INOSPEXION Bone Detection X-Ray


Food safety & quality X-ray inspection solutions based on superior image resolution, contrast & sharpness. Our unique Long Wave X-ray technology provides solutions for  bone detection, packaging integrity assessment, foreign bodies contamination detection & process & product quality control.

InnospeXion designs and produces the most sensitive X-ray systems for food safety & quality control inspection. The systems feature a unique long-wavelength X-ray technology developed by InnospeXion. This technology provides images of a very superior quality compared to other X-ray imaging systems and this is the key reason why we can detect and quantify details that are invisible to others.

Our Long Wave X-ray technology bone detection system finds the smallest bones, having a much higher contrast between bones and meat, as well as longer X-ray waves, all due to a 16X better resolution and an advanced software solution.
It offers the same speed as conventional systems for bone detection, it is hygienically designed, with a straightforward human interface. The system for fish and chicken bone detection is identical and installed worldwide in the fish & poultry industry


• The core of the InnospeXion Long Wave X-ray technology is a specifically developed high flux, low-energy X-ray source, with high stability and uniformity. At low energy, the attenuation between two substances is distinctly higher than at higher energy (e.g. above 25-30 keV).

• A tailored, high sensitivity detector offers a high resolution of 0.1 mm. A special high strength, low density, and low thickness conveyor belt secures little degradation of the signal, and a special design secures optimal use of the radiation beam. This constellation secures very high-quality images of small details, e.g. fish bones.

Technical specification

• The image resolution used by InnospeXion is 0.1 mm × 0.1 mm compared to 0.4 mm × 0.4 mm used in standard X-ray systems •improves the software ability to recognize a defect as such and reduces false rejects due to lower noise.
• Based on LW X-ray, the long wave X-ray technology built system operates at a speed up to 150 items per minute. When an item enters the system, a sensor is activated and a time stamp is related to the item. When the item has passed the radiation beam, the imaging and data processing is accomplished, in near real-time.
• Based on the image analysis result, the item may be sorted in up to 16 different classes. This classification and its timing parameters are PLC controlled, and accessible through I/O terminals. The specific sorting is accomplished by means of e.g. a pneumatic cylinder. For some defined error types, a signal is sent as well to a central PLC, enabling a corrective action to be enforced so further similar errors or deviations can be avoided.
• Cleaning can be accomplished after opening the system hatches, extraction of belt and withdrawal of the steel flap or rubber flap curtains. All hatches, tunnels and curtain arrangements are part of the safety system and are interlocked.
• Human-machine interfacing is generally through a simple touchscreen, however, external control is also possible.
