The METTLER TOLEDO X34 X-ray inspection system can identify very small contaminants in a quicker and more reliable manner. The system comes with advanced software that enables automated product set-up, dramatically decreasing the chance of human error and greatly reducing the number of false rejects.

The X-34 is a single lane X-ray system designed for the inspection of a wide range of small and medium-sized packaged products. One of its key features is a 100W ‘Optimum Power’ generator, which automatically maximizes detection sensitivity. This is complemented by an advanced 0.4mm detector for the accurate detection of very small contaminants. These technologies ensure that power and contrast levels are optimized for every product, resulting in enhanced detection performance.

This X-ray system comes with advanced ContamPlus inspection software which further enhances detection capabilities, helping food manufacturers achieve a zero False Reject Rate (FRR). Subsequently, Total Cost of Ownership is reduced and Overall Equipment Effectiveness scores are increased.

The X-34 can be equipped with the ProdX advanced data management tool, which maximizes production efficiency and quality control. The ProdX software can store images of foreign body contamination, which can be viewed remotely. The system features a highly-responsive capacitive touchscreen, allowing users to increase the viewing angle of stored images while maintaining image consistency.

The system has excellent ingress protection, with an IP65 rating as standard and IP69 available through upgrade. Cooling is enabled through an air conditioner, which allows the system to operate in high ambient temperature environments.

The X34 offers a combination of technologies which enable producers to detect smaller contaminants reliably at high-throughputs, ensuring product safety and delivering brand protection.
