    Boost OEE And Find Smaller Metal Contaminants

    ‘Product effect’ (a phenomenon where the type of product being inspected can itself hinder the inspection technology’s capability to identify a particular contaminant) has long been a problem for food manufacturers. In the case of metal detection, product effect can be caused by a number of factors such as high moisture or salt content, temperature variations, size and shape of the product, orientation through the detector and packaging material.

    Smart Cameras And Sensors For Packaging Applications

    With the increasing tendency towards the use of high-end image processing systems and computerized comparison of analysis data, it is now possible to implement a range of basic functions into the production run as part of the optical inspection process. This includes comparing packaging on the production line against compliant images and rejecting items which don't meet the standard. It also includes measuring product dimensions and determining whether any tolerance values deviate from the norm. Other tasks, such as checking product data, print quality standards and ensuring packing units are properly filled can be performed.
