PPMA 2023: first class detection from Anritsu and Omori
Anritsu Infivis is teaming up with UK partner Omori UK to showcase a brand new best-in-class range of detection equipment – for the first time in the UK – on stand G20 at the PPMA Show (26-28 September, Birmingham NEC).
Centre stage on the Omori stand will be the XR75 DualX+, the latest release in X-ray technology from Anritsu.
DualX+ is a Photon Detector technology, with specific algorithms for fish and poultry. Anritsu says images from the detector are meaningfully sharper, deliver superior detection capabilities and lower false rejection rates. Contaminants on the targets are clearly displayed and identified by the shadows they cast and foreign bodies are more readily identified – even ones that are smaller and thinner in shape, such as tiny fish and poultry bones and fine metal fragments.
Sharing the stand with the DualX+ will be Omori’s own range of eco-friendly packaging, processing and weighing solutions designed for the food, pet food and pharmaceutical sectors. Chris Keenan, sales director at Omori UK, noted the comprehensive range of equipment and services will help businesses of all sizes improve their packaging and processing output.
“At Omori we’re dedicated to meeting the highest quality standards and delivering exceptional performance and the DualX+ couldn’t be a better match to our own solutions, as well as the other Anritsu machines we supply. The costs associated with missing a contaminant in food can be catastrophic in terms of both bottom line and reputation, so this latest X-ray technology from Anritsu plays a vital role in food and pharma industries across the world,” Keenan said.
Anritsu’s highly effective inspection systems – which also include high spec metal detectors – can detect a variety of foreign objects in food, including metal, glass, bone, stone, plastic and cement. Equipment selection and placement depends on inspection objectives. In addition to saving consumers from contaminants, and companies from a potentially disastrous legal recall, the equipment has been designed to reduce power consumption and total cost of ownership.
Michael Stuart, Anritsu’s European sales director, added with “PPMA being the UK’s biggest annual packaging event, it is delighted to be joining Omori at the show to help demonstrate the really significant benefits that UK customers can gain from the latest releases.
“Poultry and fish bones in particular can be miniscule, so any inspection equipment needs the highest sensitivity – and that is what we have delivered with the DualX+. Visitors will see how this latest technology has evolved to eliminate contaminants from the food chain, even when products are non-uniform in size and shape,” Stuart said. “It’s a real game-changer.”
