interpack: First inspect, than pack!

We have consistently further developed our X-ray system for inspecting still unpacked product mass. The latest version of the HEUFT eXaminer II XT will be exhibited to the public for the first time at the interpack 2023 exhibition.

A computing power at HEUFT SPECTRUM II level. A sustainably perfected X-ray and image converter technology. More coverage for the gentle detection of foreign objects in still unpacked product mass. And a completely revised mechanical construction for extremely space-saving integration in the smallest of spaces: the latest version of our HEUFT eXaminer II XT  for pipeline inspection now offers even more performance and flexibility!

With further developed generators and full field image converters our pulsed X-ray covers even larger areas than before. The millisecond X-ray flashes penetrate product masses such as sausage meat, jam, yogurt, syrup or even creams and toothpaste in even larger pipe dimensions of up to 150 DN to identify metal particles, glass particles, stones and other high-density foreign bodies even before the actual filling and packaging process.
Even if the transport speed within the pipeline is extremely high or fluctuates, the X-ray technology exclusively available from our own development and production ensures clear detection images without motion blur with minimal radiation.

Smart image processing, full flexibility

Smart filtering, classification and learning processes during real-time image processing with the HEUFT reflexx A.I. help to reliably distinguish genuine risks from product inhomogeneities and other harmless deviations. This ensures that only goods which are really no longer marketable are withdrawn from circulation. For this purpose, a rejection valve is activated directly.

Simply more flexibility during the integration and installation of the compact HEUFT eXaminer II XT is offered by its extremely modular construction which has been completely renewed. The X-ray generators and receivers, the product-carrying tube, the device casing as well as the control terminal with the self-explanatory HEUFT NaVi user guidance system can now be placed in almost any position. In contrast to conventional pipeline inspectors the most varied installation positions can now be realized - right up to wall and ceiling mounting!

Maximum automation, operational and detection reliability

Grade and program changes are carried out fully automatically and without time-consuming recalibration. The HEUFT NaVi supports the user individually and step by step. This also applies to regular self-tests for checking the detection performance in an innovative procedure: Up to four carbon fibre fingers prepared with different test objects are moved directly into the beam path for this purpose so that the detection reliability can be checked under real production conditions and documented without gaps.

The new-generation pipeline inspector, which we will be presenting at interpack in Düsseldorf from May 4 to 10, 2023, is correspondingly reliable. In the tightest of spaces, it can be used to achieve precisely what is becoming increasingly important in the supply chain: the delivery and processing of already pre-inspected bulk goods that are free of foreign bodies. This minimizes the risk of dangerous foreign objects only being found in the finished packaged end product and at the same time effectively protects against pointless waste of packaging materials.
