Function

The XD68 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. This makes the XD68 particularly suitable for all companies and industries that have to ensure high hygiene standards (also available with IP66).
