Primary Food Packaging Solutions

  1. Clear, thermoformed plastic containers, trays and clamshells are used to package a wide variety of products. Packagers must be able to detect the leading edge.

  2. Sensor solutions to detect clear glass jars to be filled with food in a strict sanitary environment where frequent, high-pressure washdowns and IP69K ratings.

  3. Learn how the Q4X detects clear plastic trays at hopper and filling station in the food industry.

  4. Barcodes used to track packaged produce through the supply chain contain important product information that must be verified at multiple points during packaging. An ABR 3000 barcode reader ensures that the barcode on each package is present and correct.

  5. Learn how the Q4X detects dark colored trays at hopper and filling station in the food industry.

  6. The EZ-BEAM Q25 retroreflective sensor is ideal for this application. It emits a high-powered beam that will reliably detect any dark object that passes over the scale. If clear objects are to be detected, a Q25 polarized retroreflective model is used. With its IP69K-rated housing, the Q25 is designed to withstand the harsh washdowns required in food applications. Setup is easy; the Q25 has no adjustments.

  7. Banner Engineering's QM26 washdown sensor detects dark plastic food trays as they approach a checkweigh machine that confirms the correct weight of the filled trays.

  8. After food trays have been filled they need to be properly sealed and packaged with a layer of clear film. Installing a VSM series sensor in a heat sealer accurately monitors the level of film material remaining on a roll.
