X-ray inspection systems for upright products

Sesotec X-ray scanners for upright products are especially suitable for tall and slim packaging shapes (e.g. Tetra Pak) and facilitate high-speed inspection. They detect a variety of contaminants, such as metals, glass, ceramic, stones and PVC, not to mention various product defects. They are extremely user-friendly and automatically adjust to different product heights when products are switched, thereby preventing customer complaints and recalls from the outset.

X-rays screen the upright products transported on a conveyor belt. Our special analysis software uses the signals to create a digital X-ray image, which it examines for contaminants, fill level, trapped air and other defects. Integrated separation systems ensure reliable removal. More information on how Sesotec X-ray scanners work is available here.

The benefits in detail

  • Our X-ray scanners detect contaminants from 0.6 mm in particle size
  • They feature an outstanding design: hygienic, very quickly accessed and possible to service without tools
  • They provide hassle-free installation thanks to a modular design
  • They enable high-speed inspection with up to 600 pieces per minute
  • The X-ray source automatically adjusts to the product’s height
  • They provide excellent radiation protection in line with the German X-ray Regulation (Röntgenverordnung − RöV)
  • Due to their low radiation energy levels for detecting contaminants in food, they can even be used with organic products in accordance with Directive 1999/2/EC
  • They detect contaminants such as metals, glass, ceramics, stones, raw bones, PVC, Teflon, rubber and glass-fiber-reinforced plastics in food
  • They check the fill levels of closed containers
  • They detect lumpy, misshapen or broken products
  • They detect trapped air in containers
  • They detect metal contaminants from non-magnetic stainless steels and non-ferrous metals, even in food packed in aluminum
  • The intuitive user interface provides the user with a swift overview and is extremely easy to operate
  • Thanks to the real-time operating system with flash card…
    • …their full processing power is used exclusively for product inspection
    • …there are no vulnerable hard disks or external drives
    • no UPS is needed to safeguard the system
  • The AuditCheck function actively assists the operator in process monitoring, thereby reducing the effort for manual logging on the line

Transport system

A PE link belt moves the product being inspected evenly through the X-ray beam, which means it is possible to scan products in rows.


X-ray tube

The X-rays are electrically generated in the X-ray tube. They leave the tube through a narrow slit and penetrate the product being inspected as a fan-shaped beam. Depending on the product’s height and density, some of the X-rays are absorbed by the product.


Detector unit

The linear detector line installed next to the conveyor belt converts the radiation that reaches it into an electrical signal from which a digital image is created.


Industry PC

This is where the X-ray image is analyzed and the reject systems are precisely controlled.


Reject system

A pusher moves contaminated products onto a reject table, from where they can be removed manually. We offer systems in different versions.


Guide rails

Guide rails direct the product stably through the inspection tunnel. They can be individually adjusted to each product.
