Businesses within the confectionery and bakery sector are being invited to experience inspection equipment firm Mettler-Toledo’s latest lines as part of its ‘virtual Interpack’ presentation event from today until 5 June.
Companies will be able to visit a Virtual Exhibition Hall Visit to view models of the latest product inspection technologies and learn how they can benefit businesses. An Auditorium will present a wide range of educational live and on-demand presentations on topics including food safety, Industry 4.0 and Advanced Data Management. Manufacturers can now register their interest to attend mtpi.vfairs.com.
“Coronavirus may have delayed Interpack until next year however we felt that it was vital to still showcase our latest product inspection technology innovations to help food and pharmaceutical manufacturers meet the increased demand for safe, high quality products. Individuals can log on for free and learn about industry trends, best practises, and chat to experts about how they can improve their manufacturing processes plus meet consumer and regulatory demands,” said Paul Lerigo, Marketing Manager – Product Inspection Division, Mettler-Toledo.
Among the company’s showcase will be a number of systems including checkweighing and product data checks innovations, such as its C33 PlusLine washdown checkweigher.
As the business explained, it offers a combination of reliable weighing accuracy with rugged machine design, it has been designed to deliver high precision weighing in harsh environments. The system design makes cleaning and maintenance simple; with easy dismantling and reassembly of system conveyors – including self-adjusting elastic belts that remove the need for tensioning. In most cases, cleaning with the parts in place is possible and the flip-up design of the conveyors allows easy access to all critical areas.
Furthermore, its C35 advancedline washdown checkweigher has been unveiled targeting use within harsh environments. It is said to deliver precise weighing results on a stable weighing platform resistant to high-pressure washdown and most caustic detergents. The system frame is designed according to hygienic principles, with easy access for cleaning and sloped surfaces to discourage liquid collection. The system supports speeds of up to 250 packs per minute and a weighing range from 25 g to 7 kg.
Finally, its Product Data Check verifies content of product labelling as well as the print quality of the label, helping to prevent mislabelling errors occurring during product changeovers. The new vision inspection component can be added to an existing checkweigher or combination inspection system. There are two configurations available, depending on the product shape.
For oriented products, manufacturers can have up to three cameras to verify product data on the front, back and top of a product. Whereas, for round products, the Product Data Check 360 serves as an effective add-on for any product inspection system. The housing mounts directly to a Checkweigher system or equipment and has a small footprint to save space. The housing is IP65 rated for wet cleaning environments and has sloped surfaces supporting hygienic design principles.
