Eriez Introduces Live, Real-time, Online X-Ray Product Testing

December 1, 2009
Eriez now offers a way for customers to view the performance of an Eriez x-ray machine live online. This eliminates the need for an on-site facility visit, saving time and money.  

Customers can “virtually” attend the material test in real time with Eriez’ interactive online x-ray testing via a password-protected Web site. Participants will see their products passing through an Eriez E-Z Tec x-ray inspection system to determine its performance for foreign object detection, mass, fill level, or missing items. Multiple viewers can watch from different locations and ask questions live to Eriez’ test personnel. 

“We receive products sent from all over the world, along with contaminants the customers want tested,” says Ray Spurgeon, Eriez product manager—inspection systems. “The online testing precludes the need for our prospects to be physically present at our facility to see actual tests. The resolution on the computer screen as we conduct the live testing has the same clarity as if you were actually at the Eriez testing facility.”

Eriez is the only manufacturer to offer online x-ray testing, according to Spurgeon. “Depending upon the customer’s application, we will test as many foreign objects as required to give our customers the level of comfort they deserve before purchasing the x-ray equipment.”

Eriez E-Z Tec x-ray inspection systems use advanced linear array technology that provides high sensitivity, speed, and sophistication. X-ray systems monitor product and package attributes such count, mass, fill level, fat analysis, broken, or damaged product, as well as detecting unwanted metals, stone, glass, bone, and some plastics. Eriez also produces a complete line of metal detectors.
