Nutrichem products demand the highest quality standards at every stage in the production process. High-performance, state-of-the-
In the search for the optimum technological solution for the inspection of products in aluminum foil packaging, Nutrichem decided to install two RAYCON product inspection systems from S+S, with the ability to detect contaminants and other quality defects.
RAYCON product inspection systems utilize X-ray technology, used for final inspection of packaged products. Aluminum packaging, metal coated films, misaligned or misplaced products, even two parallel product lines simultaneously are no problem for S+S X-ray scanners.
RAYCON guarantees optimal image processing at a very high throughput rate of up to 600 products per minute. Operating with low 50 KeV X-ray power, RAYCON is certified for food and food ingredients in compliance with EC directive 1999/2/EC, requireing no special installation provisions.
Peter Jonigkeit-Burke, Nutrichem Diät+Pharma GmbH, is very satisfied with the X-ray scanners from S+S: "The reliability of deliveries to customers is of paramount importance to us, we constantly seek to exceed requirements of our quality management systems, and increase productivity. Contaminant detection and removal has been an important subject at Nutrichem for a long time, and presently X-ray systems offer the best technology to meet our demands. What we want is a final inspection of aluminum packed products, because this eliminates any possibility of contamination at a later stage. It is of great importance to us that S+S provides prompt service and back up whenever required. With S+S X-ray scanners, everything simply fits perfectly."
