Turnkey machine vision inspection systems for product labels and package integrity
As production speeds increase across many industries to keep up with an equally rapid growth in product demand, the risk of a defective product being produced and making its way to a retailer shelf also increases. Using a METTLER TOLEDO machine vision solution drastically reduces the risk of a defective label or package causing a product recall or expensive rework by inspecting every product on the line with a level of accuracy unattainable by manual inspection methods.
METTLER TOLEDO PC-controlled vision systems run on our state-of-the-art CIVCore software, which comes with a statistics package that not only shows the number of defective products, but can report why those products are defective. The software's robust statistical package helps manufacturers to spot failure trends, highlighting weaknesses in the production process, while comprehensive user logs increase operator accountability when it comes to properly utilizing the vision system.
METTLER TOLEDO offers multiple vision inspection system configurations to fit your precise requirements, ensuring that you only pay for the inspections and equipment you absolutely need, including Smart Camera-based systems for simpler, cost-effective inspection applications. Both our PC-controlled and Smart Camera solutions support a touchscreen interface which displays system health and the number of defective products detected. Pre-configured inspection profiles allow for rapid product changeovers – or for hands-free changeovers, manufacturers can connect vision systems to their pre-existing central control systems.
