Loma Systems Named 2013 Golden Mousetrap Award Finalist for New X5 X-ray Inspection System with Adaptive Array Technology; Earns Prestigious Industry Recognition

Loma Systems, the world’s leading engineering and manufacturing company specializing in metal detection, checkweighing and x-ray inspection systems, today announced that its new X5 x-ray inspection system with Adaptive Array Technology was named a finalist for the 2013 Design News (a UBM publication) Golden Mousetrap Awards in the Electronics & Test category.

The X5 x-ray inspection system is engineered for heavy-duty processing environments. Rounded surfaces ensure contaminants cannot accumulate. A tubular framework is easy-to-clean and robust enough to withstand the rigors of harsh washdown environments. Impermeable seals added to the x-ray cabinet prevent water ingress and the new quick release mechanism allows the conveyor belt to be changed within a few minutes.

Market-leading Adaptive Array Technology (AAT) eliminates the need to specify the diode array pixel size and will automatically adjust from 0.4mm, 0.8mm and 1.6mm to provide up to 25% better detection performance. This allows users of the X5 to optimize detection results regardless of the density of potential contaminants – a manual process on competitive systems.

"Design News’ recognition of the X5, with Adaptive Array Technology, as a leader in technical innovation validates the decision made by many of the world’s leading brands to select Loma as their x-ray inspection partner because of the robust technology and uniqueness that powers the products we bring to market,” said Laura Studwell, Marketing Manager North America, Loma Systems.

“We are proud to have the X5 x-ray with Adaptive Array Technology named a finalist for this prestigious award,” continues Studwell.

“We feel honored to be recognized with engineering powerhouses like Silicon Labs, Texas In struments, Agilent Technologies, Mitsubishi Electronics and Omron."

Serving as the well-known awards program for engineering innovation and creativity in product design, the Design News Golden Mousetrap Awards has been honoring excellence for more than two decades. This year’s program has 4 categories organized by technical focus. Finalists represent the best products, technologies and services that were brought to market in 2013.

2013 Design News Golden Mousetrap Award winners will be announced during a special ceremony at the Anaheim Marriott Ballroom on

Tuesday, February 11 in Anaheim, CA during UBM’s annual WestPack Exhibition. Tickets for the can’t-miss event can be purchased at:

Proceeds from the event will benefit FIRST, an organization that provides engineering scholarships to high school students looking to further their ambitions.
