Is That a Robot Packing the Food?

By Food and Beverages | Tuesday, July 09, 2019

Food packaging plays a significant role in keeping edibles safe, therefore; it continues to remain the centre of the supply chain concern among professionals and distributors. To ensure the safety of the product, package delivery systems complete the processes through the supply chain and adhere to standards and specs during the entire chain, from the foundation to store.

FREMONT, CA: Product inspection technology enhances food safety while improving efficiency and helps the manufacturers to keep the cost in alignment with capabilities contributing to sustained growth in the expertise.

It is necessary for food manufacturers today to inspect every item on their lines as verification and detection solutions deliver more comprehensive and precise observations. The inspection equipment lets manufacturers identify multiple irregularities with greater precision and speed, and provides opportunities for cost savings. In the initial stage of the supply chain, processors work to reduce waste collected from a defective product. All through the line, the solutions are structured to minimize downtime stemming from stoppages and fixes required in the event of any malfunction. Toward the end of the line, brands tend to avoid damaging their reputation by lowering or preventing the risk of recalls.

X-ray inspection technologies include sensors capable of detecting ultra-small and nonmetallic contaminants, including bones, and help the food industry in identifying impurities during manufacturing. Advanced X-ray systems generate higher quality images and can find noxious waste within products with overlapping pieces, like frozen vegetables, fries, or chicken nuggets. The inspection equipment has turned more sensitive and can supply a broader range of information; also, the latest inspection and detection machinery detects count, missing or broken items, figure, and position.

Robots in Packaging:

To adhere to health and safety regulations, robots were burdened with restrictions in the food and beverage industry and limited to certain tertiary and some secondary packaging tasks. Previously, robots were serving palletizing functions, the OEMs then developed robots with a high protection class appropriate for handling unpacked goods and creating new opportunities for the direct and indirect handling of foods.

Food safety is indispensable when it comes to protecting consumer health; besides, the mixture of vision systems and developments in AI and deep learning is creating opportunities to improve the quality control automation of products.

The incorporation of machines, for example, programmable logic controllers, servo motors, and computers result in an increase in prices including increased flexibility and superior safety functions, real-time monitoring, machine vision inspection, data collection, and machine-to-machine communication.
