Xpert Sideshoot X-Ray Inspection System 

  • Designed for tall-profile package inspection such as metal cans, plastic bottle x-ray, cartons and standup pouches.
  • Large horizontal beam provides improved sensitivity and more accurate results when scanning vertically-oriented containers.
  • Specific software algorithms developed for tall profile packages look for contaminants in problem areas such as package edges, bottom center and top. 
  • Performs product verification inspections to estimate fill level or determine whether a package is dented or has a missing closure.  
  • Engineered for high-speed can, bottle, carton and pouch lines of up to 500 packages per minute. 
  • Easy to install and use — compact length fits into tight production spaces, height easily adjusts to match existing conveyor. 
  • Available in straight or curtainless chicane line configurations.
  • Optional conveyors for turnkey configurations.
