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.
Production Line Inspection Equipment – X-Ray
X-Ray food inspection normally comes after the checkweigher and will check items that fail between set criteria. These systems will not miss anything, set to your personal requirements it will detect all foreign objects within a package, Metal, plastic, rubber it will even check that the density and consistency of the product conforms to the set criteria.
Production Line Inspection Equipment – Vision Inspection
The final check at the end of the production line. A new product in the Bizerba portfolio are the vision inspection machines. Thermo inspection system not only check seal edges and the integrity of the seal. It can identify broken seals and reject any packages that may have been compromised.
Furthermore an additional feature of the SealSecure vision inspection system is that it will as follows. Identify any products with incorrect labels, Incorrect sell by dates and bar codes. It will even reject damaged or inferior labels from passing into the packing area.
Also at the end of the line you may also want to look at setting up a platform scale. This will enable you to pack without having to count. When the exact weight for a set amount of product is reached, the load cell will indicate to the line. Enabling a seamless operation for filling to packing.
