“Their (Domino’s) commitment to the canning industry in particular was much stronger ... their engineering resources have made what looks like a complicated task a very straight forward integration.” -Peco InspX General Sales Manager Martin Lymn

Since the FDA began regulating food safety with FSMA in January 2011, Peco InspX’s X-ray imaging has become increasingly important to food and beverage companies nationwide. A key aspect of complying with the new law, and other food safety schemes, is increased demand for traceability which includes identifying foreign material in a controlled and managed environment.

“One of the challenges of a canning application is the high speed that cans run  at,” Peco InspX General Sales Manager  Martin Lymn shared. Some facilities run up to  2,000 cans per minute. “We’re taking an X- ray image and identifying any defects in that  can,” Lymn  explained. Once a foreign material containment is detected, best practice is to not  only remove the can from the line, but also  document the can and understand the source.  This is where Domino product coding comes into play. 

Peco InspX and Domino North America have teamed up to create an industry-wide solution to help food and beverage manufacturers meet the FDA’s requirements.

In collaboration with Peco InspX, we came up with a solution that provides coding and traceability. It gives companies a safety net against expensive recalls by providing the ability to actually track down the exact defective can.
