes are handled by external water management and a dry air purge system to prevent internal condensation
  • Small footprint does not demand much floor space and replaces both metal detector and checkweigher functions.
  • HyperSwitch Image Processing Platform for mulitfunctional capability.
  • Conveyor and processing speeds up to 200 FPM or 600 packages/minute.
  • Integrated air-blast, add-on drop or push-arm rejecter mechanism
  • 100% stainless-steel construction including conveyor curtains

 

C3 Series X-Ray Systems

The C3 Series machines are intended for inspection of packaged products. These systems use a vertical view of the product.

Concept-3 is optimized for the low intensity "soft-X-ray" energy range. When coupled with it's unique high dynamic range detection system, unparalleled image discrimination is achieved. Construction is 100% lead free therefore eliminating any hazardous material consideration.

System highlights

  • HyperSwitch software allows mixed product and multilane inspeciton.
  • HyperSwitch Bene software automates setup for contaminant and weight inspection.
  • Random product spacing and orientation.
  • Conveyor and processing speeds up to 200 FPM or 600 packages/minute.
  • Full square tunnel aperture coverage with no missed product corners.
  • USB memory stick for spreadsheet formatted reports and software upgrades.
  • Ethernet interface for Internet Live support, software maintenance, and diagnostics.
  • NEMA-4 / IP65 with closed system A/C cooling
  • Conveyor belt is FDA approved and can be easily removed for cleaning with no tools
  • Integrated air-blast, add-on drop or push-arm rejecter mechanism
  • Small fottprint in 100% stainless-steel construction
  • Infrared touch screen for full pressure cleaning

 

 

Hyper-Switch Bene
Hyper-Switch dramatically improves the state-of-the-art of x-ray inspection machines by utilizing neural network technology. This technology automatically learns what normal product should look like under the light of x-ray energy and detect undesired contamination such as stainless steel, glass, and stone. It also simultaneously inspects each product for under fill or weight. Bene uses neural network technology to quickly determine what to expect.

Contaminant and weighing capabilities no longer require trained personal to setup and adjust. Bene simply learns what is normal by observation of "known good" examples. Placing the burden of setup and adjustment completely under the control of software enables unparalleled computing power to bear on the inspection task.

This system can detect product defects in

  • Shape defects in 3 dimensions.
  • Weight either whole product, or selected product within the container.
  • Absence or excess product such as manual or component.
  • Packaging defects such as open flap, missing spacer.
  • Object position such as missed drilled hole or bearing in position.
  • Missing item such as product instructions, assembly parts.
  • Count the proper number itmes within a package.

Remote Portal is an add-on module that resides between the C3 X-ray inspection machine and your internet enabled factory LAN to give a web browser view of the inspection throughput statistics, archive images, as well as remote service and upgrade capability.

Novus X-Ray's C3 machines inherently support real-time traceability of you product inspection results. The Remote Portal module enhances this capability by constantly synchronizing with the C3 machine, recording the results and associated images to a non-volatile storage device. It parses all throughput statistics to create an easy to use and understandable database using the all-familiar hypertext web interface.

Remote Portal also provides a very effective way for Novus X-Ray support engineers to help you with your quality problems, remotely and in real-time. A support engineer can retrieve your image archive and/or live images, make the appropriate changes, and upload the changes even while your machine is still inspecting product. This capability is commonly call Hot Patching ... no need to stop the production process to enhance, retune, or repair the inspection processor resulting in zero down time!
