Across the consumer goods industry, the future depends on manufacturers taking control of both quality and product safety issues, says Eagle product inspection.

The company will be showcasing its RMI 400 inspection system for the poultry industry; FA3/M inline fat measurement and contaminant detection for meat; PACK 240x-ray for inline contaminant detection in packaged goods; Tall XSDV with conveyor for contaminants in rigid containers such as cans, bottles and jars at Interpack in Dusseldorf, Germany this week (May 4-10).

Investment in R&D

Christy Draus, marketing manager, Eagle Product Inspection, told ConfectioneryNews, today’s consumers are not prepared to let quality and safety issues go unreported and any failure could be circulated via social media outlets in a matter of minutes.

The cost of a product recall can have devastating effects, both in the short and long terms, and this continues to be a key area of focus for brands and retailers alike.

Some larger retailers are now insisting on x-ray systems as part of a supplier’s product inspection program, as they are aware of the high level of contaminant detection capability for materials such as metal, mineral stone, calcified bone, glass and some high density rubber and plastic compounds​,” she said.

Investment in research and development will continue to be a vital part of our business and our systems and accompanying software will become ever more advanced as challenges are identified and overcome​.”

Seal integrity and fill levels

The Eagle Product Inspection, based in Tampa, Florida, evaluates finished products for contaminants such as metal, glass, stone and bone and analyze the fat content of meat, count components, check seal integrity, and measure mass and assess fill levels.

Interpack allows us to interact directly with our customers, and potential customers, and to demonstrate the benefits of x-ray technology in real time​,” added Draus.

For those that have not used x-ray in the past, it can be seen to be a complicated area to get to grips with. By talking directly to one of our experts on the stand, this myth can be put to rest via live demonstrations and accurate data, leaving visitors with a clear vision of the benefits of x-ray over competitor technologies​.”
