End Of line Inspection Equipment

End of line inspection equipment by Bizerba. As demands increase, So potentially can problems occur during production. As a supplier to the US retail trade, more and more customers are demanding that you have at least one inspection system or end of line inspection equipment in place.

End Of line Inspection Equipment – Minimum Requirements

Additional inspection systems to be used with your inline checkweigher system is now a must. The minimum requirements now are that you have at least one X-Ray Food machine in place. Metal detectors have in the past been the norm, however they are not always able to identify and reject smaller particles of metal or other foreign debris.

Why not watch the latest video on how an X-Ray inspection system could ensure rejection of any defect products in your line.

End Of line Inspection Equipment – With Vision Inspection

A normal setup on a production line would be to have the filling machine, then the packing or seal machine. Then packages at a rate of 400 units per minute will pass through the dynamic checkweigher, for example the CWE Maxx. Then after checking move on through the X-Ray inspection system, all foreign bodies rejected. This can be a Dual lane inspection system so that the production line keeps up with demand.

Then onto the Vision inspection unit, the new SealSecure Vision inspection system. Or the LabelSecure vision inspection system . Checking packages from above and below. Systems will identify leaks in packages. Broken seals and incorrect or badly positioned labels.

Avoid retail food production fines from the major supermarkets and put into place this basic high speed inspection line. Ensuring a perfect product to your customers every time.

X-Ray Food Inspection

X-Ray food inspection, how safe is it? Airline cabin crew and pilots are exposed more than operators of x-ray food evaluation machines. Facts and this are summarised in a paper a pioneer of merchandise evaluation technologies including inline analysis and x-ray, from the Bizerba Product Inspection team. The business hopes that this paper will relieve any reservations about the security of food also this has been about the safety of operators of machines using an x-ray food inspection machine. The paper, titled “How Safe is the X-ray Inspection of Food? , clarifies the nature of x-ray when compared with a substance that is radioactive, and points out that the degree of radiation used for x-ray food inspection from the food business is low.

The paper explains the nature of x-ray examination equipment structure, which in most cases goes beyond the standards. X-ray evaluation of food was adopted by increasing numbers of food makers due to its efficacy and accuracy in detecting foreign bodies inside food products such as stones and glass. The proof shows that food that’s good before an  x-ray is as good and just as tasty afterwards. Also, operators working with x-ray food inspection or examination systems are protected by laws and by expert equipment design.

 X-Ray Food Inspection- Safety

In conclusion, consumers and traders have nothing to be concerned about. To start with, it’s significant to comprehend the distinction between x-ray and radioactivity. While x-ray is a form of electromagnetic radiation, they’re electrically generated, and may be switched on and off. In every day activity, every person on Earth is subjected to several forms of radiation, known as background radiation. The International System of Units for radiation dose is that the Sievert, however occupational exposure levels are usually so low that millisieverts and microsieverts are generally utilised. The average human receives about 2, 400 Sv of background radiation in a year, that generally far exceeds that of the radiation exposure received from an x-ray examination system in the food industry.

X-Ray Food Inspection – Normal exposure

In comparison, pilots and cabin crew, who spend more time in altitude, are subjected to greater levels of cosmic radiation, as there’s less of  the Earth’s atmosphere to filter it out when flying, together with frequent flyers absorbing around 4, 400 Sv annually. X-ray food inspection doesn’t cause the meals to become radioactive, just as an individual doesn’t become radioactive after having a chest x-ray.

Checkweighing With X-Ray Inspection

Checkweighing with x-ray inspection. Now more common than ever food production facilities are turning to x-ray food inspection systems. As oppose to the classic metal detection systems of the past.

Checkweighing With X-Ray Inspection – Why?

Even though metal detection still has a valuable place in the inspection arena checkweighing with x-ray inspection is now becoming the norm due to the high demands that retailers place on the testing that has to take place before it reaches the shelves.

Furthermore used with an inline checkweigher and a vision inspection system. Every single anomaly, containment and irregularity automatically rejected by the system. Continued irregular packages will cause a system shut down and an alarm will sound so that a physical check can be made. Identifying the problem and avoiding waste. Recalls eliminated  every package  inspected without fail. This process reduces costly waste and can contribute to the overall yield produced.

Checkweighing With X-Ray Inspection & Vision!

In addition as mentioned another inspection system that is ever more popular are the vision inspection systems. Checking packages from above and below. Each package has an image taken and archived for future reference. Every package shape recorded and monitored. At all times offending items will be rejected with pushers or by pneumatic air.

The ultimate production line would in an ideal world consist of the following set up. Checkweighing, Metal detection system. X-Ray inspection systems then a vision inspection system. This gives 100% visibility on every product that passes through the system. Every offending package rejected, recorded and tracked. By using all four inspection systems you guarantee the elimination of costly product recalls or supermarket fines for inferior products.
