Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed, the worldwide leader of in-line checkweighing, announces the launch of the new XS3 AdvanChek X-ray CombiWeigher, which combines world-leading checkweighing and X-ray inspection technologies in one revolutionary and unique, space-saving system.
The X-ray CombiWeigher represents a breakthrough in modern product inspection offering exceptionally high quality standards to meet the needs of the food processing and pharmaceutical industries. A complete product inspection combination system, it not only performs highly accurate over and underweight checkweighing, but simultaneously inspects products for physical contaminants such as glass, metal, stone, bone and high-density plastics.
The XS3 AdvanChek CombiWeigher is the first X-ray quality-control system that includes a true checkweigher with EMFR weigh cell technology for accurate dynamic weighing which fulfills all local Weights and Measures regulations (MID certified). Innovative and highly versatile, the CombiWeigher is built to the highest safety standards in the industry and is compliant with IRR 1999. With its HACCP-compliant stainless steel (V2A) design and sealing up to IP65, the system meets strict hygiene standards and is ideal for harsh environments.
The effective combination of the two technologies in one system save time and money in the production processes. The user-friendly 15-inch color touch screen interface can be configured for a wide range of languages and offers multi-level passwords and user profiles. This single interface is the central point for set up and article management for both technologies, helping reduce possible operator errors, avoid repetition and ensure faster production changeover thus minimizing downtime.
The XS3 AdvanChek X-ray CombiWeigher has a compact footprint so valuable production space can be saved while the system can easily be integrated into existing production lines. Time and costs associated with line integration, operator training and documentation are vastly reduced by using one compact system instead of two separate units.
A lower cost of ownership is realized as the system uses less moving parts, rollers and motors for reduced maintenance needs. The unique design of the X-ray tank assembly ensures the system is efficiently cooled by the environment so that an external air conditioner is unnecessary.
A wide variety of options including statistics, feedback control, and integration with the Mettler Toledo SQC/SPC programs make this product inspection system a driving force in maximizing profits and eliminating process waste.
