Fortress wins prestigious lean manufacturing accolade
Fortress Technology together with Sparc Systems is celebrating being honoured with the distinguished Lean Manufacturing Award for its new Raptor combination metal detector and checkweigher food inspection machine. The company received nominations from all over the globe in the Food Processing Awards 2021.
This Lean Manufacturing award acknowledges the success, excellence, and innovation of companies that throughout the challenges of the pandemic continued to deliver the highest operational efficiency and implement best in class procedures and lean principles. The Raptor Combi, on display at the PPMA Show 2021 at the end of this month, fulfils this brief with its paperless, fully auditable COP test routine that pre-configures every test by retailer and product being inspected and alerts QA managers each time a test is overdue.
Given the current availability issues and rising food prices, the Raptor was specifically engineered to help food manufacturers counteract wasteful and costly product giveaway and eliminate contaminations from the global supply chain. The series comprises all three food inspection disciplines – metal detectors, checkweighers and now Fortress Technology’s first x-ray machine – and is available in any combination, including metal detector checkweigher, x-ray checkweigher and even metal detector and x-ray.
Managing director Phil Brown said: “High operational efficiency has never been more important than now – making this Lean Manufacturing Award even more special. It is testament to the dedication of our entire team which has worked tirelessly designing our Raptor inspection series that delivers the best value to performance to our customers.”
