Example: Food industry
Foreign objects can show up in food products and, to a certain extent, these may be natural characteristics of the product. Nut shells or pits, for example:
A cherry pit in a jar of jam is a classic that can almost be expected – not nice and not entirely without danger. However, a tiny rock that manages to make its way from the field into the muesli or even sharp-edged metal splinters, invisibly concealed in a frozen food product are direct health hazards. Hazards that every manufacturer of food products is well aware of.
IMS X-ray inspection systems on the production line can prevent this risk early on, whatever the product consistency. They effectively detect foreign objects to less than 0.5 mm diameter. How the inspection is integrated into the production flows depends on the particular production situation.
The following items can be detected with particular reliability:
Depending on the product composition, the following foreign objects can also be detected:
How can you avoid contamination of materials and products by foreign objects?
When manufacturing insulators or cabling, even the most minute contamination undetected during manufacture can later cause severe damage under full load. Whether air inclusions or metal abrasion from the CNC machine, the advanced and flexible image processing software from IMS can identify expected flaws based on rules, and it can also identify unforeseeable deviations from the target appearance.
The following occurrences can be detected:
