X-Ray Technology for the Inspection of Packed Products

Sesotec is one of the world's leading manufacturers of machines and systems for contaminant detection and product sorting. At this year's interpack 2017 the RAYCON D product inspection system is one of the trade fair highlights presented by Sesotec GmbH at stand A90 in hall 13. This focus reflects the current market development: Manufacturers in the packing industry increasingly rely on X-ray technology to professionally meet growing consumer expectations and increasing statutory requirements relating to product safety.


Sesotec's RAYCON D product inspection system primarily is used for the final inspection of packed products and allows high-precision inline detection of a large variety of contaminants such as magnetic and non-magnetic metals, glass, ceramics, stones, raw bones, and several types of plastics. RAYCON D combines proven Sesotec X-ray technology with hygienic design and ease of operation. With respect to hygienic design, the conveyor belt in the RAYCON D system can be replaced within two minutes by only one operator. The modular technology platform of the RAYCON D allows universal applications that go beyond standard requirements, e.g.  high-resolution, high-speed or high-density inspection.

Entry-level X-ray model

For customers who are interested in easy-to-use and low-cost entry-level equipment for X-ray inspection, Sesotec presents the new RAYCON EX1 model. This system is especially suited for the "end of line" inspection of packed products with maximally 200 millimetres width and 120 millimetres height.


With its minimal installation length of only 800 millimetres and Ethernet connection the RAYCON EX1 system can be easily integrated in existing packing lines.


Due to "low-energy" X-ray technology the system lastingly contributes to efficient and eco-friendly operation and at the same time provides high detection accuracy for contaminations such as stainless steel, glass, or stones starting from a size of 0.6 millimetres. The system features easy integration, operation, maintenance, and cleaning.


Sesotec product inspection systems are "ready for Industry 4.0" and can be networked with other plant components, which increases the total efficiency, quality and flexibility of production.
