NextGuard C500 X-ray detection system features an aperture that is 35% wider and 50% taller than previous models, making it suited to inspect larger-sized products and cases. In addition, the machine footprint is only 20% to 30% larger to optimize production floor space. C500 uses a wide X-ray beam and arc-shaped detector designed to eliminate blind spots in the inspection tunnel. To assure there is enough X-ray power to penetrate thick and dense packaged products, the system is available with an optional 25% higher power source. This is desirable for products such as large meat/poultry packages, blocks of cheese, or ice cream tubs. Thermo Fisher Scientific, 763-783-2500, www.thermofisher.com.
