X-Ray Inspection

Sesotec (formerly S+S) is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and developers of inspection, separation and sorting systems. Sesotec systems are used in process, packaging, and production lines throughout industry and in the specialized preparation of materials for recycling. Sesotec have been designing and manufacturing quality inspection systems since 1976, and continue to undertake all design and manufacturing at their German headquarters in Schönberg.
The Sesotec RAYCON X-ray systems are fully integrated systems designed for use in wet or dry applications and inspect packaged food and other products for contaminants or unwanted defects. They feature accurate in-line detection of magnetic or non-magnetic metals, glass, ceramics, stone, bone, PVC, rubber, etc., even in metallic or metal-coated packaging such as foil. The X-ray inspection software is also optimized to identify product defects such as broken, deformed or missing product with minimal operator training.

  • Inspect packed product at up to 600 packs per minute, with multi-lane and multi-product capability.
  • Highly sensitive in-line detection of metallic and non-metallic food contaminants.
  • Available with multi-frequency technology.
  • Simultaneous inspection of up to 4 product lines running in parallel.
  • Weighing of complete or part products.
  • Compact, light-weight, modular design, which is easy to both clean and maintain.
  • Easy to use with the simple product auto-learn function, multi-product memory for instant product recall.
  • Wide range of conveyor widths and product heights to suit all applications.
  • Reject systems with failsafe monitoring devices such as reject confirmation, bin full, status monitoring and line check sensing.

Key Benefits

The RAYCON Bulk X-ray product sorting system detects contaminants at high line speeds that due to their density, chemical composition, or mechanical dimensions absorb X-radiation to a greater degree than the surrounding bulk product. For example, metal, glass, stone, calcified bone and high density plastic in bulk food material. It features precision sorting software that identifies the contaminant with pinpoint accuracy and ensures that there is always minimal product wastage when the reject operates.

  • Highly sensitive in-line detection and separation of metallic and non-metallic food contaminants,
  • Compact, modular design conveyor system, easy to clean and maintain.
  • Low energy sealed X-ray source, maintenance free.
  • High precision reject system, either 20 multi-flap or 80 air jet nozzles to suit the application, minimal product wastage.
  • High X-ray scanning rate maximizes throughput.
  • Integral vibratory feed chute.
  • Detects contaminants that are missed by optical sorters.
