NextGuard™ X-Ray Detection Systems

The Thermo Scientific™ NextGuard™ X-ray detection systems detects both metallic and non-metallic foreign objects in products. Unlike metal detection systems, X-ray systems minimize the effects of “wet” products.

NextGuard™ X-ray detection systems are designed for a wide range of applications in the food industry due to their enhanced capabilities. Besides that, they can inspect packaged products for missing pieces or components, under and over-fills, and other quality problems with easily customizable vision software.


• The product verification software option allows users to perform a wide range of size, position and count inspections
• Additional algorithms target the detection of fewer contaminants in textured composite products such as nuts or tea boxes
• Optional software for the estimation of the mass utilizes the density information in the X-RAY image to calculate weight and then detect problematic products
• Configurable for dual rejection, separating contaminated products from other quality errors
• Compact size for easy installation and use
• Innovative nonlinear detector to eliminate inspection blind spots
• Removable conveyor for simple directional change and / or maintenance
• Special design for high reliability performance and immediate diagnosis and repair
• Built-in remote monitoring capability that allows quick identification of any problem
