Tip 1: Make Sure Your Aerosol cans top Cover Making Machine is Compliant with FDA Standards
There’s not much point in adding any piece of automation to your production line if it isn’t compliant with the latest FDA standards for food sanitation and safety. This is especially true of food inspection machines such as x-ray and metal detection devices.
Check resources such as the Equipment Design Task Force’s (EDTF’s) Sanitary Equipment Design Principles Checklist to see if the equipment you’re adding meets all guidelines for sanitary equipment design.
Tip 2: Whenever Possible, Physically Inspect Machinery Before Making a Purchase Decision
It happens all the time: the equipment detailed in the product catalog has the perfect specs, and the design in the picture looks right. But, when the machine arrives, it has the wrong configuration for interfacing with your production line.
The materials might not be compatible with the rest of your production equipment, or the method by which it moves product might not work with the state of your product or packaging at that phase.
Checking the physical configuration and materials of your food inspection machine prior to purchase is a necessity for ensuring that it will work well with your quality assurance program.
