Raycon D+


Intelligent x-ray product inspection system for packaged products – End of line inspection

  • Longer lifetime of core components
  • Application variability
  • Surpassing detection requirements
  • Increased ease of use


Performance features


The RAYCON D+ product inspection system detects all contaminants that due to their density, chemical composition, or mechanical dimensions absorb x-rays better than the surrounding product.

With its optional capability using Dual-Energy technology the performance for soft contaminants gets extremely improved for materials e.g. types of plastics (PVC, aso.), rubber, ceramics, stones, calcified bones and similar materials.


Detectability of different materials depending on their density

The RAYCON D+ product inspection system is characterised by the following
performance features:

  • Throughput: ~250 pcs./min. (product specific)
  • Detection capability starting from Ø 0,3 mm
  • 200W long life x-ray generator
  • Highest operator safety due to low x-ray emission < 0.5 µSv/h
  • Modular and stable frame design allows easy transportation and safe installation
  • Ambient temperatures from 0°C to + 40°C
  • IP 66 protection class within conveyor area
Functional diagram

The system comprises of the following main components:

(A) X-ray tube
This is where x-rays are electrically generated. The x-rays are emitted from the tube through a narrow slot and as a fan-shaped beam pass through the product to be inspected from back to front.
(B) X-ray beam
(C) Transport system
A PE flat belt (self guiding) uniformly transports the product to be inspected through the x-ray beam. This makes it possible to scan the
product line-by-line.
(D) Detector unit
The linear detector that is installed above the inspection aperture converts the arriving x-rays into an electrical signal from which a digital
x-ray image is created.
– 0,4 mm HD resolution
– 0,8 mm Dual Energy
(E) Industry-type PC
The PC is used to evaluate the images and to accurately control the reject systems.


Key Benefits
