Remote control and maintenance of x-ray system XRAY SHARK


The XRAY SHARK® XD47 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.

All devices are individually manufactured and can therefore be perfectly adapted to your existing production line and individual product requirements. XRAY SHARK® XD47-H2-E2-MEAT is already optimally adapted to the inspection of meat in standardised E2 crates as standard.

CASSEL XRAY SHARK XD with closed product tunnel


Unwanted foreign bodies in food, medicines or other non-food products are a major problem. Many foreign objects such as plastic, ceramics or glass cannot be detected with a metal detector. CASSEL x-ray inspection systems offer the ideal solution for the protection of your products.

The XRAY SHARK® XD47 is already one of our larger devices and is particularly suitable for packaged food or non-food products with larger dimensions or in containers.

The device detects foreign objects such as metal, stone, ceramics, glass or plastic with high density in products in plastic packaging, jars, cartons and even metal foil or metal cans.

User-friendly operation:

The XRAY SHARK® XD47 x-ray units have a large 17″ colour touch screen and intuitive software that is easy to use. No special training is required to operate the x-ray unit.

Hygienic design:

The hygienic design of the XRAY SHARK® XD47 makes cleaning and maintenance easy. All components are clearly arranged and can be disassembled and reassembled for cleaning. The large maintenance doors allow product jams to be removed quickly. This minimizes downtime for your production line.

Real-time detection with coloured contamination analysis:

CASSEL x-ray inspection systems enable maximum sensitivity in foreign object detection. Contaminated products are detected in real time and can be sorted out. The contamination is highlighted in colour on the touch screen of the x-ray unit.

Masking functions:

The sophisticated XIA 3 software allows to mask certain parts of the product. This is particularly useful for packaged products where the actual packaging should not be examined as a foreign object. The masking function prevents products from being ejected unnecessarily.

24 hours non-stop operation:

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

Reliable German safety standard – TÜV approved:

The immaculate design offers the quality-conscious manufacturer the highest level of safety and comfort for daily operation. The radiation leakage amounts to 3 µSv/h or less and can be TÜV -approved.

Ethernet and USB:

Connect our x-ray systems to your network. CASSEL x-ray systems are equipped with USB and Ethernet interfaces as standard.

Automatic storage of inspection data with time / date stamp:

All XRAY SHARK® units have an automatic storage function. Data can be stored for all inspected products or only for contaminated products. All data are provided with a time and date stamp. So you can easily check and evaluate these data.

Built-in remote control and maintenance:

All CASSEL x-ray systems can be controlled or maintained from a PC. This allows you to monitor the inspection performance from the office. If it is necessary for an expert to check and adjust the unit settings, this can also be easily done online. Call us and our qualified technicians will help you with any questions you may have, no matter where your x-ray unit is located. This will save you expensive travel expenses and help you find quick solutions.
