Advanced Inspection Capabilities Demonstrated on Live Automated Patty Line at PROCESS EXPO

August 15, 2019

An anticipated highlight of this year’s PROCESS EXPO is a live beef patty production line that will be set up on the show floor, demonstrating the step-by-step innovations and technologies behind making hamburgers. An advanced inspection system from Eagle Production Inspection installed at the end of that line will show how x-ray machines and supporting software can be easily integrated into the patty-making process and ensure the production of high quality, consistent and safe burgers.

At PROCESS EXPO 2019, held Oct. 8-11 at Chicago’s McCormick Place, the Eagle Pack 400 HC machine will be set up at the end of the live line to inspect packaged burger patties. The cost-effective complete x-ray system inspects packages of patties for contaminants while also checking for the desired patty shape and weight, identifying any voids and verifying the number of burgers. The Pack 400 HC, capable of high-speed imaging up to 60 meters a minute, can be used to inspect a range of packaged meat, poultry, dairy and other food products in settings that require daily sanitation of equipment.

Also at this year’s PROCESS EXPO, Eagle will show other solutions for meat and poultry products at Booth #708, including the FA3/M machine. The FA3/M provides inline fat measuring and contaminant detection for fresh, chilled and frozen applications and features a third-generation refinement of Eagle’s DEXA technology.

At both the live automated patty line and at Eagle’s booth, company experts will be on hand to share their technical expertise and help attendees determine solutions to their unique product applications and challenges.
