Incorrectly labelled products, incorrectly sealed packing, non-readable barcodes – there is a whole host of challenges to be overcome in food production. If defective products make it onto the supermarket shelves it can lead to a loss of reputation and a reduction in sales.
The ThermoSecure L inspection system finds these products in advance and removes them from production. A high resolution camera with data transfer over the GigE interface automatically adjusts to the products and performs a 360 degree scan of them. As part of the process, the system verifies best before dates, prices, notices, product description and the readability of the company logo. The system also recognises 1D and 2D bar codes. When faulty labelling is detected, pushers or blast nozzles eliminate the product.
Quality without compromises
The ThermoSecure L inspection system not only checks the labelling but, using a special, patented process, also ensures that the packaging is fully sealed. Incorrectly sealed modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) can be identified and removed soon after sealing. The ThermoSecure L inspection system therefore offers comprehensive quality control.
