Mekitec SIDEMEKI X-Ray Inspection System

Mekitec SIDEMEKI X-Ray Inspection System

SIDEMEKI™ delivers the best value X-ray quality control for tall packages, both liquids and solid foods alike. This inspection system brings a new approach changing the existing standards towards true pack-for-pack traceability. This trend towards primary packaging inspection is now available for side-view applications, such as PET bottles and containers.

SIDEMEKI™ – X-Ray Quality Control for Tall Products The SIDEMEKI™ system is designed for production lines where the food is in packages that are taller than wider, such as bottles, cartons, containers and cans. Ensuring smooth production flow is essential with these packaging types setting a higher expectation for the design of the inspection equipment. That’s why SIDEMEKI™ is completely lead curtain-free X-ray system, equipped with secure product guides ensuring the food packages transfer effortlessly through, the system is also equipped with various sensors that monitor the system and its functionalities, making SIDEMEKI truly self-monitoring Critical Control Point.

SIDEMEKI™ is the only quality control solution offering food producers a choice to select one or two X-ray generators based on the exact need for the product inspection. With tall products, this means that the system always has the needed inspection accuracy necessary for foreign object detection and specific quality functions, e.g. headspace, fill level, and cap inspection. This equals the best value in the industry.
