X-ray Inspection of Shredded Cheese Pouches

The Challenge

Shredded cheese pouches can pose difficult hurdles to overcome for cheese processors, many of which cannot be detected by the naked eye.

  • Contaminant detection
  • Weight verification

The Solution

The Eagle™ Pack 240 PRO with its advanced image analysis software, SimulTask™ PRO, performs quality control checks simultaneously and at at high line speeds. The x-ray system can identify shredded cheese pouches that are contaminanted with either glass, metal, stone or plastic and rubber compounds, and reject them from the production line. At the same time, it verifies accurate pouch weight, reducing giveaway and strengthening product yield.
