28 February, 2012 – At Anuga FoodTec 2012, Eagle Product Inspection will launch the Eagle Pack 240 XE, a cost-effective, compact x-ray inspection system for contaminant detection. Facilitating compliance with international food safety standards and retailer safety guidelines, the system is ideal for small and medium-sized enterprises seeking to export packaged products or expand locally. The Eagle Pack 240 XE operates with Eagle’s SimulTask™ XE inspection software, which provides on-screen self-diagnostics, product imaging and recording to ensure complete traceability throughout the production line and ease of due diligence. The system will be showcased at Anuga FoodTec, Cologne, Germany, 27-30 March 2012, on stand D078 in hall 5.2.
With a compact design and adjustable height, the Eagle Pack 240 XE is easily deployed into existing production lines, often directly replacing existing metal detection systems, without the need for large amounts of added space or additional infrastructure. The new x-ray inspection system is able to detect and reject foreign body contaminants such as metal, glass, stone, bone, plastics and rubber in packaged products. The machine’s detection sensitivity is uncompromised by packaging type, making it suitable for use with products packed in metalized film, foil, jars, cans and small packages common in the confectionery, bakery, ready meals and dairy sectors.
The Eagle Pack 240 XE is a new addition to Eagle’s portfolio of reliable, versatile and easy-to-use x-ray inspection systems. Other systems in this range have a number of capabilities, including ability to check mass, evaluate compartmentalized fill level and analyze fat content.
