Integrity check


HEUFT eXaminer XB

Simply detecting more:  top-down inspection with pulsed X-ray technology.

Whether unpackaged or in flow packs, thermoform packaging, pouches or composite packages:  the HEUFT eXaminer XB end of line inspector monitors the safety and quality of solid food in the single-lane transport section continuously.  The top-down X-ray strobe checks up to 1,000 products per minute, such as bars of chocolate, chocolates, cheese or sliced bread, for foreign objects, completeness and integrity.



Foreign object detection

Maximising detection reliability:  top-down inspection with unique pulsed X-ray technology.

Glass, metal and stones:  foreign objects such as these have as little place in flow packs, thermoform packaging, pouches and composite packages as in solid products or food jars.  The HEUFT eXaminer XB finds them!


Larger sized products can be examined continuously and with high precision due to the large, sensitive detection surface.  Even the border areas of the extremely clear X-ray images remain free of distortions and aberrations.  The low radiation level is unequalled.  It is emitted as X-ray flashes which only last a thousandth of a second.  In addition this prevents motion blurs at line speeds of up to 1,200 products per minute and therefore ensures maximum detection accuracy.


The inspection of product and packaging

Simply detecting more:  the detection of damaged and incomplete products.

Defective, incomplete products and missing packaging components:  the HEUFT eXaminer XB also identifies such faults using pulsed X-ray technology with an unprecedented precision.  The HEUFT reflexx real-time image processing system clearly differentiates between real faults and harmless product inhomogeneities and packaging structures in the course of this.


This is also achieved reliably in the case of oversized products due to the extended sensitive detection surface.  In contrast to metal detectors neither the product's own signal nor metal packaging components can impair the detection reliability.  A static inspection is also possible because there is no permanent beam emitted but merely X-ray flashes only lasting a millisecond.  The product can also be precisely examined when the conveyor is not moving e.g. for internal quality assurance purposes.


Fault rejection

Preventing recalls:  the reliable rejection of faulty containers.

Fast, careful and accurate:  highest precision when detecting faults is only effective if the products in question are also removed afterwards.  The single-segment and multi-segment rejection systems of the HEUFT rejector series deal with this both precisely and carefully.

Product monitoring and self-tests

Playing it safe:  exact product tracking and regular self-tests.

Always knowing the current location of a particular product:  each one is tracked precisely for this.  This ensures that none remain uninspected.


The integrated reject verification checks that each product identified as faulty is really removed.  Standard test programs guarantee a regular examination of the detection performance.  Network-based continuous documenting and long-term archiving of the results.




Controlling centrally:  one platform for all requirements.

Precise, network-compatible and cross-system:  the HEUFT SPECTRUM TX forms the basis for different technologies, modules and functions.  The devices of the generation of the same name can be exactly adapted to individual requirements on site and retrofitted at any time due to this universal platform.


A cross-system component equality of 70 per cent ensures a high availability of spare parts.  The central HEUFT SPECTRUM TX control unit creates a high level of precision during continuous product tracking and quality assurance due to its multiprocessing capability.  A future-proof network connection ensures reliable remote maintenance and production data acquisition for optimum efficiency and productivity.  In-house developed hardware and software and its own operating system ensure computing power and offer no opportunity for viruses or malware.



Operating HEUFT systems reliably:  graphical user interface with practical tools.

Clear, helpful and specific:  the HEUFT PILOT graphical user interface convinces due to an easy to understand, multilingual menu structure with extensive auxiliary tools.  Therefore the reliable operation of the HEUFT SPECTRUM TX systems is not difficult.


Important information and clear error messages with service notes provide the respective user with specific support.  This avoids incorrect adjustments and shortens standstills e.g. during brand changes.  Password protected operator levels adapted to the respective area of responsibility also contribute to this.  Also integrated:  a complete online user manual and a tool for the uncomplicated identification and direct ordering of spare parts.



HEUFT reflexx

Combining photographs and reliably detecting objects:  image processing in real time.

Fast, powerful and exact:  combining several camera and X-ray images with each other and specifically detecting various objects.  The HEUFT reflexx carries out all this in real time.


The in-house developed hardware and software provides high computing capacity and is exactly tailored to the requirements of the in-line quality inspection.  It generates high-resolution, noiseless detection pictures and analyses them precisely.  Integrated filter technologies clearly differentiate between supposed and actual faults.  This reduces the false rejection rate sustainably.


Network technologies

Networking everything:  online connection for increased efficiency and quality.

Information transmission in real time, production data acquisition, line analysis and remote maintenance:  networking is the answer!


HEUFT systems have future-proof network interfaces (Gigabit Ethernet and TCP / IP) for an online connection via the Internet and the database interface (SQL / DDE) for top line efficiency and an optimum quality management with considerably faster and easier workflows.  Therefore production data, shift records, productivity faults and HACCP limit value analyses are available network-wide.  The result:  early identification of quality and efficiency problems.  The firewall protected direct connection to the HEUFT TeleService makes competent remote maintenance possible all around the clock.
