This case study explains how Danrice, an international B2B supplier of pre-cooked grains and pasta, uses x-ray inspection to eliminate foreign body contaminants and keep consumers safe.
In this case study, a British chocolate maker explains how x-ray inspection in production processes has strengthened its contamination detection capabilities and improved safety and quality assurance.
Almi GmbH & Co whose headquarters and production site is in Oftering near Linz in Austria is one of the leading global manufacturers of high-quality spice blends and additives for sausage, ham, meat, and fish products.
To ensure that the highest quality levels are preserved at all times, Germany-based Koenig Backmittel processes only the very best raw ingredients, whilst also placing great importance on its state-of-the-art production technology. As part of its incoming goods checks for hazelnuts, an x-ray inspection system inspects the raw ingredients for contaminants to provide a significant part of the overall quality management process. This helps ensure the company follows through on one of its guiding principles, “Quality Ensures Success.”
To assure product quality and food safety, one of the world’s leading cheese manufacturers recently turned to x-ray inspection and metal detection technology. The company installed x-ray for bulk packaging line and twelve metal detectors for all of their other cheese manufacturing lines.
Building a food manufacturing facility from scratch would be a daunting project even for someone with a strong background in this industry. So imagine how challenging it was for Ivan and Elaine Pezzoli whose only previous experience was as a restaurateur in Brazil.
Every packaged good must be weighed before distribution to ensure it is within company and industry specification. While selling underweight products can lead to companies being fined or subject to other penalties, overweight products generate unnecessary and expensive product giveaway.
When evaluating potential new x-ray product inspection equipment, it’s important to be aware that many system suppliers will try to adapt designs that are used in general packaging for use in hostile and harsh environments. Although such ‘off-the-shelf’ systems may initially appear cheaper, choosing an x-ray product inspection equipment supplier that designs systems from the ground up will ensure they’ve analyzed the pain points within a specific industry and responded with an advanced solution to meet those challenges.
Inline meat fat analysis equipment can help slaughterhouses and meat processors optimize raw material use, comply with end-product specifications and maximize profits and at the same time ensuring the meat products they process are free from contaminants such as bones or metal.
This white paper explains what ionizing radiation is and puts radiation doses into context, before looking at how safety regulations differ between countries and states.
Modern meat processors are increasingly using Least Cost Formulation (LCF) to optimize their production. LCF is a mathematical optimization technique that enables meat processors to put together a formula or recipe at the least cost or expense. It specifically applies when a formula or recipe must meet certain technical parameters and constraints, and where there is flexibility in ingredient use in meeting those parameters. When using LCF, meat processors must consider several factors, including variability in the composition of raw materials, availability of raw materials, cost of raw materials, and the demand on production.
Uncover the less obvious aspects of cost and performance, and understand recent technology advances and trending sanitation demands that will help you choose a system that meets your detection goals.
