PPMA: Lock Inspection reveals upgrades

13 July 2012

Lock Inspection Systems will exhibit at the PPMA Show 2012, on stand A53. It has upgraded its range of INSIGHT machines including new hardware, new operating software and an easy data transfer facility to help food retailers and manufacturers meet the latest global food safety standards set out in BRC 6.

Looking to empower customers with full control over metal contaminant identification and traceability, Lock continues to build on its ‘Analyse, Detect, Report’ philosophy with a software upgrade designed not only to track back any contaminant found to the exact time/date, production line and operator, but also enable clients to keep comprehensive records of test sample calibrations and other batch data thereby helping the manufacturer demonstrate full traceability should a metal foreign body be found in a finished product.

This new upgrade meets recent requirements set out in BRC 6* (the sixth edition of the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety) which sees criteria relating to hygiene, foreign body control and allergens increase by nearly 30% requiring manufacturers and retailers to demonstrate full traceability and a food manufacturing process that engineers-in robust standards of food safety and hygiene.

Another significant upgrade, currently only available on Lock systems, is the integration of a USB port on all detectorsto help manufacturers download, collate and disseminate data in digital formfrom the production facility to an office-based computer for analysis.

Lock’s systems are the first in the marketplace to offer this facility - negating the need of a printer to be hooked-up to the detector whichwould run paper based reports within the factory- enabling manufacturers to demonstrate the secure transfer and reporting of batch quality data as required by BRC 6, which became mandatory from 1 January 2012.

Throughout the three day PPMA Show, Lock will run regular free educational presentations from its PPMA stand A53, to help food manufacturers and retailers better understand the new BRC 6 requirements relating to foreign body control and accountability.
