Equipment such as checkweighers and X-ray systems can take on multiple roles as part of a fully integrated packing line, explains Ciaran Murphy, quality control business manager, Ishida Europe.

Heat and control’s business manager for packaging and inspection systems Robert Marguccio explores the inspection process.

With food safety becoming an increasing concern for food manufacturers in Southeast Asia, there’s a trend towards advanced X-ray inspection technology.

Kyle Thomas, strategic business unit (SBU) manager at Eagle Product Inspection, looks at the rising popularity of metalised film as a packaging format and the increased need for x-ray inspection as a result.

Food safety is a top priority for food manufacturing companies today, increasing the demand for inspection systems. What should companies be mindful of and what tips can they use to stay ahead of the changing standards for product inspection?

The Eagle Bulk 415 PRO by Eagle Product Inspection aids manufacturers in dry bulk food inspection with enhanced contaminant detection and removal, reduced product waste, and improved line efficiency.

The easily disassembled system for cleaning and maintenance features a cutting-edge cupped conveyor that has raised edges to promote a more uniform product depth across the belt. Combined with the company’s x-ray technology, these help discriminate materials by their chemical composition rather than relying on grey scale images. This hence optimises detection of contaminants such as glass, metal, plastics or rocks.
