Whether a product can be inspected by the case depends on three factors:
- The size of the case. Our conveyors can accommodate a maximum case size of approximately 24 inches x 14 inches.
- The density of the suspected contaminant. A particularly dense contaminant, like stainless steel particles, can be detected by x-ray more easily than a less dense contaminant, like plastic.
- The smallest size foreign particle that the customer needs to detect. For example, if the customer knows they have lost an intact bolt it is more likely that their product may be inspected by the case than if they must find .8 mm particles.
CXR offers free testing of all products and contaminants. Simply send us a case of your product along with the suspected contaminant and we will tell you whether x-ray inspection is a viable solution and what the lowest cost and safest option is for x-ray inspecting your product.
