X-ray inspection system for packaged products


  • X-ray inspection for packaged food or non-food products
  • Detects high density materials like metal, ceramic, stone or plastic
  • Easy operation with autocalibration and clearly arranged functions on 17“ touchscreen
  • XIA software for instant analysis and detection with high accuracy and reliability
  • Quick release conveyor belt for easy cleaning and maintenance




The XD38 is particularly suitable for packaged food or non-food products, for example in plastic packaging, jars, cartons and even metal foil or metal cans. Unwanted foreign objects such as metal, stones, ceramics or plastic with high density in the product are detected.

The hygienic design allows easy cleaning and maintenance of the device – without the need for tools. This makes the XD38 particularly suitable for all companies and industries that have to ensure high hygiene standards (also available with IP66).

XRAY SHARK® XD38 is particularly suitable for smaller, packaged food or non-food products contained in jars, boxes, plastic packaging and even metal foils or metal cans. Undesirable contaminants such as metal, stone, ceramic, glass or plastic particles with high density can be detected in the product.

The large 17”color touch screen and intuitive software make it easy to use. No special training is needed to operate the x-ray device.

Easy cleaning and maintenance:

The hygienic design allows for easy cleaning and maintenance, without any tools. With the conveyor’s quick release, the conveyor belt can be removed in five easy steps for cleaning. The X-ray protection curtains can be removed by just pushing one button. After cleaning the belt, the curtains can be replaced just as easily, and the device is then quickly ready to resume operation.

Real time detection with colored contamination analysis:

CASSEL x-ray inspection systems provide maximum sensitivity in the detection of foreign bodies. Contaminated products are detected live and can be separated. On the touch screen of the X-ray device contamination is highlighted in red.

Masking functions:

The advanced XIA 3 software program omits certain parts of the product from inspection. This is particularly useful for packaged products, where the actual packaging should not be inspected for foreign bodies. The masking prevents unnecessary false rejection of products.

24 hour non-stop operation:

High-quality components and the advanced technology allow non-stop operation, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Reliable German safety standards – TÜV-approved:

The flawless design offers maximum safety and comfort for daily operating. The radiation leakage rate is 1µSv/h respectively 3 µSv/h or less.

Ethernet and USB:

Connect our x-ray inspection system to your network. CASSEL  provides all x-ray machines with USB and Ethernet interfaces as a standard.

Auto storing of inspection data, with time/date stamp:

All data can be stored for quality control. The x-ray machine XRAY SHARK® XD38 has an automatic memory function. The option of storing data only for contaminated products is also available. All data is provided with a time and date stamp. You can easily check this data and analyze it.

Built-in remote maintenance:

If on-site technicians are not available, CASSEL x-ray inspection systems have a built-in remote maintenance function. Our qualified service engineers will help you with any questions, no matter where your x-ray machine is located. That way, expensive travel costs can be saved and quick solutions can be found.
