The exhibit will also have an ‘Ask the Expert’ theme with the company’s metal detection, checkweighing and X-ray technical specialists available to address questions pertinent to global food processors, manufacturers and packers.
The streamlined X5c was developed in response to growing demand for a more cost effective yet highly functional X-ray solution. With retailers’ codes of practice increasingly specifying the use of X-ray, Loma’s X5c machine is primarily aimed at companies running multi-product, retail ready lines who are keen to make the switch to X-ray inspection technology for the first time.
As part of the ‘Ask the Expert’ initiative, visitors to Loma’s stand will be able to get advice from the company’s panel of technical specialists. Whether experienced or new to the food industry, it is an opportunity to discuss the latest developments in metal detection, checkweighing and X-ray contaminant inspection or to discover how to overcome challenges they might be facing in their respective production environments.
Loma’s X5c X-ray inspection system represents considerable investment by Loma in developing a fully specified system that offers high quality contaminant inspection using a reduced number of well-proven subcomponents and streamlined design.
To comply with CFR21 part 11, Loma’s X5c is multilevel password protected for improved data management allowing the system to log events against individual operators. Produced from brushed stainless steel, it also offers an ultra-hygienic design for easy cleaning and low maintenance and serviceability.
Suitable for the detection of glass, calcified bone, rubber, stone as well as ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel metal in various packaging, Loma’s X5c operates at line speeds up to 50 metres per minute and measures just one metre in length. Capable of handling products up to 100mm (height) and 300mm (width) but weighing no more than 3kg, it is particularly suitable for the inspection of ready meal lines.
