X-ray system XRAY SHARK-XS GIG, easy handling


The XS GIG x-ray system is specially designed for the complicated detection of glass particles in glass or plastic containers. It also detects unwanted foreign objects such as metal, stones, ceramics or plastic with high density in the product. The XS37 devices use a scanning hight up to 370 mm with a straight product tunnel for conveyor speed up to 1 m/s.

The hygienic design with protection type IP66 for the product tunnel makes the XS GIG products particularly suitable for all companies and industries that have to ensure high hygiene standards.
