Bakery X-ray Inspection Systems


Bakery X-ray Inspection Systems

X-ray Inspection for Bread, Cakes, Biscuits, Doughnuts, Crackers, and Pies.

Contamination can occur from human contact or machine failure in a baking process line due to its exposed nature and high speed. Bakery x-ray inspection systems can mitigate this, enabling you to meet rigid health and safety standards, achieve cost efficiencies, and satisfy the quality demands of both consumers and distributers.

Sapphire’s x-ray systems are capable of much more than contaminant detection, they can also improve the product quality of baked goods as detailed below.

Bakery X-ray Applications

Ensure product conformity (e.g. inspect for holes in baked bread)
Confirm product completeness (e.g. check the jam filling is correct in doughnuts)
Measure product mass to ensure it meets weight requirements
Ensure product uniformity (e.g. check seed distribution is even on bread)
Identify foreign objects such as metal, bone, glass, certain plastics and other items

Why Choose X-ray Over Metal Detection for Baked Goods?

An x-ray inspection system offers more sophistication than a metal detector. Multiple inspections can be combined and conducted by one machine and end-of-line inspection is possible once baked goods are packaged in metal or foil packaging.
