Eriez Introduces E-Z Tec XR-SS Automatic X-Ray Inspection Systems

Press Release:
  Jun 14, 2010 — Erie, Pa. — Eriez® proudly introduces the E-Z Tec® XR-SS (Side Shoot) Automatic X-Ray Inspection System to complement the company’s extensive line of inspection system products. The E-Z Tec XR-SS Series Cabinet Inspection System is ideal for use on high speed canning lines and upright containers that are not glass.

“For canning lines, the E-Z Tec XR-SS exhibits superior performance in simultaneously identifying metal foreign objects and detecting under-filled and misshaped cans,” says Ray Spurgeon, Product Manager—X-Ray Inspection Systems. “For upright, non-glass products, this state-of-the-art inspection system is unsurpassed in detecting foreign objects and confirming fill levels,” he adds.

The E-Z Tec XR-SS features a user friendly interface with 15" touch screen display. The full color display accesses the industry- standard Windows XP interface and displays real-time images and diagnostic data.

Connectors for USB and network interfaces are conveniently located for easy access at the side of the cabinet, enabling interconnection of memory devices, external instruments, etc.
With E-Z Tec XR-SS, no frequent calibration is required. The system automatically analyzes product variations to continuously achieve optimum sensitivity throughout production.

Spurgeon explains, “There is little or no set-up procedure with adaptive software algorithms. Eriez and the Sapphire Alliance, a global group of the most experienced X-Ray Inspection companies, pioneered systems that automatically recalculate parameters as each product is inspected to achieve optimum sensitivity – automatically.”

Eriez now offers Online X-Ray Testing. Customers who want to witness firsthand the effectiveness of X-Ray technology can submit product samples for testing and receive an instantaneous analysis from Eriez. Customers can “virtually" attend the material test in real time with Eriez' interactive online X-Ray testing via a password-protected Web site.
