BAKERY X-RAY INSPECTION -
BISCUITS & CAKES QUALITY CONTROL
X-ray technology has been used for years for the bakery X-ray inspection quality control of products such as bisquits and cakes. Our new and innovative X-ray systems push the detection level to the real need – to detect what is critical for the consumer.
THE VALUE OF LOW-ENERGY X-RAY TECHNOLOGY:
- reducing loss and making best use of raw materials
- better product classification and a better product price
- avoiding customer complaints
- a robust, reliable, and safe inspection technology
- hygienic design guidelines
Modern manufacturing lines require a strict quality control of the correct distribution, dimensions, and mass of the dough, in addition to e.g. contamination inspection. A high contrast, process and product X-ray quality control imaging online system enables the fast and reliable quality control before the baking process.
This leads to immediate action-taking when there are issues with the performance of the dosage system. Consequently, downtime is largely eliminated and discard of non-conforming products is minimized.
The InnospeXion technology enables the compactness and robustness required to incorporate a process and product X-ray quality control system during the forming process.
However, the X-ray technology also is applied to inspect the baked products and to secure that the products are packaged correctly, with the correct, uncontaminated, and un-damaged amounts in the package. This also gives additional value to the product and safeguards a minimum of recalls and customer complaints.
