Increasing production output in the food industry demand high product quality and require 100 % traceability of all raw materials and other ingredients. Therefore, new measurement and analytical methods are needed, which guarantee uninterrupted product analysis in the manufacturing process. The aim is to achieve consistent product quality while ensuring the whole manufacturing process is fully documented.
The ZEISS ARMOR measurement probe in combination with the spectrometer system MCS 611 is used for incoming goods inspections, production preparation, product manufacture (mixing processes etc.) and final product inspection. This system, with NIR-technology, measures the quality of ingredients and parameters lsuch as, fat, protein, water, sugar and acid in real-time. It analyzes the material at the beginning of the production chain or during the preproduction stage – when it is still possible to exert a direct influence on the final quality.
