Mettler-Toledo set to open its inspection systems global centre of excellence
Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection is set to showcase new checkweighing inspection technologies, seminars and consultations at an Open House event next month officially welcoming its new Global Centre of Excellence for x-ray in Royston, Hertfordshire, UK, writes Neill Barston.
As the company explained to Confectionery Production, its latest facility will play a key role in its continued expansion over the next decade and beyond, as it enhances its range of industry systems and equipment.
Set across a 1.4-hectare site, the location expands company’s UK manufacturing footprint by more than 80%, enabling multiple development projects to be handled simultaneously. The facility will also help further improve customer experience, with new factory acceptance testing rooms and a production observation area.
The COVID-safe event will take place between- 6-7 October, giving brand owners, manufacturers and contract packers in food and pharmaceuticals the opportunity to experience the latest innovations and best practice in x-ray, metal detection, checkweighing and vision inspection, which are applicable to a number of sectors including for confectionery, snacks and bakery ranges.
Manufacturers and contract packers can book a free personalised 1-2-1 consultation, either virtually or in-person, enabling their teams to tap into Mettler-Toledo’s expert knowledge of areas such as compliance, product safety and digitalisation.
The company’s latest product innovations will take centre stage, with 1-2-1 customised live demonstrations of a new metal detection system, a new x-ray inspection machine as well as the latest C33 Series checkweighers with FlashCell load cells and demonstrations of our vision inspection solutions and ProdX data management software. In addition, the event will also include two educational seminars, both running at 8am and 2pm (BST) on their respective days.
