Experts will focus on areas such as improvements to brand protection and compliance, as the regulatory landscapes within food and pharmaceuticals become ever more complex; enhancing productivity and increasing operator efficiency to improve OEE; enhancing product quality through the detection of physical contaminants, ensuring accurate package weights, complete contents and correct labelling; and the safety of workers who operate inspection systems on production lines.
Neil Giles, marketing manager at Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection commented, “Mettler-Toledo is committed to support the industries it serves and that is always reflected at interpack. The company has invested a huge amount of time and effort in the preparation of the stand, and every care has been taken to select the most appropriate systems to feature. A wide range of solutions will be present—from x-ray and check-weighing to vision inspection and metal detection alongside advance software packages such as ProdX, designed to make integration and data management as straightforward as possible for customers with demanding production schedules.”
Mettler-Toledo’s stand will comprise four operational lines, one for general food, one for dry food, one for wet food and a final line dedicated to pharmaceuticals. All four areas of product inspection technology are represented, with highlights including:
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.
