Trade show Emballage 2014 was held in Viroflay, France last week and hosted Mettler and its themed stage, where it launched several new products.
Eric Bertrand, product manager at Mettler-Toledo France, explained the thinking behind the theme: “As food and pharmaceutical manufacturers continue to look for ways to enhance their productivity, our latest innovations support them in enabling high throughput rates rather than slowing down production processes. With our Formula 1-themed booth at the Emballage trade show, we want to make manufacturers aware of the speed that our state-of-the-art technology can facilitate, while providing optimum product inspection and safety regulation compliance.”
Mettler showcased its latest products, including metal detection, X-ray inspection, checkweighing, vision systems and management information system software equipment, which were launched at the show.
These included; the Profile Advantage – a new metal detector that offers 50% greater detection sensitivity than standard systems, enabling manufacturers to find more metal in challenging applications such as wet, warm or chilled foods. Mettler also launched the X33 and the X36 Series – part of Mettler-Toledo Safeline X-Ray’s next-generation inspection technology, which the company claims offers up to five times more detection sensitivity than standard systems, while using up to just a fifth of power.
