  1. Discover Hidden Profits In Your Rejected Bulk Flow Product

    Did you know every time your metal detector rejects a contaminant, good product is eliminated as well? How much product goes into the trash depends on your equipment. Certainly, some rejected product is an essential cost of protecting your brand and customers. But the right equipment can significantly minimize the amount of rejected product and thereby reduce the daily costs of keeping your food supply safe.

  2. Measuring With Vision Inspection In Plastic Bottle Manufacturing

    A properly calibrated vision inspection system can spot container defects before filling, preventing contamination and spillage, reducing waste, and improving standards compliance.

  3. Manufacturing Plants Based On The Lego Principle

    Small batches and multiple products in the same plant — these are the market demands to which more and more manufacturers need to adjust. The answer is based on the "Lego principle."

  4. How To Ensure The Safety Of Products Packaged In Tall Rigid Containers

    Metal cans, glass jars, plastic, and PET bottles are used extensively in the food and beverage industries to package a wide range of products. However, different applications require different product inspection solutions. Selecting the right x-ray system to suit a specific product and packaging type is essential to ensure optimal sensitivity, minimize false rejects, protect the well-being of consumers, and reduce the risk of costly, brand-damaging product recalls.

  5. Avoiding Cross-Contamination Risks For Food Safety

    According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 600 million people — almost 10 per cent of the global population — fall ill after eating contaminated food. To combat the issues of contamination, many food manufacturers, who have previously relied upon manual sorting and inspection, are embracing novel technologies and sorting systems.

  6. Optimizing Yield For Food Manufacturers

    In order to meet the global population’s growing demand for food, research by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) predicts that the worldwide food manufacturing and processing industries need to increase their total output by 70 percent by 2050. This article will explain several ways to enhance the efficiency of food production.

  7. Time To Sort Out Food Waste

    Almost a third of all food produced worldwide is never eaten, leading to 1.3 billion tons of food waste each year. This includes around 45 per cent of all fruit and vegetables and 20 per cent of meat. Just one quarter of this wasted food could feed the 795 million chronically hungry people around the world.

  8. Food Safety First Is The Order Of The Day

    Data revealing aflatoxins to be the biggest cause of foodrelated recalls demonstrates the important role effective sorting and quality analysis systems can play in boosting food safety on the production line. By Ashley Hunter, Senior Vice President & Head of TOMRA Sorting Food

  9. Sustainability In The Food Processing Industry: Your Guide To Improve Energy Efficiencies

    As environmental scrutiny of global industries continues to grow, governments are seeking to impose energy efficiency targets on companies in order to comply with new directives. By Dr. Doug Reid, Engineering Manager at TOMRA Sorting Food

  10. Automation Essential To Sustainable Success

    Continued advances in automation and robotics are making the global food manufacturing and processing industries safer, more efficient and able to deliver higher profits. By Steven Van Geel, Sales Director China at TOMRA Sorting Food
