Automated Product Inspection Systems for Poultry Applications Automated Product Inspection Systems for Poultry Applications

Eagle is experienced in providing x-ray inspection solutions to the poultry industry and we understand the different challenges inherent to the industry, especially regarding detection of bones. Automated poultry inspection systems offer processors an inline contamination inspection system which includes x-ray, trim tables, infeed, reject and return facilities. This system offers much more reliable and consistent results than manual inspection, resulting in consistent product quality and ultimately protecting your brand.

Installing a trimming station in conjunction with an Eagle x-ray system can help poultry manufacturers enhance product safety and quality, as well as maximize yields and profits. Trimming stations allow chicken breasts to be trimmed, deboned and cut to a particular size, before being subjected to x-ray inspection, where bones down to 2 mm in size can be detected and rejected. Furthermore, if products don’t meet manufacturers’ exact requirements, they can be returned to the trimming station for re-work.
