X-RAY INSPECTION WHITE PAPERS & ARTICLES

  • Packaged Food Manufacturers Guide To Reducing Total Delivered Cost

    Traditionally, manufacturers have considered Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in their procurement analysis when purchasing equipment. However, a stronger financial calculation is to quantify how new technology such as product inspection equipment can contribute to reducing the Total Delivered Cost (TDC) of packaged food. This eGuide uses the example of a US-based snack food manufacturer to illustrate how technological advancements in product inspection equipment – notably metal detection and x-ray inspection - can reduce the TDC.

  • Plant-Based Foods: Meeting The Challenges Of Innovation And Food Safety

    Physical contaminant prevention is important and therefore is part of every food safety plan; that is not likely to change. But what is continuously changing is the addition of  new, innovative food products that require consideration of the most appropriate food safety inspection solutions. One of the fastest growing areas of innovation is plant-based proteins. Read more about this trend and how product inspection programs can adapt.

  • What Food Processors Should Know: Metal Detection Vs. X-ray Inspection

    Consumer safety has always been a primary concern for food processors. HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) has been a methology recommended by the FDA since the 1950s and food producers have always been conscious of their brand’s protection. The recent enactment of the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has turned the intensity up even higher.

  • Meat Supply Chain: A 'How To’ Guide For BRCGS Audits

    BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8 emphasizes an end-to-end approach to food safety. Here are some steps to understand and comply with a BRC audit of your current practices and vulnerabilities.

  • Ensuring Food Safety Through The Prevention Of Physical Contamination

    Incidents of physical contaminants in food can have a detrimental impact on brand reputation. This white paper explains different types of physical contamination in food and how to prevent them.

  • X-Ray Technology Ensures Food Safety And Quality In Tall, Rigid Containers

    Tall, rigid containers — metal cans, doypacks, cartons, composite cans/tubes, and plastic and glass containers — are used extensively across the food industry. However, inspecting these types of packaging for physical contaminants and quality defects using x-ray inspection can prove challenging for numerous reasons. This white paper looks at the ability of x-ray technology to enhance food safety, quality control and operational efficiency.
