A&D Inspection has launched its new Protex X-ray range, which features a compact footprint and advanced imaging technology.

Unveiled at Pack Expo 2018, the Protex AD-4991-2510 and AD-4991-2515 models are aimed at manufacturers looking to increase efficiency on their production lines.

“With the global launch of our new X-ray product line, A&D is now able to offer our customers a complete product inspection portfolio,” said Terry Duesterhoeft, president and CEO, A&D Company – Americas.

“The superior value and combination of features – from compact size to simplistic installation to superior imaging capabilities – mean manufacturers will be able to leverage the benefits of x-ray performance and functionality in existing product lines, with very little reconfiguration required.”

The Protex range has a number of algorithmic inspection options, including the ability to measure overall mass; detect missing components; identify contaminants; and evaluate shapes to determine if the correct product is in the package.

Daniel Cannistraci, product manager for A&D Inspection, says the range can help customers save money. “The Protex Series is designed to protect our customers by allowing multiple inspection capabilities in a small form factor, which ultimately leads to a quicker payback on investment.

“As with our other product lines, we empower customers to meet or exceed their food safety standards,” he said.
