WP 3  - Modular approaches to all food industrial sectors 

Lead beneficiary: GASPOROX AB - Sweden

Period: month 1-10

Obiectives

The aim of WP3 is to find a modular approach to make the SafetyPack inspection system applicable to a wide
range of food industrial sectors. The work will result in:
- Definition of technical requirements of the SAFETYPACK inspection unit to assure modular approach to all
food industrial sectors.
- Definition of inspector unit, measurement concept and inline implementation to achieve the modular approach.
- Systemization of the packaging industrial sector and identification of common general measurement concepts.
- Design of modular approach to fulfil large applicability to the industrial sector.
- Evaluated modular approach concept

Description of work and role of partners

This work package will define the modular approach of the SAFETYPACK inspection machine that will integrate
the non-intrusive laser gas sensor in order to be easily implemented to all food industrial sectors, taking into
account the various packaging containers nowadays available and the main characteristics of the industrial
production lines in terms of technical characteristics as production speed, etc.

Task 3.1 Literature and case studies ]
Gathering of packaging and production information of the food industrial sector and their need of gas monitoring
inside the packages in the production, their solution today, their packaging and quality control method today and
future demands.

Task 3.2 Systemization of packaging inspection models 
Systemization of the packaging industrial sector and identification of common general measurement concepts.
Information such as package type, content and production way will serve as a base to find common groups and
measurement principle to be able to utilize the laser inspection method for gas analysis.

Task 3.3 Modular approach concept evaluation 
A prestudy will be made with to evaluate the proposed approaches to make the sensor applicable to a wide
range of food packages and production ways.

Task 3.4 Definition of inspection system technical specification to meet the requirements of the modular
approach 
Systematic and thorough description of the technical issues for measurement concept and machine design to
fulfil the modular approach to all food industrial sectors.
