Reduce False Reject Rates with X-ray Inspection

The Challenge

Schuman Cheese Inc. is the U.S. hard Italian cheese leader with over 30 percent of the U.S. market, processing more than 80 million pounds a year at its two state-of-the-art facilities. It offers a full spectrum of cheese including grated, shredded, shaved, sliced and cut for customers’ use before being packaged in bags, cups, PET Jars and wedges. Because their metal detectors caused a high number of false rejects which slowed the production line and reduced profits, the company looked to replace their metal detectors with x-ray inspection systems. 

The Solution 

Schuman Cheese has been extremely happy for the past eight years after having installed two Eagle™ Pack 430 PRO machines in their Fairfield, New Jersey headquarters. The x-ray systems are designed to inspect mid-sized packaged products to detect and reject glass, metal fragments, mineral stone, calcified bone and some plastic and rubber compounds, while simultaneously counting components and performing accurate zoned weight checks. Schuman Cheese chose to upgrade their x-ray systems with SimulTask™ PRO, a propriety image analysis software that offers additional benefits such as fully-customizable user interface, statistics and reports to aid with compliance needs, and the ability for dynamic product switching of multiple products on multiple lines.
