Wipotec-OCS to introduce compact x-ray scanner at IPPE 2020
Wipotec-OCS, a manufacturer and supplier of precision in-motion weighing and x-ray scanning equipment, will introduce a new compact member of its SC family of x-ray inspection scanners at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), January 28-30 in Atlanta, US. At Booth B4201, the company will debut its SC-2000 “Mini“ X-Ray Scanner, which can inspect up to 400 products per minute with few false rejects.
The SC-2000 Mini is just 700mm in width, offering an high process speed to footprint ratio. Highly modular for a comprehensive range of potential inspection setups, the machine features integrated conveyor technology with discharge units, and a switch cabinet can be configured separately from the measuring head. The SC-2000 Mini’s external control cabinet affords easy integration into existing production lines.
Also at IPPE, Wipotec-OCS will premiere an enhanced washdown system for its SC-WD-6000-B X-Ray Scanner. The latest bulk flow model meets protection class IP69K, making it suitable for wet environments and other challenging cleaning conditions. The module’s C-shaped product space, beveled surfaces and stainless steel housing fulfill even the most stringent hygiene requirements.
Capable of inspecting many tons of bulk meat per hour and offering unsurpassed foreign body detection sensitivity, the SC-WD-6000-B X-Ray Scanner is equipped with an HD-TDI camera detector. In conjunction with the metal-ceramic tube, it generates extremely high-resolution x-ray images for the unit’s custom-designed image processing software. The scanner’s flexible ejection options ensure accurate separation of bad product while maximising good product throughput.
Finally, Wipotec-OCS also will showcase its HC-M-WD-MDi Checkweigher with an integrated metal detector. Capable of handling up to 250 products per minute, the machine utilises Wipotec’s precision Electro-Magnetic Force Restoration (EMFR) technology, which enables extremely short settling times to deliver fast, accurate and repeatable weighing results. An intuitive software interface offers ease of operation, and the model meets all food processing industry requirements including IFS-compliant product control and other HACCP or LMHV/FDA hygiene regulations.
“Meat and poultry processors understandably need inspection solutions that are both exceptionally precise and extraordinarily efficient,” said Jim Renehan, senior marketing manager for Wipotec-OCS. “Our scanners and checkweighers have become mainstays at meat and poultry processing plants around the world thanks to their accuracy, repeatability and reliability. We look forward to showcasing our latest lineup of solutions at IPPE 2020 in Atlanta.”
