Established in 1872, Mathiesons manufactures a wide range of cakes and desserts for local and UK-wide retailers. The industry is changing, and retailers are increasingly specifying a preference for x-ray contaminant detection technology.
The new X5 Spacesaver, which is inspecting fresh cream products for contaminants at speeds up to 1500 packs per hour, complements two Loma metal detectors already in use at the company’s plant. The new system boasts 25% improved detection performance, 20% smaller footprint than similar machines and ultra-hygienic design for quick clean and low maintenance and serviceability.
“As a food business, we are committed to utilising the best production equipment on the market and we felt that this new x-ray model met our brief perfectly. Space is always at a premium so the X5 Spacesaver’s compact, slimline size is a big advantage. It also has a very hygienic design including sloping shoulders so food particles do not gather in the crevices and easy access for efficient strip down, cleaning and maintenance.” Nick Wills, managing director at Mathiesons, said.
Once again, amazing x-ray technology is put to use in areas other than healthcare! Read the full article here.
