Optimize your all-round glass inspection

A tiny shard of glass can cause serious injury to a consumer, and the resulting negative publicity combined with the high cost of product recalls can have a devastating impact on business.  Not only do product recalls mean lost revenue and a damaged reputation, but evidence shows that manufacturers’ greatest asset, their brand, may never recover.

The risk of glass-in-glass contamination and its highly damaging effects, combined with increasingly stringent safety regulations worldwide, make it more important than ever for manufacturers to have x-ray systems that offer the most sensitive product inspection. Glass containers are one of the most challenging types of packaging to inspect, mainly because the primary contaminant is glass which is the same material and density as the packaging.

X-ray inspection solutions have been designed to overcome these challenges. Selecting the right x-ray inspection system is fundamental to guaranteeing optimum glass-in-glass detection. However, X-ray inspection equipment can only solve contamination problems as long as each element – from beam angle to reject mechanism – has been chosen to fit the line and the product. For this reason, knowledge of the various formats and their suitability for different types of detection is essential.
