Protect your brand—and your profits
Detecting physical contaminants in food, such as metal, glass, stone, plastic and bone is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, especially when the contaminant may be as small as 1 mm in diameter. Our accurate, reliable food inspection equipment, including food metal detectors and X-ray detection systems provide the highest sensitivity so you can find virtually any metallic or non-metallic substance in your packaged food. Our checkweighers provide accurate and reliable in-motion weighing.

With different types of packaging for different types of fruits and vegetables, including metallized film, deciding what kind of technology to use and where in the plant it is needed can be a challenge.
Evolving inspection/detection technology can help both baking and snack food companies get their products to market contamination-free and in the case of multiple-item packs, with all of the promised pieces in place.
Dairy products come in a variety of containers and can be wet, frozen, solid, or powdered. Evolving inspection/detection technology can help dairy product producers get their goods to market contamination-free and in the case of multiple-item packs, with all of the promised pieces in place. Learn where X-ray inspection, metal detection and checkweighing equipment should be used in the dairy industry.
Consumers are buying more frozen foods because they are staying home more and cooking for themselves. Frozen food processors must step up production but still produce food without compromising safety, whether there’s a pandemic or not.
Processing meat products is inherently fraught with risks that present product quality and safety challenges to food processors. Learn how to overcome the metal detection, x-ray inspection, and weighing challenges associated with beef, chicken, pork, and fish that have high product effect and harsh washdown conditions.
The growth and recognition of vegan and vegetarian preferences in the diet has triggered both independent restaurants and mainstream restaurant chains to expand their protein offerings to include plant-based burgers, sausage patties, and other meat-alternative products. Whether food processing companies are supplying their products to restaurant goers or grocery shoppers, the plant-based foods need to reach customers without containing physical contaminants. Learn where X-ray inspection, metal detection and checkweighing equipment should be used in the food processing plant.
