As a market leader based in Switzerland, Bell Food Group is one of the major processors of meat and convenience products in Europe. The company has been the exclusive meat supplier, within Switzerland, for an international fast food chain for a number of decades. A new X-ray inspection solution at Bell's Oensingen site in Switzerland checks the customer's burger patties for various foreign bodies, plus product errors and visual defects, such as patties joined together, holes, dents and product flakes.
Increased customer requirements and demands in terms of quality assurance and production capacity gave Bell the push to rethink the configuration of their production line for burger patties. Bell decided to dismantle the previous line, carry out a hall conversion and replace individual production line components as part of modernization measures.
