GEA EasyCheck

Seamless production flow by 3-in-1 content inspection system

GEA EasyCheck
Ensure food safety and speed up your production processes. GEA EasyCheck combines metal detection, weight control and automatic rejection in a single machine. This makes sure, that your packages comply with applicable regulations.

Automatic metal detection, weight control and product rejection

High-quality packages provide the safe distribution of food products. But global standards such as HACCP, IFS and BRC must be met. Our 3-in-1 content inspection system GEA EasyCheck reliably detects incorrect weights and metal contamination of the packaged food products after the form-fill-seal process. A product rejection system is integrated , which sorts out m etal-contaminated packages or those with incorrect weights and products identified also by other inspection systems like GEA OxyCheck and LeakCheck.

Main Applications

The compact GEA EasyCheck inline weight control and metal detection system makes it easier for food manufacturers to check that all food products packaged in MAP, vacuum or skin packs match the ir declared fill weight s and are free of danger ous foreign objects.
