Eagle Product Inspection will launch its new Eagle Pack 240 XE at Anuga FoodTec 2012 to be held in Cologne, Germany, March 27-30, 2012 at its exhibit at stand D078 in hall 5.2.

A cost-effective, compact x-ray inspection system for contaminant detection facilitating compliance with international food safety standards and retailer safety guidelines, the Eagle Pack 240 XE is ideal for small- and medium-sized enterprises seeking to export packaged products or expand locally.

The system operates with Eagle’s SimulTask XE inspection software, which provides on-screen self-diagnostics, product imaging and recording to ensure complete traceability throughout the production line and ease of due diligence.

With a compact design and adjustable height, the Eagle Pack 240 XE can be easily deployed into existing production lines without the need for large amounts of added space or additional infrastructure.

Able to detect and reject foreign body contaminants such as metal, glass, stone, bone, plastics and rubber in packaged products, Eagle Pack 240 XE‘s detection sensitivity is uncompromised by packaging type, making it suitable for use with products packed in metalized film, foil, jars, cans and small packages common in the confectionery, bakery, ready meals and dairy sectors.

The Eagle Pack 240 XE is a new addition to Eagle’s portfolio of reliable, versatile and easy-to-use x-ray inspection systems. Other systems in this range have a number of capabilities, including ability to check mass, evaluate compartmentalized fill level and analyze fat content.
