The hottest food packaging testing instruments ten

  • Detail

Food packaging testing instruments tend to be highly automated

food safety is closely related to people's life safety. Accordingly, there are higher requirements for food packaging. Food packaging safety inspection is an important part in the process of food production. Higher automation and stronger system reliability have become the general trend of food packaging detection technology

foreign matter detection

foreign matter detection is an indispensable part of the food and beverage packaging process. Complete automation and high reliability are typical features of foreign body detection technology

inspx launched a new scantrac 200x-ray detection system, which is used to detect whether there is foreign matter entering the product packaging, package integrity and confirm the contents. Scantrac200 can provide quite fast detection speed while ensuring detection accuracy and reducing cost. For the food, drinking cement hydrolysis, pharmaceutical packaging industry, the detection speed can reach 700 feet per minute, about 2200 pieces. It can check metal, glass fragments, stones, bones, rubber or other foreign matters mixed in various cartons, cans, plastics and glass packages. It can also realize the detection of empty packages or products that are not full and damaged containers. At the same time, scantrac can also provide real-time analysis and detection, and automatically remove unqualified products from the production line

scantrac 200X detection system can effectively detect a variety of foreign matters in the package

the machine is equipped with a low-energy X-ray system and advanced image processing software, which can detect tiny dirt. The unique design can also effectively reduce the installation cost of the system. The unique image processing system does not need the timing belt necessary for other X-ray systems. The compact test system can be easily installed above the belt, reducing the cost of factory transformation. This economical and high-performance packaging testing equipment can meet the needs of factories of different sizes

according to the needs of different packaged products, the X-ray intensity only needs to be adjusted through program settings, which can be done in a few seconds. The whole system has the functions of diagnosis setting and automatic identification. It can set the menu step by step and realize remote monitoring. Inexperienced operators can realize normal detection after simple training

designing special detection systems for different packages is also one of the development trends. For example, Krones launched the rotocheck system for beer packaging, which is used for the detection of glass slag

krones' newly launched rotocheck is a set of rotary whole bottle detection system, which can detect glass fragments as small as 0.5mm in length and directly eliminate problematic bottles. Rotocheck is designed for production lines that fill 40000 to 72000 bottles per hour

krones' first rotocheck system was put into use in a brewery in 2004, with a production line speed of 60000 bottles/hour. Since the beginning of 2004, it has been operating continuously with a capacity of 60000 bottles/hour. In the brewery, the machine detects whether an opaque beer filled with brown, thick walled recycling bottles has glass residue, and some bottles have deep grinding marks. The result of enhancing the stability of the product fully meets the standard: the recognition rate of 0.5mm glass slag is 90%, and the error rejection rate is less than 0.05%; For completely transparent bottles, the detection reliability is higher

leak detection technology

in order to avoid empty packages, packaging dissatisfaction or packaging leakage in the production process, it is usually necessary to carry out packaging integrity testing

INTERTECH Development Corporation (IDC) launched two leak detection production lines, equipped with automatic identification and system confirmation functions, which are mainly used for liquid food packaging inspection. As the first supplier of leak detection equipment with this function, IDC's new m1075 calval -03 and -04 models no longer need manual inspection, zeroing and scanning or manual adjustment of test parameters in the whole production process, and are completely completed by the instrument automatically. The two new instruments can be tested according to customers' needs, and can also run automatically according to programming

the solid-state calval technology of the machine can reduce the wear of pneumatic valves or other moving parts that may occur in the pneumatic system, easy to produce air gaps and other problems, and improve the reliability of the system. Another advantage of calval is that it can maintain the same stable test conditions as the sample test when applied in large quantities

m-1075 calval-03 is equipped with IDC patented mass flow sensing technology, which is mainly used for upstream testing, ranging from 0 00sccm (standard liter/minute). Calval-04 is mainly used for the downstream test of small leakage, and the test range is from 0 25sccm。 Both models have temperature compensation function. The range of test pressure is bar, and it can provide transmission repeatability and accuracy of 0.05% FSD

calval system can ensure the good consistency between large-scale leak detection and a small number of tests

there is a vacuum fluorescent display on the front panel of the device to report test parameters, dynamically display test results and the final acceptance/rejection status. The status is automatically displayed with different identifications, without the operator's judgment

adaptive detection

in order to meet the future market demand, GF SRL has developed a detection system based on "neuron control technology" for packaging process detection

this detection system based on "neural network software" can meet the detection needs of different shapes, different operating parameters and different working conditions, fully improve the sensitivity of the control system and reduce the error rate. Neuron network is a distributed processing system composed of the most basic digital units (neurons). The system has the functions of self-learning, self adaptation, self storage and self diagnosis. Through self-learning and self adaptation, it has the ability to acquire "knowledge" from the outside, and "knowledge" is stored as network parameters. Through the identification and diagnosis of relevant parameters and shapes, the system detection is realized. It can significantly reduce the error rate and has excellent equipment sensitivity. The setting of the testing instrument is very simple. Today, this innovative detection system has been applied to the company's lynx and AV systems

material testing

paper and plastic are the two most important packaging materials in the packaging industry, and the sum of the two accounts for about 98% of the packaging market. As one of the most important components of the packaging industry, food packaging is also the main application field of paper packaging and plastic packaging. Using qualified paper or packaging materials is an important factor to ensure the safety of food packaging. Therefore, different manufacturers have also launched new testing equipment for packaging material testing

the traditional method of testing the bursting strength of paper is the rolling method, which often takes a lot of time for laboratory personnel. In order to simplify the test process, Lorentzen wettre (L w) company introduced a strength test method equipped with an automatic strip feeding mechanism

it is suitable for a variety of paper strength testing equipment, and the paper feeding is fully automated.

there are standard test methods for the bursting strength test of paper, paperboard and corrugated paperboard. The LW strength tester can not only test the blasting strength, but also test the blasting energy absorption rate (BEA) and the film compensated blasting strength

with this automatic strip feeding structure, all the operators need to do is put the paper sample on the operating platform, lower the feeding device, and then press the start button. The clamping foot is lowered to complete the burst test. Then the sample is released and run to the next test position. The results of several tests only need few operations, and the test results are more reliable

the test results are displayed on an easy to read display. The results and statistical information of a single test can be output on the printer, and the results can also be copied to the PC

as a fully automated and idealized test means of the paper test laboratory, LW also launched an autoline300, which is an equipment test equipment for its impact experiment. This equipment can complete almost all kinds of tests, report preparation, data archiving, and requires little operation intervention
