Impressed by the increase in both its packaging quality and a significant higher production output Hazeleger Cheese continues to aim for zero-defect flexible packages and is for the second time partnering with Engilico, the Belgian developer of SealScope™.

Higher FTR through process optimization and monitoring

As SealScope™ continuously monitors the machine process parameters the food packaging company today succeeds in keeping its process within tolerance. This results in a higher ‘first-time-right’ ratio (FTR) and an increased machine output. Additionally compromised seal packages due to folds, wrinkles, product in seal etc. are being identified and rejected.

With the help of SealScope™ Hazeleger has also further fine-tuned its packaging process, reduced the number of systematic errors (caused by non-fine-tuned process parameters) and today manages to keep the process at all times within well-defined boundaries . Early warning alarms notify the operator in case of process drift allowing corrective actions before incidental errors become repetitive.

In 2014, at the start of its first SealScope™ HFFS-integration around 5% of the packages showed some kind of inconsistency. Today the objectified SealScope™ monitoring data made process improvement possible and has caused this number to drop to an amazing 0.5%.

In-line, non-destructive 100 % seal inspection

Increasing upstream and downstream automation triggers the necessity of fast and automatic 100% seal inspection before the product is put into boxes and sent off to the final customer.

Fully automated packaging lines today not only limit manual inspection of the packaged product, but also call for the SealScope™ technology as it inspects every individual package without damaging the package or slowing down the process.
