Video helps determine cause of exploding jars on food packaging line

With the data gathered using the 20/20 Hindsight that continuously records for hours, the plant was able to quickly identify and solve a costly problem.

With the need for perfect quality and low cost production, packaging of food products can be particularly difficult. To solve these problems, use Hindsight’s food and beverage package allowing cameras to operate in clean areas. Operators can see jams in slow motion and instantly determine whether environmental issues (temperature, etc.), line setups, or material defects are the root cause.
