Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection is to showcase several new product inspection technologies at the Ipack-Ima show from 3-6 May 2022, focusing on systems that deliver smart capabilities to manufacturers and packing companies in the food and non-food processing and packaging sectors.     
Situated on stand A40 in Hall 7 at the Fiera Milano in Milan, Italy, the Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection booth will feature the first showing of the next-generation M34R metal detection system. Visitors will also see a preview of a brand new affordable x-ray inspection system that will be launched in Europe later this year. The list of technologies that will be on display at the booth includes –

Launched in September 2021, the M34R is part of a new family of modular smart, metal detection systems known as the M30 R-Series. Designed specifically for small and medium-sized manufacturers and co-packers, the metal detection systems are powered by new ‘Sense’ smart software. The software combined with advanced algorithms, makes it possible for the entry-level models to deliver high sensitivity to all metal contaminant types with minimal false rejects. The M34R PlusLine is especially tailored to ‘wet’, challenging and conductive applications, using advanced signal suppression technology to reduce false reject rates.

Mettler-Toledo Throat 200 Metal Detector with ATS

Used for inspecting free-falling products, the Throat 200 is designed for VFFS applications incorporating multiple ultra-high tuned frequencies with enhanced noise and vibration immunity, helping to maximize sensitivity and detection performance. Automatic Test System (ATS) undertakes a number of optimised metal detection tests (detecting ferrous, non-ferrous, stainless steel and aluminium), ensuring repeatability and centre-line performance.   

As yet unannounced X-ray inspection system

Brand new affordable x-ray innovation, bringing the advantages of x-ray inspection to all production lines in Europe. Previously known as a high-end solution this brand new solution makes x-ray inspection accessible for all food manufacturers and enables food safety by combining high detection sensitivity and enhanced detection capabilities, with advances in ease of operation, safety, maintenance and servicing.

“We’re excited to be getting back out there and meeting our customers again,” said Roberto Scanu, Business Area manager at Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection. “The Ipack-Ima event represents a great opportunity for visitors to see our latest inspection systems for the food and packaging sectors, including some truly unique and exciting breakthrough technologies. The market wants smart solutions to its challenges, and that’s what people will discover when they stop by our booth in Milan in May.”

Naresh Khanna and Nessan Cleary will be covering the Ipack-Ima, Pharmintech and Print4All shows in Milan next for Packaging South Asia, IndiFoodBev and HealthTekPak.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
