Cheese Manufacturer Installs X-Ray And Metal Detection Technologies To Assure Quality

To assure product quality and food safety, one of the world’s leading cheese manufacturers recently turned to X-Ray inspection. The company installed an X-Ray system for their bulk packaging line and twelve metal detectors for all of their other cheese manufacturing lines.

“On the bulk packaging line, we hot-fill flavored spreadable cream cheeses into three-pound and five-pound containers,” explains the cheese manufacturer’s director of quality. “The SAFELINE X-ray system is ideal for this application since the density and variable consistency of the product make it a challenge for most metal detectors.”
