Food Inspection

The media already published various scandals that may result from neglected quality controls and poor process monitoring. The foodstuffs to be analyzed (whether liquids, powders, legumes, fruits, vegetables, coffee beans, grains, etc.) can be checked without contact. Milled products (such as flour) are the basis for many more products in the food industry. They are important basic ingredients for pasta, baked goods and confectionery (such as bars, cereals, cornflakes, etc.). Therefore, it is even more important to examine the goods as early as possible for possible damage and defects.

During production, the products undergo several checks, quality controls and security checks. In process analysis, parameters (such as moisture content and purity) play an important role. In order to maintain the desired characteristics at the end of the value chain and to ensure food safety, it is important to control regularly the quality during the production processes. LuxFlux has developed a hyperspectral camera system that enhances food safety and enables customers to conduct sustainable process analysis.
Process analysis means the analysis of procedures and processes, for example, to identify existing defects or weaknesses in the product line. Following this, the production process can be optimized. Our software supports the work process by analyzing the goods in real-time, classifying them by properties, and providing information (for example, good or bad) via a protocol.

In contrast to common samples, which in turn require higher costs and more time, LuxFlux offers a suitable alternative. We rely on hyperspectral technologies that enable complete, fast and non-contact measurement in the process. Due to the optical measuring method, there is no danger in the checking process. The quality of the objects to be examined is protected.

This method enables more efficient work in many industrial sectors. By optimizing the analysis procedure, a particularly high quality standard is ensured. Ultimately, it facilitates the customer’s buying decision while protecting the consumer and enhancing the reputation of their own brand.
