There’s a common misconception among packaging manufacturers that one inspection technology, like metal detection or x-ray, is sufficient for complete quality control. In reality, it is not that straightforward: both technologies offer certain strengths and weaknesses, and both have enjoyed great advancements in detecting contaminants in your products.
