The Pies the Limit For Loma’s New X5 SpaceSaver X-ray

LomaWelshPantryFebruary2015Loma Systems has recently completed one of the first installations of an X5 SpaceSaver X-ray inspection unit. Manufacturer of savoury pastry products, The Welsh Pantry, chose the new model for its groundbreaking detection performance, super compact design and ease of use.

The Welsh Pantry is using the advanced X5 SpaceSaver X-ray system to inspect its pie products for glass, ceramic and stainless steel contaminants. Adhering to Loma’s ‘Designed to Survive’ ethos, the X5 SpaceSaver measures only one metre in length enabling customers to reclaim valuable floor space.

Alan Shaw, Technical Manager at The Welsh Pantry, comments: “I have a long-standing relationship with Loma having used its equipment at a previous company, as well as in my current role at The Welsh Pantry. The need to inspect pies for a range of foreign body contaminants, not just metal, down to the smallest size meant X-ray technology was the best choice for this particular application.

“However, like many food production facilities, space is at a premium so the launch of the Loma’s super compact X5 SpaceSaver X-ray with significantly smaller footprint was great timing. The system’s market leading detection performance is also helping to further strengthen our strict quality control and food safety procedures.”
