At the upcoming PACK EXPO International 2018 (Oct. 14-17 at McCormick Place in Chicago), Eagle Product Inspection will introduce the next-generation EPX100 for the inspection of packaged goods. During the event, Eagle will demonstrate its latest X-ray system and spotlight other technologies that provide superior contaminant detection and product quality checks.
Unveiled this year, the EPX100 improves product safety and compliance, and allows manufacturers to streamline their systems for greater consistency and reliability. The EPX100 is suitable for a broad range of product applications across the bakery, confectionery, produce, ready meal, snack food, and personal care industries. It provides superior contaminant detection, finding and automatically rejecting a host of foreign materials, including glass shards, metal fragments, mineral stone, some plastic and rubber compound and calcified bones. The system inspects products in cartons, boxes, plastic containers and pouches, among other formats.
The new EPX100 machine was created for ease of use and low maintenance. Users can access all regular or daily functions from the operator side of the machine. The low-energy X-ray environment doesn’t require extra or extensive radiation shielding and helps manufacturers maximize energy use and cost. The accompanying SimulTask 5 operating system , Eagle’s latest image processing and inspection control software, provides greater visibility with an intuitive interface.
In addition to the EPX100, Eagle will demonstrate other advanced inspection systems at PACK EXPO International, including the Eagle Tall PRO XS, which provides 100 percent inspection for hard-to-find contaminants in cans, bottles and jars, and the Eagle FA3/M, a multi-application X-ray system that performs inline fat measurement and contaminant detection for meat products.
