A Sweet Achievement in Detecting Glass in Glass Contamination – MENZ&GASSER relies on BIOMETiC Mito

BIOMETiC Mito provides MENZ&GASSER with the best glass-in-glass detection performance in multipacks

As a leading company in jam production and packaging, MENZ&GASSER has applied innovative technologies and products for over 80 years. This is to guarantee its customers maximum food product safety and added value.

MENZ&GASSER needed “something more than the X-ray devices, the metal detectors, the normal technology we have in all the plants,” explains Ivano Zottele, Product Director at MENZ&GASSER.

To meet even the highest food safety and quality standards, MENZ&GASSER relied on BIOMETiC Mito – the only production line tomograph that analyzes food in real-time.

what advantages does mito 3D tomography offers over conventional 2D x-ray technology?

BIOMETiC Mito guarantees the best performance of glass-in-glass detection through its 3D product analysis. With the experience gained from our customers, computed tomography (CT) is the only, most effective, and versatile inspection method that works even on multipacks.

For BIOMETiC, seeing glass chips, regardless of their shape and orientation, is a starting point, not an endpoint. The real 3D vision of BIOMETiC Mito overcomes the convexity problem of the jars’ bottom, which conventional 2D systems cannot analyze safely. In fact, the detection of very fine contaminants is not adversely affected by jar thickness or density. This allows a reduction in false rejects with a significant increase in production line efficiency in terms of food safety.

The vast possibility of customizing the quality defects and contaminants that Mito detects based on the inspection needs of the customer allows it to be integrated into existing production lines. This is not only for jam and yogurt manufacturers, like LATTERIA VIPITENO; but also for the most diverse food sectors, e.g. for manufacturers of the bakery sector. Mito can detect even the most difficult defects. Just to name a few: oversized air bubbles or abnormal or improperly distributed total honeycombing.

Suppose the need arises to detect other quality defects or contaminants. The same Mito installed at your facility can be easily updated via software to see and solve these new issues.
