X-ray Inspection Systems for Nutraceuticals: Powdered Fiber Supplements

The Challenge

Processing and packaging safe and high quality nutraceuticals such as powdered fiber supplements is a tall order and manufacturing facilities must face daily hurdles to ensure safe product meets end consumers:

  • Detecting hazardous foreign bodies
  • Identifying missing lids for package integrity
  • Verifying proper fill level to prevent product giveaway
  • Accurate weight check with consistent, repeatable results

The Solution

The Eagle™ Tall PRO XS x-ray inspection system is ideal for nutraceutical manufacturers with limited floor space as it easily fits over an existing conveyor line. The x-ray machine is powered by SimulTask™ PRO advanced imaging software, which simultaneously detects metal, glass and stone contaminants in upright plastic containers. It further performs multiple quality control checks such as package integrity, weight verification and fill level. All this is done at high line speeds with accuracy and precision.
