Mettler-Toledo will present a comprehensive range of solutions and upgrades at interpack 2017 (www.mt.com/interpack17) for both the food and pharmaceutical sectors, as well as providing a wealth of technical knowledge via its experts at the stand. Protection, productivity and quality are at the core of Mettler-Toledo’s product portfolio. The company will demonstrate how focusing on these three principles will help manufacturers to improve processes and increase competitiveness in their markets. Visitors to stand Hall 11, Stand B55 from 4-10 May will be able to discuss their needs and requirements in detail while interacting with the various systems on display. 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; plus, importantly, 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 checkweighing to vision inspection and metal detection – alongside 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.

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. Complementing these enhancements is new technology, which delivers up to 20% better detection sensitivity in high volume, dry applications. Interpack attendees can also see the latest Profile Advantage Pipeline system in action – the recirculating demo system shows how this metal detection system overcomes the issues of bubbles and product voids to virtually eliminate false rejects in pipeline applications.
