X-ray Measures Mass & Detects Contaminants
Bad consumer experience can range from having too little in a bag of crisps to your ready meal having not enough mashed potatoes. Manufacturers use checkweighing methods not just to avoid bad consumer experiences but also to minimize product giveaway and maximize profits.
Using x-ray mass measurement technology for checkweighing, x-ray inspection equipment has proved to be the most reliable solution for high speed applications. Products with multi-compartments such as ready meals or a box of chocolate might have the correct overall mass but what if there is too much meat in one compartment and too little potatoes in the other compartment? X-ray systems can measure each individual compartment as well as the overall mass, ensuring the customer is satisfied as well as profits are maximized.
The white paper, ‘Why Using X-ray Systems for Checkweighing is a Smart Choice,’ explains why and how x-ray inspection equipment can be used as inline checkweighers and as an outcome deliver more accurate results in comparison to traditional gravimetric checkweighers, whilst simultaneously ensuring food safety through contaminant detection.
