Abstract

Quality and quantity inspection are essential in any industry but in the food industry they are a vital part of the manufacturing process. Samples of the product are taken away regularly for checking in a laboratory and continuous inspection of the product on the line is also necessary. Modern electronic scales can be used rapidly to check-weigh every item produced so that a guaranteed, minimum weight is delivered to the customer. Measurements of size and shape can be made, as was described for potatoes in chapter 2 (page 13), and items can be counted electronically. There are many pieces of electronic equipment available for carrying out quantity measurements.
