* Required field

Any questions?

Does the inspection affect the quality or appearance of the product?

No, the product quality always has the highest priority and is not affected.

Can Bizerba solutions be integrated into existing systems/production lines?

With our systems we would like to support you optimally in your production. You already have a proven production line that you would like to supplement with a Bizerba inspection system? No problem. Our solutions can be flexibly integrated into your production line. Our experts will be happy to advise you on the optimum solution.

Where are inspection systems installed in my production line?

Inspection systems must be installed in the production line at "Critical Control Points" (CCP). At best, raw materials are inspected directly at the goods receiving point, so that any foreign objects are detected before entering the production. Our experts will be happy to advise you on the selection of the right control point.

What types of packaging can be inspected?

A great variety of packaging and product types can be inspected with our inspection solutions. Basically, it depends on the target of the inspection. Please find more information here. Our experts will be happy to advise you personally.

Does added cutlery (or other components) reduce inspection reliability?

No, our inspection solutions can be individually adapted to the needs of your production. For example, X-ray systems can hide components. Our experts will be happy to advise you.

Sometimes there is a problem. How quickly can the Bizerba service be reached?

On request, our service team is available for you 24/7. We support you locally on site and via remote support.
