Inspection of canned food for contaminants and defects
Metal cans are one of the world’s most popular methods of preserving food due to their sterility, indestructibility and portability. However the use of steel cans (commonly used for food) and aluminium / tin cans (more typical for beverages) does not guarantee against packaging defects or contaminants.
Detect tiny contaminants including metal
X-ray inspection of canned food can accurately identify small contaminants such as glass, stone, bone and even metal in food cans – often without removing the cans from the cases.
AIS’ high resolution x-ray sensors can detect metal contaminants as small as a 0.4mm wire in a single can or 1.0mm sphere in the case.
Our advanced technology can simultaneously detect contaminants and identify common quality issues in canned food such as under-fill, damaged cans and manufacturing defects.
