NEW ISHIDA X-RAY OFFERS ENHANCED SENSITIVITY FOR DIFFICULT TO DETECT ITEMS
Ishida Europe has launched its next generation IX-G2 dual energy X-ray inspection system which offers significantly enhanced sensitivities for the detection of low-density and difficult to spot foreign bodies, including bone. The Ishida IX-G2-F incorporates a new line sensor that provides a high-quality X-ray image through an enhanced signal to noise ratio which has increased the ability to detect bone fragments by a factor of four compared with previous X-ray models. This further increases the ability of the machine to identify contaminants, in particular when handling thicker and denser products such as chicken fillets, chicken breasts and a wide range of poultry products where they can often be overlapped or presented with uneven surfaces. The enhanced sensitivity of the machine also greatly reduces the risk of false detections, which helps to maximise throughput and avoids the costs associated with unnecessary waste and the repacking of products.
