Key features

Sensor Technology

The Ixus™ Bulk scans products in bulk to detect foreign material that can be dangerous to your customer. Metal, glass and small rocks (free flowing and embedded) are detected by absorbing more x-rays than the good product. The Ixus™ Bulk can also divide products into different categories (for example, size and shape). The type of x-ray source depends on the product, type of defect and capacity.

The Ixus™ Bulk is very flexible and easy to integrate into the production line and can be used as a complementary or as a stand-alone sorting machine. Implementing an x-ray sorting machine at the beginning of the line will decrease your incoming defect load significantly and will facilitate further processing. At the furthest end of the line, it will minimize the risk of finding anything unwanted in your final product, just prior to packaging.
