Retailer codes of practice that increasingly specify a preference for x-ray contaminant detection technology and on-going business growth has driven cake and dessert producer, Mathiesons, to install one of Loma Systems latest generation X5 Spacesaver x-ray models. This high performance machine was launched by the leading global manufacturer of food industry checkweighers, metal detectors and x-ray inspection equipment less than 12 months ago.

Mathiesons operates six production lines at its BRC accredited production facility in the heart of Scotland. The new X5 Spacesaver, which is inspecting fresh cream products for contaminants at speeds up to 1500 packs per hour, complements two Loma metal detectors already in use at the company’s plant.

Nick Wills, Managing Director at Mathiesons comments: “The investment in the X5 Spacesaver follows on from the successful installation of two Loma metal detectors several years ago. As a food business, we are committed to utilising the best production equipment on the market and we felt that this new x-ray model met our brief perfectly. It is also important that we harness technology that is future proof and keeps up with changing BRC standards and retailer codes of practice.”
