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

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

As a leading company in the production and packaging of jams, MENZ&GASSER has applied innovative technologies and products for over 80 years 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 so on BIOMETiC Mito, the only production line tomograph that scans food.

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: To date, with the experience gained from our customers, computed tomography (CT) is the only, most effective, and versatile inspection method that can work even on multipacks.

Seeing glass chips regardless of their shape and orientation for BIOMETiC is a starting point, not an endpoint: The true 3D vision of BIOMETiC Mito overcomes the problem of convexity of the bottom of jars that precludes vision to conventional 2D systems. Indeed, 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 Mito to be adapted and integrated into existing production lines not only of jam and yogurt manufacturers, like at LATTERIA VIPITENO, but also into the ones of the most diverse food sectors such as the bakery sector. Mito can detect even the most difficult defects, such as oversized air bubbles or abnormal or improperly distributed total honeycombing, to name a few.

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.
