    Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. offers the NextGuard X-ray detection system, designed to enable food processors to meet the global demand for more thorough inspection for product contamination. The product has multiple contaminant detection algorithms to increase detection probability; the ability to modify, test and change detection parameters on the fly; and a QA check mode, automating operator audits and record keeping. The system is also designed to inspect packaged products for flaws such as missing pieces or components, using customizable vision software.

    The platform's algorithms target the detection of less dense contaminants such as glass or rocks in complex, textured products such as nuts or tea bag boxes. Optional mass estimation software is designed to utilize the density information in the X-ray image to estimate weight and detect under/over filled products. The system is configurable for dual rejection, separating contaminated products from other quality errors. This aids in root cause analysis and implementing corrective actions, according to the company. The most recent generation of NextGuard is six times faster than the first generation.

    A wraparound detector is intended to reduce “blind spots,” built-in Internet remote supports hardware and software and easily removable conveyor facilitates quick cleaning and service. There are multiple available X-ray powers with low-cost extended warranties.
