Reliable inspection of canned food to detect contaminants and manufacturing faults

X-ray inspection of canned food and contaminant

The process of preserving food in metal cans has existed since the early 19th-century and is now one of the world’s most popular food packaging methods.

AIS’ canned food inspection service is highly cost-effective to help manufacturers achieve regulatory compliance as well as manage a potential recall crisis.

Routine inspection to ensure food quality

AIS’ advanced x-ray inspection technology can accurately identify small contaminants such as glass, bone and even metal in canned food – without removing the cans from the cases.

We can deliver a higher level of detection than your on-line equipment with high resolution x-ray sensors, able to find metal fragments as small as a 0.4mm wire in a single can.

We can simultaneously identify common quality issues such as under-fill, damaged cans and manufacturing faults.
