The technology inspects 100% of products and shapes and identifies 100% of label data and quality challenges. This new 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 expensive retailer fines.
“We are very excited to be launching our new label inspection technology offering – and just in time for Interpack,” says Neil Gruettner, Business Development 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 at Interpack how easy it is to replace manual spot checks with 100% label inspection, which 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, labelling 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 the ingredients such as allergens are correct, the new label inspection offering from Mettler-Toledo reliably detects every nonconformity, the company said in a statement
