QUALITY STANDS PROUD FOR UFP WITH ISHIDA X-RAY/CHECKWEIGHER COMBINATION
An Ishida X-ray inspection system and checkweigher combination has played a key role in enabling one of the UK’s leading contract packing companies to implement a new packaging solution for a major customer. Universal Flexible Packaging, based in Leicester, UK, is a long-term partner of leading Asian-inspired food brand Itsu. Itsu wanted to reduce the amount of packaging for its premium noodle cup range with a new cup and foil sealed lid. However, this meant quality checks using traditional metal detectors would not be possible, and for a filling and packing system where the majority of the equipment is built of stainless steel, X-ray provided the best solution for both brand and consumer protection.
