Completing the Advanced X2 Series of X-ray Inspection Systems: Affordable, Future-Proof Solutions with Enhanced Sensitivity, Dual Functionality and Unmatched Capabilities

Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection proudly announces the release of the innovative X52 Dual Energy x-ray inspection system to complete its X2 Series. Designed to meet the demands of challenging applications in packaged products, the X52 sets a new standard in detection capabilities at an incredible price point. The X52’s proprietary software provides increased adaptability by seamlessly transitioning between single energy, dual energy or both modes, optimising the performance of the system depending on the application.

In single energy mode, the X52 identifies a wide range of contaminants including glass, metal, mineral stone, calcified bone, dense plastic and rubber compounds based on their material composition, offering thorough inspection for product safety and quality. Dual energy mode further enhances accuracy by analysing materials’ densities, providing an advanced level of detection to preserve consumer well-being and uphold industry standards. 

The X52 x-ray inspection system excels in both efficiency and accuracy by seamlessly detecting foreign body contaminants while simultaneously completing a broad range of quality assurance checks. Through its advanced technology, the X52 significantly reduces false rejects, distinguishing between genuine contaminants and product variations with ease. This precision minimises unnecessary production halts and disruptions, allowing manufacturers to maintain operations and reduce unnecessary downtime. By maximising uptime and minimising waste, the X52 boosts productivity and reduces overall costs, setting a new standard in x-ray inspection technology. 

The X52 single and dual energy x-ray system is designed to future-proof manufacturing operations, instantly accommodating evolving product lines and applications. Its adaptable nature not only offers long-term reliability but also promotes sustainability and cost savings by consolidating multiple detection capabilities into a single machine, reducing the need for additional equipment. This approach provides manufacturers with peace of mind as they navigate changing industry landscapes, meaning they can meet both current and future production demands efficiently and effectively. 

Advanced Technology for High-Contrast Products 

Equipped with state-of-the-art features, the X52 offers increased sensitivity, thanks to its use of proprietary Advanced Material Discrimination (AMD) and ContamPlus™ software. Using advanced x-ray technology, the X52 inspects the contents of packaged products with exceptional accuracy. The AMD dual energy software enhances the system’s ability to differentiate between materials, offering precise contaminant detection even in challenging scenarios such as products that are overlapping  or vary in thickness. This helps provide peace of mind that your end products safer, more reliable and high-quality.  

Increasing Accuracy and Reliability 

Further showcasing its capabilities, the X52 incorporates HiGain+ DE detector technology, surpassing conventional solutions with enhanced accuracy and reliability. The HiGain+ DE detector, by Mettler-Toledo, provides exceptional sensitivity and resolution, enhancing material analysis with accuracy. This advanced technology offers thorough inspection without compromising efficiency, meeting the evolving needs of manufacturers across industries. 

Maximising Uptime and Performance 

Beyond its cutting-edge detection capabilities, the X52 also brings practical benefits to manufacturers, starting with its space-saving design. Engineered with a compact footprint, it maximises floor space in production facilities without compromising on performance. Additionally, the X52 is available with comprehensive service and support from the Mettler-Toledo global network of service experts, offering remote and on-site support, so manufacturers can maximise uptime and performance. 

Streamlining Regulatory Compliance 

Manufacturers can now easily comply with industry standards and streamline regulatory compliance through ProdX™, a data management software from Mettler-Toledo providing full regulatory documentation. The X52’s user-friendly interface allows for easy access to inspection data, enabling quick decision-making and proactive quality control measures. 

Committing to Excellence 

The X52 embodies the Mettler-Toledo commitment to excellence, combining smart industrial design with streamlined approaches. From elevating Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) to reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), the X52 operates at peak performance for extended periods of time. 

Completing the X2 Series 

The X52 completes the line-up for the X2 Series of x-ray inspection systems.  

In addition to the X52, the X2 Series consists of two other models – the X12 and X32. All are available in multiple line configurations 800, 1300, 1800 and 2000 millimeter line lengths: 

X12 High Performance X-ray System: This high performing single-lane x-ray inspection system comes as a standard configuration and is available at an attractive price point, featuring the HiGain detector, which generates sharper images to deliver outstanding contaminant detection. 

 X32 Advanced X-ray Solution: Offering enhanced sensitivity and product integrity performance, this x-ray inspection solution features the HiGain+ detector and is available in standard and custom configurations, with single or multi-lane capabilities. 

“The X52 x-ray inspection system marks a pivotal leap forward in product inspection technology,” says Mike Pipe, Head of Global Sales and Product Management at Mettler-Toledo Safeline X-ray. “With its forward-thinking design, the X52 future-proofs manufacturers by detecting unwanted contaminants in even the most challenging packages. Its unmatched performance, innovative features and comprehensive support set a new standard for product integrity and reliability. We are thrilled to provide manufacturers with the tools they need for enhanced product safety, quality and compliance now and in the future.”
