Inline Product Inspection Systems

Inline Product Inspection Systems from Bizerba. The three main types of inspection systems are as follows. Metal Detectors, Vision Inspection systems and X-Ray inspection systems. All of which can easily be integrated with industrial checkweighing systems. Currently the most popular combination would be X-Ray inspection followed by vision inspection. The advantages over metal detectors is X-Ray food inspection systems will not only identify metal but an endless list of potential contaminants including, glass, bone, rubber. X-Ray Food systems will even check that the density meets the requirement that you have set up on the system.

To accompany the X-Ray food system the second stage is the vision inspection system. These machines not only check the integrity of the package additionally checks the seals of the package, the correct package has been used. The correct labels have been used and will also check the expiry or used by dates and product descriptions. Any packages that fall outside this criteria will be rejected immediately.

Inline Product Inspection Systems – With Vision

Also consider the newest vision inspection system in the Bizerba portfolio is the ThermoSecure L. This system can be used as a stand alone unit to check packages from above and below. High IP protection lends this system to wet areas or exposed food products, adding the extra layer of protection you may require. We recommend you use an inline checkweigher with  vision inspection systems.

Inline Product Inspection Systems – Metal Detection

Furthermore metal detection inspection systems are still extremely popular, they are able to detect minute and even trace amounts of metal contaminants well below the recommended industry standards. At times where sensitive products such as baby food or medical items need to be 100% contaminant free. All three systems situated or placed inline. With an inline checkweigher for added verification.

Meat Slicer Design

Meat Slicer design to help reduce the risk of illness from food borne pathogens

Considering a 2015 study by Purdue University suggests standard cleaning procedures don’t sufficiently eliminate the potentially deadly bacteria Listeria. Researchers found a disturbing 9.5% of the samples taken from retail delis contaminated with Listeria.  Samples were from floors, drains, all contact points.

Deli meats have long been associated with Listeria. While it is estimated to infect about 1600 people a year, it is fatal to 260 of them, making it the deadliest of food borne pathogens. The elderly, pregnant women, young children, immune compromised are most susceptible.

Additionally there are about 50,000 reported cases / year of illness caused by Salmonella. The CDC estimates there are a staggering 2 – 4 million cases of Salmonellae / year in the USA when unreported cases are factored in. Of 1000 people infected, 220 will require hospitalization and 8 will die.

In recent years there have been two prominent Salmonella outbreaks linked to a deli slicer. In one case, the bacteria thrived behind a thumb guard and contaminated the sliced product. This was a design deficiency that relied on a silicone seal that failed with routine cleaning.

A 2010 outbreak in Rhode Island was ultimately traced back to a slicer. At some point, contaminated tomatoes were prepared in the machine leaving behind debris in hard to clean areas. According to the RI Department of Health, of all infections connected to deli meats, as much as 80% have come from meats sliced at retail groceries.

Meat Slicer Design – Key Points

Also it is reasonable to anticipate food debris collecting on the slicer. The FDA requires the slicers to be cleaned every 4 hours. Designing a slicer that has no gaps, recesses, seams, potential harborage points, silicone seals, is essential to protect the consumer as well as the owner. NSF ANSI 8 is a minimum standard. Bizerba exceeds the minimum, providing the highest hygiene protection available in the world.

Construction details of the slicer are the first line of defence against illness from food borne pathogens.

Meat Slicer Design – Solutions

Furthermore we use a one piece extruded carriage plate. The thumb guard is attached by stir friction welding. This eliminates the possibility of porosity. This is an expensive process but most effective. Other manufacturers bolt the thumb guard to the carriage creating a seam.  Cross contamination risk is enhanced.The Bizerba slice thickness knob is flush mounted with the additional protection of a UL 157 seal. The other manufacturers recess their knob into the housing creating a hard too clean cavity. The slice thickness knob is touched hundreds of times a day. Cross contamination is inevitable.

Also the gauge plate is in constant contact with the product. Bizerba uses a one piece extruded aluminium gauge plate for optimal protection. Bolt-on, 2 piece assemblies have inherent contamination risks both immediate and long term. Bizerba completely seals the blade to the machine housing with a UL 157 seal. No gaps in this high contact area.

13 questions to our CEO Robert Slykhuis

Spotlight:  Robert Slykhuis, President & CEO, Bizerba North America

  1. Hi Rob. Let’s start off with something easy. Where are you from? I am a Canadian from Dutch parents. Although working a lot of my career in the US I make my home in Bond Head, near  Toronto, Canada.
  1. Why did you decide to pursue a career in the food industry? Not a lot of planning or forethought went into it. From school I was pursuing a sales career in capital equipment, which led to the food industry. Through the past almost 40 years I have found it to be one of the most stable industries to work in through all economic situations so continued on.
  1. How long have you been with Bizerba and what has initially attracted you to the company? I recently passed 18 years with Bizerba. Initially it was the company that came to me and while I was initially happy where I was and not really looking around, it turned out to be a great decision to join.
  1. What is the most exciting thing Bizerba is doing for the food industry today from your perspective? Without question it is our focus on the “My Bizerba” products which is a combination of hardware, software and services which is changing the customer experience by offering a full life cycle solution. Our customers are able to maintain the latest technology with the most comprehensive service for the best value.
  1. Drawing from your range of experiences, what inspires you personally and professionally? More than anything I like to win. It is great to see the growth we have achieved and the market share increases but nothing feels better than winning a new customer or order. In this case size really doesn’t always matter as it can be as rewarding or even more so to win a particularly difficult small negotiation as it is to see overall results.
  1. What are you most proud of? My family. In a time when it is common for people of my generation (myself included) to criticize the underachieving millennials, I am proud to see my children work hard and progress in their careers. My father was an immigrant bus driver who ascended to a senior management position through hard work and I like to think that example is what inspires us.
  1. What was the most important thing you learned over the years? Perseverance. I don’t really believe in luck so most of what I have seen us achieve has been due to the determination of our people and being able to continue on through adversity.
  1. What is the best advice you ever received? 80% of success is showing up. No matter how talented you think you are or how much you think your customers love you, nothing replaces working hard and putting the effort into being there.
  1. What is one goal — either personal or professional — that you would like to accomplish during your lifetime? I have an antique grand piano that I purchased and restored about 15 years ago with the goal to become proficient at it. With the current workload and travel schedule it still seems like a distant goal but hoping to at least start in the near future.
  1. What is one piece of technology you can’t live without? Going to have to say my iPhone. First thing I look at in the morning to catch my wake-up emails from Germany, and last thing to see that there are no open issues at night. I tend to get many more emails and texts now than phone calls but make sure I am always accessible to internal and external customers regardless of the day or time.
  1. What is your best advice for young people starting in business? A lot of emphasis seems to be placed on work\life balance, especially by younger people. I believe this is something to aspire to, not demand. We all have to sacrifice our personal time and put in the extra effort to be successful and with success you will be able to better achieve balance in your life.
  1. What keeps you busy in your spare time? I have a small lake property and enjoy water-skiing, snowmobiling, kayaking, skiing and other outdoor activities. I would like to add fishing but my success rate is pretty limited so far, seems to be an attention span issue. I also like to do a lot of the outdoor work around our property but judging by the number of self-inflicted injuries, not always as well as I would like.
  1. In 3 words, how would your employees, friends and family describe you? Ready, Fire, Aim. Not really much to be into the details I tend to want to act quickly and decisively. Luckily I am surrounded by a strong team and a wife who allow me to progress at full speed ahead and have someone to back-fill when needed.
