Ishida IX-PD: New Next Generation X-Ray Detection Solution
Key benefits: Next Generation Detection: · Incorporates new sensor and image processing technology that is capable of detecting both low density items (incl. bones in fish fillets) and very small size foreign bodies (such as stainless steel wires) with excellent accuracy Patented detection algorithm: · Combined with Ishida’s proven Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Dual Energy technologies, the IX-PD produces ultra high resolution and clearer images than conventional X-ray systems. Energy efficiency: · This technology enables the X-rays to be directly converted to electrons, rather than through a photo diode, which increases energy efficiency. Best in class detection: · Demonstrated in tests near 100% detection rates for bones in chicken, diced meat and sausages, achieving for bone detection in chicken breast fillets an increase from 40% to 100% compared with conventional X-ray technologies. · Designed for high volume production lines and for densely packed and overlapping food items, which traditionally makes it harder to detect small contaminants. · The IX-PD's ability to recognise with high accuracy the difference between food and foreign body, reduces false detections, enabling companies to maintain stringent quality control procedures without compromising throughput.
