Ishida is inviting food producers to its Birmingham facility for its Food Safety X-ray Open House event from 4th – 6th July, which will demonstrate how the latest advancements in X-ray inspection technology can help manufacturers to meet even the most rigorous food safety standards.
Preventative measures are key to managing the risk and minimising the threat of foreign body contamination. Today’s inspection technology allows the industry to deliver more advanced detection systems, thus further enhancing food safety measures.
A wide range of quality control systems will be featured in live demonstrations, including the recently launched IX-PD Photon Counting Dual Energy X-ray inspection system and Ishida’s DACS series of checkweighers. Visitors will also be able to bring their own non-allergenic food products for testing.
Industry 4.0 and the value of automation for food businesses will also be key themes at the event with Ishida also showcasing its Sentinel remote monitoring system.
The Open House event follows a successful Interpack for the company, at which it celebrated its 130th anniversary coupled with the launch of its latest traysealer, the QX-500.
“In an environment of increasingly stringent regulations and heightened food safety expectations from consumers, it has never been more important to have capable and reliable quality control systems in place”, said Glen Oxborough, Ishida Europe’s Quality Inspection Control Sales Specialist.
“Product recalls are a consistent concern for food manufacturers, and we hope to demonstrate that - with the right systems in place - this concern can be alleviated”.
For those wishing to attend the doors will open from 10am until 4pm on July 4th and July 5th, with the event on July 6th running from 11am until 3pm.

At the end of June, Ishida is also partnering with Campden BRI to deliver a webinar focused on preventative process design, which will be discussed also during the open house.
