Mueller Dairy in Market Drayton, Shropshire, has been in production since 1992. When it comes to producing quality dairy products to the highest standards, Mueller is a market leader. Muller's most popular products in the UK is the well known "Mueller Corner" which is available in several different varieties, such as Fruit, Crunch and Bio Yogurt Corner. Over 900 million units of these premium quality products are made each year. In addition to these they also produce other favorites such as flavored rice desserts and single yogurt pots.

Mueller manufactures to the very highest quality control and safety standards. They demand the same market leading technology from their equipment suppliers. Mueller headquarters in Germany led the way in continuous improvement and investment for the group, and wanted to implment x-ray machines on all their production lines.  The aim was to reliably check fill levels and detect foreign objects from one system during production. Initial tests were carried out with equipment from existing reputable manufacturers but the results did not meet Mueller's requirements. They decided to run test with the new OCS x-ray scanner whihc implemented a new camera technology.
