Ishida set for manufacturers x-ray food safety open day events

Ishida is set to invite food producers including confectionery and snacks manufacturers to its Birmingham facility for a Food Safety X-ray Open House event demonstrating advancements in the segment.

The sessions, which will take place between 4-6 July will showcase how developments in the inspection technology can aid businesses in meeting stringent food safety standards, which remain critical to operations within the sector.

Among core areas for discussion are Industry 4.0 and the value of automation for businesses will also be key themes at the event with Ishida also showcasing its Sentinel remote monitoring system.

As the company noted, preventative measures are key to managing the risk and minimising the threat of foreign body contamination. Today’s inspection technology allows the industry to deliver more advanced detection systems, thus further enhancing food safety measures.

A wide range of quality control systems will be featured in live demonstrations, including the recently launched IX-PD Photon Counting Dual Energy X-ray inspection system and Ishida’s DACS series of checkweighers. Visitors will also be able to bring their own non-allergenic food products for testing.

IThe Open House event follows a successful Interpack for the company, at which it celebrated its 130th anniversary coupled with the launch of its latest traysealer, the QX-500.

“In an environment of increasingly stringent regulations and heightened food safety expectations from consumers, it has never been more important to have capable and reliable quality control systems in place”, said Glen Oxborough, Ishida Europe’s Quality Inspection Control Sales Specialist.

“Product recalls are a consistent concern for food manufacturers, and we hope to demonstrate that – with the right systems in place – this concern can be alleviated”.

For those wishing to attend the doors will open from 10am until 4pm on July 4th and July 5th, with the event on July 6th running from 11am until 3pm.
