Reliable solutions for petfood production – Ensuring products are safe and contamination-free has always been the most important premise for the petfood industry. However, new trends in pet food production are forcing manufacturers to be flexible whilst complying with regulations and sustaining supply.
With its broad product portfolio of weighing and inspection solutions, Minebea Intec offers manufacturers the right solution for future-proofing their business. Metal detectors, Vision systems, X-ray inspection equipment as well as software are used at several points in petfood production to exclude contamination by foreign bodies made of metal, stones, plastic or other materials. This starts even before processing, where the basic ingredients are examined for possible contamination. During later processing steps, such as mixing the ingredients, product contamination can be caused by rubbing from containers or machines and finally, packaging is also checked by inspection solutions.
