Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection Demonstration Bus Showcased At The Food Safety Summit


Tampa, FL - Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed and Mettler-Toledo Safeline, the worldwide leaders in checkweighing, metal detection and x-ray inspection equipment, will showcase the Product Inspection Demo Bus. The bus travels throughout the year to food and pharmaceutical plants providing a convenient hands-on training opportunity for processors and packagers to gain specific knowledge about how to limit product waste and contamination in their plants. Staffed by a technical trainer, it features working checkweighers, metal detectors, and x-ray inspection systems and offers interactive machine and product testing demonstrations.

Safeline Metal Detectors
The advanced PowerPhasePRO metal detector features a color touch screen interface and one pass automatic setup. It's unique "clustering" capability allows multiple product types to be run without changing settings for maximum uptime. The PowerPhasePLUS ultra-high-frequency metal detector offers increased sensitivity, particularly to non-ferrous and difficult-to-detect stainless steel contaminants.

The compact Gravity Flow metal detector fits easily into limited spaces and its low-pressure diverter valve minimizes product loss during contamination removal regardless of product flow for maximum profits.

The Pipeline metal detector stands up to extreme processing and washdown environments. Its patented design makes cleaning fast and easy for more uptime on processing lines.

The Tablex 2 pharmaceutical detector zeros in on tramp metal from broken screens, sieves, worn punches, dies or bulk raw materials and automatically rejects contaminated tablets and capsules for ultimate brand protection. The unique triple axis detection head offers tool-free adjustment to fit any press output configuration.

Safeline X-ray Inspection Systems
The innovative PowerChekPlus X-ray system reliably detects physical contaminants and automatically scans for missing or broken product, detects package voids, and confirms fill levels to guarantee product and package integrity. The AdvanChek X-ray system is designed as a sophisticated but simple for users that require the best contamination detection without the complexities normally associated with x-ray inspection. Utilizing a vertical single beam, it detects and rejects many contaminants including metal, stone, bone, and glass.

Hi-Speed Checkweighers
The Cornerstone XS checkweigher features the largest IP-69K user interface on the market making it ideal for wet or harsh wash down environments. The easy to learn, multilingual color touch screen is simple to operate for fast product set-up and change over ensuring more uptime performance. "No-tool" belt change out speeds up maintenance, reduces downtime, and increases overall productivity.

The XE2 checkweigher delivers exceptional dynamic weighing performance at an economical cost. Patented Mettler-Toledo electromagnetic force restoration (EMFR) weigh cell technology ensures sustained accuracies over long production cycles ensuring tight tolerances are maintained from the first to the last package weighed.

All Mettler-Toledo product inspection equipment is supported by the most comprehensive engineering solutions, product testing, customer service and training in the industry.
