Mettler-Toledo Presents 100% Automated Label Inspection Suite of Solutions at Pack Expo Las Vegas, Booth C-1814
Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection presents a completely automated, full label inspection service for food and pharmaceutical manufacturers in booth C-1814 at Pack Expo Las Vegas, being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Sept 11-13, 2023. The technology inspects 100% of products and shapes and identifies 100% of label data and quality challenges. This portfolio, consisting of the V13 Flat Pack Label, CV and CMV Combination, is a cost-effective way to exchange unreliable, manual spot checks with 100% automated label inspection in high-speed production lines. The solution helps to achieve documented label inspection in line with industry guidelines such as the BRCGS to support consumer safety, prevent recalls and minimize expensive retailer fines.
“We are very excited to be exhibiting this label inspection technology at Pack Expo Last Vegas,” says Keri Klein, Product Line Manager, Vision Inspection, Mettler-Toledo. “The 100% automated label inspection portfolio is fully flexible and offers solutions that can easily be integrated into existing production lines, either as installation kits, standalone systems or combined with other Mettler-Toledo product inspection devices, such as checkweighers, metal detectors or x-ray systems. We are looking forward to demonstrating to new and existing customers how easy it is to replace manual spot checks with 100% label inspection. All help to reduce rework, recall risks and retailer fines.”
Many manufacturers struggle with label data and label quality issues. From common operator errors to equipment malfunctions, including torn labels or ink smudging, labeling has long been an issue for manufacturers that cannot be effectively solved with manual spot checks. Whether it is checking the right product is in the right package, the codes are readable and/or the ingredients such as allergens are correct, the label inspection offering from Mettler-Toledo reliably detects every non-conformity.
The offering includes advanced Mettler-Toledo smart cameras to inspect oriented products from the side and top. This unique smart line scan camera effectively inspects labels or prints on the underside of products and offers a 360-degree inspection head for checking round objects. The cameras can be mixed and matched to suit any production need and can also be used to inspect caps and lids. The software is particularly easy to use, featuring a dedicated tool set for label inspection that helps with product set-up. Additionally, it offers Software Tooltips which are inspection tools to intuitively guide operators through the image processing settings such as lights, shutter or focus to maximize image quality. The technology can be retrofitted onto existing Mettler-Toledo equipment, offering considerable space savings.
