Eagle Product Inspection has announced its new RMI3/M X-ray inspection system, which provides superior contaminant detection for high-volume bulk meat applications. Designed to meet the strict standards required for machine construction and sanitation in the red meat industry, the RMI3/M X-ray system inspects unpackaged bulk raw beef, pork, lamb, and similar products for contaminants such as metal, glass, stone, and calcified bone.

Equipped with PXT™, Eagle’s high-performance dual-energy X-ray technology, the RMI3/M X-ray system offers 100 percent inspection coverage for contaminants in unpackaged bulk raw meat, delivering peace of mind to manufacturers and consumers alike. Dual-energy technology enables red meat processors to obtain high-resolution images and capture detailed data about the product being inspected. The RMI3/M X-ray system provides the industry’s highest level of inline, automated bone detection while simultaneously performing product quality and integrity checks. Accurate weight calculations prevent costly product giveaway, and statistics for mean value correction and giveaway calculations are actively tracked to optimize production efficiencies.

Additionally, the RMI3/M X-ray system has an IP69 ingress protection rating, offering unimpeded sight lines for extensive visual inspection. Its design features minimal contoured surfaces, aiding in reduced material harborage points. Integrating proven design principles from respected industry authorities such as the North American Meat Institute (NAMI), NSF, and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the entire machine can be disassembled and reassembled for thorough sanitation by a single person in a matter of minutes, maximizing production uptime. The system meets the criteria for Category 3 (EN954) and Performance Level “d” (PLd, EN13849) safety circuits, including full visualization in the user interface of the safety system status for the operator.

The RMI3/M X-ray system features SimulTask™ PRO advanced imaging and processing software that provides high-resolution, detailed X-ray images with the widest grayscale range (shades 0 to 65,535). Manufacturers and further processors will see increased detection accuracy and significantly reduced false rejects with the new X-ray system.

Moreover, the system includes Eagle Repository™, which provides a simple way of storing, viewing, and transferring production information such as statistics, event logs, manually saved images, and reject images to other devices for storage. Optionally, the Eagle TraceServer™ X-ray software program records valuable production data and machine status information from one or more of Eagle’s X-ray machines and consolidates it into a single centralized database.
