Business Areas and Features
Amid the growing consciousness of food safety and reliability, quality assurance to consumers, including the removal of contaminants not suited for consumption, is becoming a key issue for food processing manufacturers.
Anritsu Industrial Automation Business has long cultivated X-ray analysis technologies and signal and image processing technologies. Treating such technologies as core technologies, the Industrial Automation Business provides product control and quality assurance solutions by means of such systems as X-ray inspection systems that detect contaminants, metal detectors, and Checkweighers that perform high-speed and accurate weighing on production lines for the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
In addition, this segment provides precision measurement solutions, such as the solder paste inspection system that makes use of optical displacement measurement technology, for the electronic equipment and components industries, including mobile phones and LCD TVs for which built-in components are becoming more sophisticated. Such solutions contribute to the improvement of quality and productivity.
