Johnsonville Sausage, North America’s largest fresh sausage manufacturer, initiated a group wide x-ray project in order to find a final product that delivered reliability, clean-ability and ease of usage.
For a cheese maker with highly automated processes, a combo checkweigher and metal detector made the perfect tool for ensuring compliance with the HACCP regulations applicable to food production.
To further reinforce positive customer experiences, an ice cream manufacturer challenged themselves to further minimize its already small risk of foreign body contamination by implementing x-ray inspection.
More than 200 million baked goods leave a bread manufacturer's plant annually. With such high volume, how does the company ensure its products meet the highest requirements of safety and quality?
A condiments manufacturer integrated an x-ray inspection system to overcome challenges associated with inspecting glass jars with metal lids while enhancing the quality of its products.
When Edesia first opened its factory, the company used inline magnets in their processing line to find contaminants. When they realized they needed a better inspection system, metal detection wasn’t the answer because of the foil pouches used in the packaging process. So Edesia decided to incorporate x-ray into their production line.
Updated FDA guidelines present new risks and challenges for food manufacturers. Fortunately, X-ray inspection offers manufacturers an effective and scalable way to proactively mitigate risk. Find out how.
If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. That advice extends to investments in capital equipment, including x-ray systems that protect products and brands from costly recalls, food safety problems and quality issues.
Probability of detection (POD) seems like a relatively simple number which vendors use to reassure potential customers of a machine’s capabilities for contaminant detection. However, there is more to the numeric value of POD than just taking it for face value. This white paper explains how POD is calculated and why 100% POD is unachievable and it also looks at factors that affect sensitivity of contamination detection while lastly discussing how the latest innovations in x-ray inspection technology are designed to enhance detection performance, while explaining how food processors can ensure POD is consistent throughout the lifetime of their x-ray system.
