Production Line Inspection Equipment

Production Line Inspection Equipment checking every step of the way. From formulation to packing and dispatch. Normally used after filling, the products will go through a number of checks to guarantee delivery of perfect goods every time.

Production Line Inspection Equipment – Checkweighers

Initially after filling, the products will pass through a dynamic checkweigher, this will automatically detect and reject over filled or under filled packages. Too many over fills can greatly effect profit margins, too many under fills and you risk falling fowl to retail fines.

Production Line Inspection Equipment – Metal Detectors

A metal inspection system is common place on food production lines. Identifying any product that has been exposed to the elements and any metal contaminated products rejected. However due to some complex packaging and extremely high standards set by the UK retail food industry,  X-Ray Food inspection systems are now the preferred inspection system at this point in the production line.

Food Contaminant Detection

Food Contaminant Detection, or inspection systems. Due to the amount of recent food product recalls. Food inspection systems and food traceability software are now a standard requirement in all areas from food production to food distribution.

Use the very latest technology in your food production line and there will be no need to worry about product recalls. Incorrectly programmed systems will lend them selves to failure. Rely on Bizerba to set up your production lines to ensure that it is done correctly and compliantly.

What Food Contaminant Detection is right for me?

A food detection system or inspection system. There are three main areas to look at. X-Ray Food machines. Vision inspection systems and Metal detectors. Using a combination of these will guarantee that all the products are perfect when they leave your premises.

However, you will not always need to incorporate all three inspection systems. Food containment detection can normally be done with only one system. Depending on the plant the food produced and the contamination risks within the plant.

One of the newest inspection systems Bizerba has developed is the new SealSecure inspection system. Used in conjunction with a checkweigher, the vision inspection system will detect and reject all and any packages that are not the correct weight. Over fill or under fill. Labelling incorrectly placed or damaged production items.

Watch the SealSecure Packaging Inspection video.

Watch food contaminant detection in progress. 

Used in conjunction with a checkweigher the vision system will identify any inferior products, used inline with a food x-ray system or metal detector. This will ensure nothing will slip through the net during production.

Furthermore, consider using Bizerba BRAIN software. Guaranteeing a production line that is running as efficiently as possible. The software can be adapted to your individual requirements and can also be used in conjunction with existing software from third parties.

Ready Meal Inspection Systems

Ready Meal Inspection Systems from Bizerba. From Dynamic checkweighers with metal detectors to vision inspection systems and x-ray food systems.  We currently supply the majority of ready meal and pre-packaged food suppliers across the world.

Ready Meal Inspection Systems – Checkweighers

Firstly the first line of defence will be the dynamic checkweigher checking the weight for every package. Rejecting any under or over filled packages. Allowing production to avoid costly returns. At all times ensuring that the product give away either reduced to a minimum or eliminated.

In addition dynamic checkweighers come with integrated x-ray food systems. The combination is ideal for high speed high IP protection systems. Capitalising on space where floor areas are small.

Ready Meal Inspection Systems – Metal Detection

Also consider the consequences if metal were to contaminate one package. This will initiate a recall for an entire product line. Avoid costly product recalls by installing an x-ray system. Alternatively the more cost effective solution would be to install a food metal detector. Multiple variants in the Bizerba range depending on the speed and IP protection required.

Ready Meal Inspection Systems – Vision

Finally, an area that is generally overlooked is the final visual check. This can now be automated with vision inspection systems. Consider the LabelSecure vision inspection system for high IP protection areas. Checking packages from above and below. Label positioning and the correct label type.

Furthermore you may require a higher speed system. Consider the SealSecure vision inspection system. Also checking above and below. Lower IP protection ready meal inspection systems. With belt speeds of over 110 meters per minute.

Ready Meal Inspection Systems – Software

Consider the vast array of software systems available. The Brain2 Industrial software covers everything from Formulation, Safety, Data Capture and Compliance.
