1. WHAT IS THE UHD TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED BY MULTISCAN TECHNOLOGIES?

The Ultra High Definition (UHD) technology developed by Multiscan Technologies inspects products with high resolution X-rays that integrate deep learning artificial intelligence models. This, together with the development of specific software, allows the detection of very small foreign bodies that are difficult to see even for the human eye.

2. WHAT FOREIGN BODIES CAN BE DETECTED WITH UHD TECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO MEAT PRODUCT INSPECTION?

  • Metals of very small dimensions
  • Remains of hypodermic needles
  • Bones with little calcification
  • Glass and ceramic materials
  • Small stones

3. WHAT IMPROVEMENTS IN DETECTION RATES DOES THE MXV-MEAT ACHIEVE WITH UHD TECHNOLOGY?

To check the improvements in meat product inspection with UHD technology we have carried out different tests with the following characteristics:

  • EQUIPMENT USED:
    • MXV-MEAT
    • MXV-MEAT UHD
  • FOREIGN BODIES USED: needles of 1.2/1.4/1.6 mm in diameter and 10 mm in length introduced into the meat.
  • PRODUCTS TESTED in 800 x 400 x 200 mm boxes filled with product to simulate worst case:
    • Bacon
    • Pork jowl
    • Head Pork loin
    • Pork lean
    • Pork trimmings
    • Chuck

  1. WHAT ARE THE CONCLUSIONS?

As can be seen, the effectiveness and efficiency of the inspection of boxed meat products for the detection of hypodermic needles is much higher using UHD technology.

Guaranteeing the final consumer a safe product is a priority for meat producers. The presence of hypodermic needle remnants is a risk that can only be avoided by using high-precision X-ray technology.

The MXV-MEAT UHD from Multiscan Technologies is the best choice for this type of product and for this type of process.
