X5C Compact X-Ray Inspection

Designed with packed convenience food, ready meals and small packaged goods in mind, the X5C is LOMA's smallest X-ray system available, with a machine length of 1000 mm and offers excellent Critical Control Point (CCP) protection in the smallest footprint possible - and manufactured under LOMA's Designed to Survive philosophy to provide one of the toughest systems on the market.

Ideal Replacement for Poorly Performing Metal Detectors
The X5C detects all types of metal (i.e. stainless steel, ferrous and non-ferrous), bone, glass or dense plastics and can be used for basic product integrity tests (i.e. missing items, object checking, fill level). It is especially good at inspecting products packaged in foil or heavy metallized film packaging and overcoming the problems with Ferrous in Foil metal detectors.

Retail and Standards Compliant
From IFS, FSMA, Marks and Spencer, Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Waitrose and BRC, all LOMA machines can be configured to suit the latest code of practice (COP) to ensure compliance.

Designed for New Users of X-ray

A simplified yet powerful inspection feature set, plug and play installation and software, reliable inspection and low ongoing running costs make the X5C ideal for factories wanting to take the first step into using X-ray technology.

Lowest Cost of Ownership

With low running power, minimal consumable parts, and excellent tank life, the X5C offers one of the lowest costs of ownership on the market.
