The Germany-based company’s software permits food manufacturers to network Mettler-Toledo inspection technologies to one or more remote processing and control locations within an operation. It helps streamline data analysis, which can be a big help in demonstrating due diligence and product traceability.
Central to the system is an intuitive interface that permits real-time remote access to data from checkweighers, metal detectors and x-ray equipment and other inspection tools. Manufacturers can track products through the process, with access to data on rejects and machine performance from all networked inspection systems.
Using the enhanced software, staff can leap into action and correct faults for top processing line efficiency. With early warning of quality and performance issues, operation personnel can avoid larger problems and avoid downtime.
The software also offers a wealth of data export abilities, which helps users create intelligent reports quickly. Further, the software reportedly is easy to install, with no engineering or IT intervention needed.
According to Mettler-Toledo representative Peter Spring, the software’s ability to boost production efficiency through networking is invaluable in an increasingly competitive processing environment.
“Networking product inspection systems helps to reduce downtime during product changeovers and machine maintenance, minimizing manufacturing costs,” he said.
