DMRI The world’s first online CT scanner for food
Full 3D imagesThe new online CT scanner creates full 3D images of the food item providing information about composition, structure and potential product flaws. Depending on product size, 600 items per hour can be continuously scanned and automatically analyzed 24/7.
DMRI has developed the online CT scanner primarily for the meat industry in order to sort cuts according to quality attributes. In food production one is often challenged by a high biological variation in raw materials and the more that is known about this variation, the better the raw material can be utilized. The end-goal is to fulfil customer expectations by providing the exact right quality, thus giving all of us the right food products at the right price. Food companies that understand and excel in this simply do better business.
Other food products such as fish, cheese, fruit and vegetables are also relevant in the context of this technology. These products can now be quality assessed with an extreme precision and granularity without affecting the product.
