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.

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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
