This article explains how a variety of product inspection equipment on production line increases confidence that due diligence has been taken to ensure product quality.
“It’s typical in the food industry to see companies simply react to problems. Our x-ray equipment, metal detectors, checkweighers and tank scales allow us to be proactive and confident that all our products are exceptional,” said Philip Dardaine, CEO of La Provence. “The most important thing is that our food is safe, for the sake of consumers and customers as well as ourselves. We take food safety very seriously. That’s why we rely on the METTLER TOLEDO Product Inspection Group.”
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.”
In the food production industry, product contamination by microorganisms such as bacteria or fungi presents a potential and omnipotent risk. It is therefore important to prevent any type of contamination and to facilitate its removal. The public's access to multimedia also makes it more sensitive to the importance of hygienic design. This is why more and more facility and machine builders as well as manufacturers of individual components of these face this increasing challenge.
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.
