X-ray Detects Metal Inside Metal Cans
Manufacturers of moist smokeless tobacco face many unique challenges in processing and packaging single cans for distribution. Challenges that could affect customer safety and brand protection, such as:
- Foreign body detection including metal contaminants even when product is packaged inside a can with a metal lid
- Detection of missing lids from single cans
- Product weight check to meet quality standards
- Detection of missing product in empty cans
Moist smokeless tobacco is often packed inside metal cans which makes inspection by metal detectors an unsuitable option. The Eagle™ Pack 240 PRO combined with the SimulTask™ PRO imaging software allows foreign contaminant detection such as metal, glass and stone even through metalized packaging. Additionally, inspecting the canned product with the lid on ensures no further contamination risk down the line. Download the application note for the detailed solution.
