An array of X-ray, metal detector and checkweigher solutions for food, pharmaceutical and consumer product quality and safety from Thermo Fisher Scientific will be shown at Interpack 2017.
Making its debut at the show is the Thermo Scientific NextGuard Pro—the latest model in the Thermo Scientific NextGuard X-ray inspection platform. In addition, the Thermo Scientific Versa Flex checkweigher will be on display for the first time in Europe.
The NextGuard Pro is engineered to handle heavier product weights of up to 50 kg/110 lb. The long, rugged, washdown conveyor is completely removable to facilitate maintenance and repair. To meet the needs of processors in countries with more stringent X-ray radiation regulations, additional shielding options are available. The NextGuard technology platform, including the C330 conveyor and C500 wider-aperture models, is already used in more than 30 countries.
The Thermo Scientific Versa Flex (fixed height) and Versa Flex GP (height-adjustable cantilever) checkweighers are suited for dry applications and designed to enable users to control accuracy and reliability, helping to decrease product giveaway, maintenance and total cost of ownership.
Also on display will be the Thermo Scientific Xpert S400 X-ray inspection system. The unit was developed for tall-profile package inspection with a flexible, easy-to-use and cost-effective horizontal beam X-ray system. It’s designed to detect metal, glass, dense plastics and other foreign objects in vertically oriented containers such as metal cans, plastic bottles, cartons and standup pouches.
Rounding out the company’s Interpack offerings are the:
- Thermo Scientific APEX 500 metal detector designed to reduce product effect and costly waste caused by false rejects. It offers excellent sensitivity and a multi-coil design for magnetic flux consistency.
- Thermo Scientific Global VersaWeigh combination checkweigher and metal detector,for space-savings.
- Thermo Scientific Versa RxV marking and verification pharmaceutical checkweigher for track-and-trace applications.
- Thermo Scientific Versa 8120 chain checkweigher for high-speed weighing, control and reject functions for cartons, cans, bottles and pouches.
