Swiss confectionery firm F Hunziker has installed Ishida’s IX-EA-2161 X-ray inspection system to enable quality control in the packing of pastilles and powdered drinks into bags at its factory.

Typical production anomalies and contaminants that the Ishida X-ray system has to monitor include an over-large sugar crystal or product lump in the powdered drinks and occasional small fragments of paper or plastic, which could enter the pastilles or drinks via the sugar supply.

The ability of the IX-EA to pick up tiny amounts of metal, glass, stone and rubber adds an extra level of product safety.

Inspection settings are automatically optimised by simply passing product through the machine.

Up to 100 product presets are available and the operator can change from one to another without interrupting the existing production run.

The system uses the familiar Microsoft Windows platform via a touch-screen monitor.

The use of a graphic outline makes it easy to see why a pack is being rejected.

Triple lead-filled plastic curtains ensure that no measurable amount of radiation can escape from the machine.

If the access door is opened or a hand is inserted into the interior, the system shuts down automatically.
