Eagle Product Inspection has identified sanitation and survivability as key factors in the design of the new machines for the meat industry it unveiled last week.

Richard Hebel, product manager at Eagle, took FoodProductionDaily.com through the firm’s latest x-ray inspection and fat analysis innovations at the IFFA Trade Show 2013 in Frankfurt.

Eagle launched innovations developed for the FA720Series, which uses Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) to calculate the meat’s Chemical Lean (CL) value within +/- 1CL.

The Eagle Validate software is an internal calibration function built in to the FA720 Series, making it possible for line operatives to verify the accuracy of the technology’s CL values at the touch of a button.

Eagle’s Remote Touchscreen Console (RTC) for the FA720 Series displays the same information as the Human Machine Interface (HMI), allowing the fat analysis system to be operated from a remote location.

The firm also confirmed strategic distribution partnerships with Swedish firm WEPAC Automation and Dutch organization Olman Handelmaatschappij b.v.
