interpack 2Experts 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.

Checkweighing

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.

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 growing 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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
