SliceCheck offers you optical real time control of sliced, unpackaged products. The inspection system checks the top slice of a product stack for geometrical or mechanical damages such as holes, wrinkles or incorrect alignment. Depending on the product SliceCheck checks for fat content, pieces of fat, blood spots or fat streaks. In the case of cooked ham, for example, the device checks for the presence, location and thickness of rind. In raw ham it records slices having a large amount of fat or sinews. SliceCheck detects areas with dark veins. Products not meeting the quality requirements are sorted out after the slicing process.
With an output of up to 100 stacks per minute and per lane and with continuous monitoring and adjustment of parameters in the slicing and forming process productivity is improved. Cookies, donuts or other food can be similarly checked for conformity and appearance and be qualified.
