WIPOTEC-OCS, a Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA-based manufacturer and supplier of precision in-motion weighing and X-Ray scanning equipment, will introduce a new compact member of its SC family of X-Ray inspection scanners at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), January 28-30 in Atlanta. The SC-2000 Mini X-Ray Scanner, which can inspect up to 400 products per minute with exceedingly few false rejects, will be unveiled at Booth B4201.

True to its name, the SC-2000 Mini is just 700mm in width, offering an outstanding process speed to footprint ratio. Highly modular for a comprehensive range of potential inspection setups, the machine features integrated conveyor technology with discharge units, and a switch cabinet can be configured separately from the measuring head. The SC-2000 Mini’s external control cabinet affords easy integration into existing production lines.

Also at IPPE, WIPOTEC-OCS will premiere an enhanced wash down system for its signature SC-WD-6000-B X-Ray Scanner. The latest bulk flow model meets protection class IP69K, making it suitable for wet environments and other challenging cleaning conditions. The module’s C-shaped product space, beveled surfaces and stainless steel housing fulfill even the most stringent hygiene requirements.

Capable of inspecting many tons of bulk meat per hour and offering unsurpassed foreign body detection sensitivity, the SC-WD-6000-B X-Ray Scanner – like all machines of the SC series – is equipped with an HD-TDI camera detector. In conjunction with the metal-ceramic tube, it generates extremely high-resolution X-Ray images for the unit’s custom-designed image processing software. The scanner’s flexible ejection options ensure accurate separation of bad product while maximizing good product throughput.

Finally, WIPOTEC-OCS also will showcase what for the meat packaging industry has become the workhorse of checkweighers. Its HC-M-WD-MDi Checkweigher will be displayed with an integrated metal detector. Capable of handling up to 250 products per minute, the machine utilizes WIPOTEC’s precision Electro-Magnetic Force Restoration (EMFR) technology, which enables extremely short settling times to deliver fast, accurate and repeatable weighing results. An intuitive software interface offers ease of operation, and the model meets all food processing industry requirements including IFS-compliant product control and other HACCP or LMHV/FDA hygiene regulations.
