  • Zoned Mass (Look at each compartment separately)
  • Fluid Density or Fat\Lean Analysis for Meat
  • Missing Components (Inserts, Prizes, Parts)
Product Integrity – Look inside the Packaging
  • Crushed, Broken, Partial Product
  • Missing Filling, Nuts
  • Seasoning Agglomerates
  • Seal Inspection
