Metal detection technology

There are many exciting developments to be showcased at interpack 2017 with regard to metal detection systems. Visitors will be able to try a new Emulation feature based on VNC technology, for example, which allows users to remotely access and control multiple metal detectors via networked mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and other production line equipment. New Reduced Test mode technology is also being showcased. Visitors can see live demonstrations of how this innovative new technology helps reduce the frequency of routine performance monitoring by up to 83%, helping users to increase productivity and significantly reduce costs associated with routine testing.


Mettler-Toledo’s Checkweighing product line will be in focus at interpack 2017 with the launch of two new systems offering a performance increase of 30%— both developed to further meet the requirements of customers and to offer a full spectrum of options to manufacturers of all sizes in the food and pharma sectors. Terminal sizes vary accordingly and the systems will be available with numerous options in various combinations. Also on display will be an advanced checkweighing and marking system designed for serialization in the pharma industry, which combines ink jet printing and vision verification with highly accurate in-motion weighing and tamper-evident sealing. This ensures global traceability
and assists with fraud protection and process safety.

Vision inspection system

A number of vision inspection systems will be incorporated into the four lines present at the Mettler-Toledo stand, covering a wide range of market sectors that deal with packaged products. New systems will be on display that cover top and bottom inspection, 360-degree inspection and that feature brand new camera devices, including smart camera options. Aggregation and serialization solutions will also be available to view, which enable manufacturers to meet the requirements of their customers and to remain compliant with current and forthcoming regulations.

X-ray inspection technology

A wide range of x-ray inspection systems will be on display at the Mettler-Toledo stand, including a brand new, class-leading glass inspection system from the X-series. The system offers complete inspection of glass jars up to 130 mm in diameter at speeds of up to 1200 ppm. As with all X-series detection systems, a number of value-add inspection capabilities are also featured, such as accurate fill level and vacuum checks.

Inspection management software

Data management and the ability to integrate systems easily into existing lines is of paramount importance in modern manufacturing operations. Developments surrounding Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things have started to facilitate a major paradigm shift in various manufacturing industries and Mettler-Toledo has invested heavily in its software solutions, many of which will be available to interact with in Hall 11, Stand B55. One such product is an inspection data management software solution that provides seamless integration of product inspection devices. The solution streamlines processes, making them more accessible and more efficient, and allows manufacturers to control the entire product inspection management process from a single point or from multiple remote locations. This
eliminates the need for time-consuming production line patrols, allowing operators to focus on more productive tasks.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
