Our X-ray systems for packaged products are specifically designed for end-of-line quality control in the food industry. These X-ray food inspection systems combine highly efficient contaminant detection with the greatest ease of operation and a hygienic design, complying with all key food safety standards. Our X-ray inspection machines are especially well-suited for meat and other processed food products, as they not only detect metals, but also many other contaminants, including glass, ceramic, stones, bone fragments and PVC, not to mention a variety of product defects. All this combines to offer precise end-of-line inspection paired with reliable protection against customer complaints and recalls.
Packaged food products travel through the X-ray machine on a conveyor belt. By reading the X-ray signals, our special analysis software creates a digital image of the product which it examines for contaminants and a variety of product defects, such as air bubbles, too much or too little weight, and breakage. Integrated separation systems then ensure reliable removal of defective or contaminated products. More informationen on X-ray inspection of packaged food products and the Sesotec X-ray inspection machines is available here.
Food products travel through the inspection machine on a flat conveyor belt. This way, the product passes evenly through the X-ray beam, making it possible to scan the product in rows.
X-rays are electrically generated in the X-ray tube and are emitted through a narrow slit. Once emitted, they travel through the product from bottom to top as a fan-shaped beam. Depending on the product’s height and density, some of the X-rays are absorbed by the product.
Attenuated X-ray signals reach the linear detector unit installed above the conveyor belt. These signals are then converted into a digital image of the food product.

Lecture by Sesotec X-ray Product Manager Uli Hurzlmeier concerning the "Food Safety" IFFA focus.
With our booklet
about X-ray inspection of food products we give you an overview of x-ray
inspection in general, important food standards and Sesotec's
e-book we show you, amongst others, what challenges the development of the
world's population and especially food safety pose for manufacturers and
processors and how they can still be mastered.
The „Alte Gewürzamt“ produces 120 tons spices and spice mixtures per year on 4.000 square meters. The HACCP analysis revealed an increased risk of contamination with metal, stones and glass. An inspection at the outgoing goods was therefore required to meet the quality standards.
The Backwelt Pilz produces pre-baked and pre-cooked deep-frozen baked goods, for the food retail trade, petrol station shops and system gastronomy. In order to ensure that bread and rolls are absolutely free of foreign bodies, the Backwelt Pilz decided, in addition to the existing metal detectors, also to install RAYCON D+ X-ray inspection equipment for packaged products.
Founded in 1890, the Josef Manner & Comp. AG is the number one specialist for wafers, dragées,
and marshmallow products
As a leading
manufacturer of product
inspection technology, Sesotec supplied Manner with three RAYCON x-ray systems to help them renew their IFS certification in 2019. The solution was a success:
their IFS certificate was renewed and both production
sites continue to operate at the highest level of accreditation.
