Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection has announced the launch of two new Product Data Check technology options to perform product label checks on a wide variety of food and pharmaceutical packaging to minimise rework, mitigate recalls, reduce waste, improve operational efficiencies, and uphold brand integrity.

The upgrade will be integrated into its existing C-Series checkweighers and the new vision inspection add-ons allow manufacturers to incorporate fully integrated smart camera technology into their production lines to verify the presence of correct labels.

As a result, the German company said, manufacturers can reject incorrectly labelled packaged products, helping to minimise the risk of product recalls plus protect brand integrity and profits from avoidable product loss.

"Recalls and rework due to mislabelled products is an easily-prevented issue​," said Jürgen Kress, head of Checkweighing and Vision Inspection for Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection. "That is why we wanted to give manufacturers an easy way to add product data verification to their existing Mettler-Toledo equipment to provide extra quality control with minimal use of production line space​."

Constructed in Germany, the Product Data Check is available in two different configurations depending on the product shape.
