Cake and dessert producer Mathiesons has invested in Loma Systems’ X5 Spacesaver x-ray inspection system.

Retailer codes of practice that increasingly specify a preference for x-ray contaminant detection technology and on-going business growth has driven cake and dessert producer, Mathiesons, to install one of Loma Systems latest generation X5 Spacesaver x-ray models. This high performance machine was launched by the leading global manufacturer of food industry checkweighers, metal detectors and x-ray inspection equipment less than 12 months ago.

The new X5 Spacesaver, which is inspecting fresh cream products for contaminants at speeds up to 1500 packs per hour, complements two Loma metal detectors already in use at the company’s plant.

It offers 25% improved detection performance, 20% smaller footprint than similar machines and ultra-hygienic design for quick clean and low maintenance and serviceability.

Nick Wills, managing director at Mathiesons, said the investment follows on from the successful installation of two Loma metal detectors several years ago.

“As a food business, we are committed to utilising the best production equipment on the market and we felt that this new x-ray model met our brief perfectly.

“Space is always at a premium so the X5 Spacesaver’s compact, slimline size is a big advantage. It also has a very hygienic design including sloping shoulders so food particles do not gather in the crevices and easy access for efficient strip down, cleaning and maintenance.”

Established in 1872, Mathiesons manufactures a wide range of chilled and ambient cakes and desserts for local and UK-wide retailers, including independent bakeries and major supermarkets.
