Thorough inspection of cheese and its packaging for ensured product quality and production optimization.
Making the perfect cheese is an art. It is all about creating the same taste, texture and appearance in every cheese, which requires vast knowledge and experience as the production process is long and complex.
Cheese producers know that the slightest difference matters. Consumers want the cheese experience they value every time. TriVision's vision inspection helps cheese producers to overcome typical challenges in the production to get consistency in all cheese products.
Various errors can occur when cheese products are packed. Food might get stuck in the seal or weldings errors may occur, both causing leakages. Incorrect labels may also be applied or printer issues may result in unreadable date markings.
Package seals, labels, date markings, artwork and barcodes can be validated reliably and efficiently by our vision solutions. And the result is perfect appearance, optimal shelf life and correct information for ensured food safety.
Validating package seals ensures that packed cheese products remain attractive, tasty, fresh and safe to ingest during its shelf life. Cheese can get stuck in the seal or welding errors can cause leakages in package seals and ruin the package's modified atmosphere preserving the cheese. Vision-based seal inspection validates the seal integrity of all packages in cheese production lines and rejects all packages with contaminations or welding errors.
Plastic parts stuck in the surface of cheese blocks after the foil cut process is a well-known challenge for cheese producers. To detect these flaws, many producers use manual inspection, which requires a significantly reduction of the conveyor speed. However, detecting plastic in cheese surfaces still remains challenging for the human eye, and flaws being overlooked are likely to happen.
With tailored vision solutions for reliable, high-speed inspection, TriVision enables cheese producers to operate efficiently while making sure that all approved cheese blocks contain no plastic parts in the surface.
Another common challenge in cheese productions is detecting possible mold spots in cheese blocks. Mold may occur e.g. if oxygen is present below the plastic, if moisture occurs or if the temperature is too high, which can cause bacteria to grow during the cheese's maturing time.
Through a reliable inspection before the plastic cut process, cheese producers avoid large costs related to mold issues. Mold spores spread in a production facility typically cause significant waste and downtime as extensive cleaning is required. Additionally, recalls and sales declines related to mold issues are also avoided.
