Over the past few years as retailers’ demands have been growing increasingly more stringent, food processors are turning to more comprehensive forms of inspection. Combination systems are becoming more popular, integrating the technologies of multiple inspection systems into one physical system.

Installing a combination system with integral controls can simplify the product inspection process without compromising detection performance.
