The need for new and better food packaging is expanding and with it, the need for new and better food packaging automation. Last year’s Packaging Machinery Market Report projected that the global packaging machinery market will grow by more than 50% over the next five years. In fact, automation is the most impactful trend affecting manufacturing operations today (according to Food Engineering Magazine). Food packaging automation can be used for almost anything including canning, container cleaning, filling, bagging, unpacking, bottling, sealing, check weighing, wrapping, heat sealing, case forming, labelling and palletizing, just to name a few of their many possible functions.

A single metal bit can take a significant bite out of your company’s profits. For example in 2015, Kraft recalled nearly a quarter of a million cases of Mac and Cheese after metal shards were discovered in some boxes. Also in 2015, Unibright Foods recalled nearly 50,000 pounds of prepared meat products after discovering “extraneous metal materials,” and Kellogg recalled 2.8 million boxes of Bite Size Frosted and Unfrosted Mini-Wheats “due to the possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh from a faulty manufacturing part.” Each of these unfortunate incidences highlight the importance of installing a quality food metal detector on your production line.

Roughly 52% of citizens around the globe make purchase decisions partially based on packaging that shows a brand is making a positive environmental and social impact. It makes sense then that packaging products can actually have a pretty big influence on consumer purchasing decisions. Trends come and go when it comes to food packaging materials, and sometimes they can be unpredictable.

Every year, consumers are affected by food products that didn't get thoroughly inspected. Whether it's metal, bacteria, or another type of contaminant, food packaging facilities are responsible for ensuring food products are safe for consumption. While food inspection standards are made to ensure this is done, there are still some misconceptions regarding food inspection.

When it comes to food inspection, efficiency and effectiveness are crucial. This is particularly true when it comes to food products like meat and poultry. The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is in charge of making sure these food products are handled and labeled safely.

With that in mind, this article is going to serve as an overview as to why checkweigher machines are used and what they do.
