The SIDEMEKI system is designed for production lines where the food is in packages that are taller than wider, such as bottles, cartons, containers and cans. Ensuring smooth production flow is essential with these packaging types setting a higher expectation for the design of the inspection equipment.
That’s why SIDEMEKI is completely lead curtain-free X-ray system, equipped with secure product guides ensuring the food packages transfer effortlessly through the system. SIDEMEKI is also equipped with various sensors that monitor the system and its functionalities, making it a truly self-monitoring Critical Control Point.
SIDEMEKI is the only quality control solution offering food producers a choice to select one or two X-ray generators based on the exact need for the product inspection. With tall products, this means that the system always has the needed inspection accuracy necessary for foreign object detection and specific quality functions, e.g. headspace, fill level, and cap inspection.
The system is designed for consumer-packaged tall food products, and it can be seamlessly integrated into any production line enabling the full benefits of primary packaging inspection:
- More Accurate Foreign Object Detection – detect smaller contaminants more accurately by inspecting single packages, where there is less density variations within the product compared to inspecting larger boxes with multiple products inside.
- Overall Food Quality Control – enhancing the overall product quality by removing lacking, missing or broken food products from the production helps to build stronger brand image and guarantees consumer satisfaction.
- Pack-for-Pack Traceability – safeguards food producers by providing X-ray images of each inspected product within a certain production batch.
- Less Waste – if a contamination is detected, the system rejects a single package instead of a box with multiple products inside. This creates less waste and supports ecological production.
