Sesotec at interpack 2023 – Foreign Body Management All Along the Line

Hardware and software solutions for compliance, profitability and resource conservation in the food industry

With the message “Food Safety is our Passion. Anytime and Anywhere”, Sesotec GmbH will be presenting intelligent and innovative product inspection technologies and services for the food industry at Stand C44 in Hall 11 at interpack in Düsseldorf from May 4 to 10. To ensure profitability, resource conservation and compliance with guidelines, the detection and separation of metals, contaminants and quality defects is critical – not only end of line, but along the entire production line. Sesotec experts are available to answer questions from food producers and processors about hardware and software solutions as well as new service offerings. Production managers, quality managers, and top management will experience how Sesotec’s passion results in customer-oriented solutions for higher profitability and safety of their production processes.

Sesotec Highlights: Hardware and software solutions along the line
The RAYCON D+ HX high-end X-ray inspection system features the highest detection accuracy, which significantly exceeds the requirements of food regulations. The RAYCON EX 1 X-ray inspection system is a solution that offers maximum performance and ease of use at a moderate price. As a special trade show highlight, a live setup demonstrates how, with high throughput rates of 1000 pieces per minute, X-ray technology still ensures the highest detection accuracy.

The VARICON+ D metal detection system is equipped with the INTUITY THiNK metal detector. This technology is based on artificial intelligence and is predestined for difficult applications, such as meat products with high intrinsic conductivity. INTUITY THiNK makes it possible to almost completely suppress the product effect and achieve extremely high sensitivities. At the same time, false triggering is avoided and food losses are minimized. The other conveyor belt solution VARICON+ GLS MF works with multi-frequency technology and is the standard model for inspecting piece and bulk goods on a conveyor belt with very good detection accuracy.

Sesotec also meets the need for higher profitability and process efficiency along the entire value chain with a broad portfolio covering a wide range of applications. Examples of this are the RAPID 5000 metal separators for inspecting bulk materials in free-fall conveying lines and our GF 4000 for use in pneumatic conveying lines. The GF 4000 will be working on display at the trade fair, highlighting automatic function monitoring as a replacement for manual test functions. The LIQUISCAN VF IC metal separator, for liquid and pasty products, can be quickly and easily integrated into existing piping systems and connected to all common vacuum fillers, pumps, clippers and sausage meat filling systems. Matching separation systems to the production line, ensures the safe discharge of all metallic impurities.

Compliance Package

The innovative Compliance Package is a unique software solution for complete and efficient documentation of guideline-compliant food production. With the functions: Audit Check, Sensitivity Prediction, Compliance Mode, Integrated Compliance Monitoring (ICM) as well as Integrated Validation Process (IVP), no wishes remain unfulfilled for production managers, quality managers and company management.

Insight.WEB visualization software
Food manufacturers and processors are confronted with high quality requirements and increasingly complex processes. The abundance of recorded data holds great potential for process optimization, planning reliability, production and quality control, which often remains unused. Topics such as Industry 4.0, the increasing number of standard modules and the importance of seamless process documentation also require a powerful tool to know at any time what was produced, when, how and at which location or in which line.

The solution for these requirements is the interpack highlight Insight.WEB from Sesotec. This browser-based platform is a customer-oriented smart data management system that collects and structures all relevant machine data, regardless of location. At a glance and through intuitive customization, equipment performance, upcoming maintenance or potential for process optimization, as well as important changes and warnings can be easily and clearly displayed. 

Thanks to Sesotec’s decades of experience, combined with the latest methods of artificial intelligence, food manufacturers and processors have the most important figures, data, and facts always and everywhere in view with the optional visualization software.

Sesotec service at a new level
Sesotec offers a range of services to help customers raise the efficiency, productivity and connectivity of production lines to new levels throughout their entire lifecycle, whether incoming goods, during production or outgoing goods. Innovative and digital service concepts will also be presented at interpack. One example of this is “Predictive Maintenance”: the analysis of real-time data from networked machines and systems with action implications for timely intervention before a “breakdown” occurs. This helps to improve overall plant effectiveness, increase production and reduce costs.

“Our Sesotec team lives Food Safety. That is exactly what visitors will feel in every aspect. We don’t just show products. We are showing the full range of our know-how, based on decades of experience from thousands of customer projects. From hardware to software to service: with our innovative solutions, we open up paths to greater profitability and sustainability for our customers in the food industry. We are looking forward to many interesting discussions”, says Johannes von Stein, Sesotec Vice President Sales Food.
