As you’re planning your trip to Pack Expo 2019 in Las Vegas, plan ahead to stop by Eagle’s exhibit to see the dynamic range of x-ray inspection capabilities and learn how the latest equipment and software is designed for specific products and manufacturing environments. Today’s x-ray machines are also customizable for your needs and the demands of your operation, as Eagle’s team of experts can demonstrate.
It isn’t just what and how you make products in your facility – it’s where. The differences between manufacturing environments – some subtle, some significant — underscore the reason why a “one size fits all” approach to equipment on the line doesn’t work.
That’s true for food inspection equipment, tools designed to improve food safety, food quality control and food traceability for a variety of foods and beverages at various points in the production process. An x-ray machine on the line in a red meat processing facility looks and functions differently than one in a cereal plant or a ready-meal operations.
There are similarities in the technologies and software that drive the inspection, but the user can know that the inspection system in their setting was designed for their setting. Examples of the range of systems that perform x-ray food inspection will be on display at this PACK Expo Las Vegas 2019, Sept. 23-25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. During this show that attracts attendees from a broad spectrum of industries with unique manufacturing environments, Eagle will spotlight its solutions that help companies improve safety, quality and traceability while simultaneously improving efficiencies.
For example, the Eagle Pack 240 HC is a high-performance x-ray machine used in harsh, heavy-washdown environments such as meat, poultry, dairy and other food sites where daily sanitization of equipment is mandatory. The system can detect foreign bodies several package types, such as chubs, over-wrapped trays, pouches, cartons, tubs, cups and plastic containers.
Meanwhile, those who manufacture items in glass or tall products are constantly vigilant about glass contaminants and face other challenges unique to their settings. The Eagle Tall PRO XS is a solution for those environments, providing 100% inspection for hard-to-find contaminants in tall, rigid containers including glass, metal and ceramic containers and plastic containers, cartons/boxes and pouches. The system can run at line rates in excess of 1000 PPM and is multi-functional in its ability to simultaneously scan for foreign bodies and perform inline product integrity checks such as fill level and cap or lid detection for bottles.
For those of you traveling to Pack Expo, stop by and see these latest technologies on display at Booth C-1506 in Central Hall. While there, talk to our technical experts about your needs and how you can best improve safety, conduct inline quality checks and adhere to the latest compliance standards. Put their decades of experience around the world, covering all kinds of manufacturing operations and environments, to work for you and your facility’s needs.
