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

OBJECTIVE

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.

SOLUTION

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.
