Video: How X-ray is improving the use of beef trimmings at Danish Crown
A new video
from FOSS shows how a modern Danish Crown meat plant in Denmark is making good
use of in-line X-ray analysis to sort beef trimmings while also checking for foreign
A FOSS MeatMasterII X-ray analyser is
placed just after the cutting and deboning operation to analyse boxes of
trimmings according to fat content and weight. Foreign objects such as pieces
of bone are spotted at the same time. If an object is spotted it signals that
the box in question should be pushed out of the line for inspection.
The cleared boxes move on to an automatic
sorting system where the information about fat and weight is used by to build
bins of trim according to customer requirements.
