Eagle Product Inspection, Tampa, Fla., has taken its image analysis software—SimulTask PRO—to the next level of product inspection. Eagle Product SimulTaskPRO

The latest enhancements of the x-ray inspection software, which detects and rejects contaminants and product defects inside closed packages, now incorporates seal integrity, fill level inspection, check weighing and component count features. These advanced capabilities enable food manufacturers to improve overall equipment effectiveness and complete multi-level product inspection in one pass in seconds.

SimulTask PRO image analysis software allows simultaneous x-ray inspection of different products within many formats and sizes of packaging. The system inspects for a number of contaminants, such as metal, glass, dense plastics and calcified bone, in packaged products on multiple production lanes at high-throughput speeds. Similarly, itscheckweighing feature examines the density of the product, which is then used to calculate the total weight while also verifying the presence or absence of specific items and verifying count.

This intelligent software can also weigh separate compartments in packaging such as ready meals, and automatically removes packages that fall outside the pre-agreed limits. The x-ray technology automatically identifies any abnormalities, so the inadequate product can be instantly removed from the production line, reducing unscheduled downtime and safeguarding quality.  

To optimize production efficiency and ensure consistent product quality across the manufacturing line, a simple user interface provides easy access to statistics and reports. Data specifying the weight of products, number of products inspected, amount of rejects and the breakdown of the reject types between contaminants and other defects are all captured real-time.
