Statistical quality control in the food industry

Save time and reduce cost in food packaging processes

Application note: Optimize food packaging processes with statistical quality control (SQS)

The goal of production and filling process is to keep the shaded area as small as possible. This means achieving a fill quantity right above the nominal fill line, with the minimum of fluctuation.

The XPR-SQC solution can be used with all XPR analytical and precision balances and is suitable for a vast variety of production applications.

Fill quantities of packaged food and beverages are governed by strict regulations. To comply with these regulations, fill quantities must not be below a specified minimum value. Fill quantities lower the defined minimum may result not only in disappointed consumers and loss of reputation but also charges of fraud. However, it is also in the interest of a producer to not overfill packages, as this is essentially product giveaway. While regulations vary, in some countries and with certain products, overfilling is also prohibited.

To ensure fill quantities remain within required tolerances and to optimize quantities to maintain margins and profitability, statistical quality control (SQC) in the food industry is often carried out. XPR precision balances, together with the SQC application, offer a standalone tool for the monitoring, control and optimization of filling processes in the food and beverage industries.

This free whitepaper describes how to save time and reduce cost in food packaging processes with the XPR-SQC solution.
