Our newest and most advanced scanner offers a resolution 225 times more powerful than a standard food inspection system1.

The Micron Scan can detect glass fragments down to 1.0mm and stainless steel wire to 0.1mm as well as stone, calcified bone and certain rubbers and plastics.

The extremely high resolution of this scanner is achieved using advanced linear sensors that can accurately detect minute contaminants. Its detection capabilities are increased by the sensor being less dependent on the orientation and location of a foreign body within the product.

The AIS X-Ray Micron Scan excels at the inspection of loose product such as flours or powders where the contaminants are likely to be extraordinarily small and difficult to detect.

This level of detection is not possible on today’s high speed production lines. The Micron Scan is designed to operate off-line and – to achieve optimum accuracy – be operated by our expert staff.
