Glass jars are created with natural variations and inconsistencies. While the overall weight and outer shape of a jar remain consistent from the mold, the varying thickness of the glass walls, and particularly the inner base, can be as much as 20 percent. This can make contamination detection challenging. Mettler Toledo offers a range of glass inspection systems to ensure all your physical contaminants are detected.
Various x-ray inspection systems are available for the inspection of glass containers, including systems with single beams, split beams, combination beams and angled beams.
