Production Line Inspection Solutions to Ensure Product Quality and Integrity

Call for Quote

Sending incomplete or substandard quality product to market is bad for business. The result can be lost customer confidence, damaged reputations and costly recalls. Random manual sampling and quality checks are inherently unsafe posing a serious risk that out-of-specification products reach end users. Detecting faults early in a process can benefit production schedules and avoid the need to quarantine suspect product in the event of a quality issue. Modern quality inspection systems inspect 100% of product, making it quicker and easier to identify the scale and source of a problem.

Quality Assurance vs Quality Control

Quality Assurance, in contrast to quality control, is the implementation of quality checks and procedures to immediately correct any failure and mistake that is able to reduce the quality of the interim products at every production step. Thus, the desired high quality of the final product can be planned and assured.

The final quality inspection is proof of due diligence and its use is laid down in many food safety and pharmaceutical guidelines, standards, legislation and regulations.

Modern x-ray inspection systems can perform a wide-range of in-line quality checks including measuring mass, counting components, identifying missing or broken products, monitoring fill levels, inspecting seal integrity and checking for damaged packaging in addition to contamination detection.

Vision inspection solutions are able to perform complete dimensional and cosmetic inspections on package shape and closures as well as carry out full label inspection. Systems are infinitely scalable and can verify package integrity on filled bottles, trays, cases, cartons, kits and other packages. Labels play a key part of packaging and the ability to inspect labels for proper ID, correctness and overall presentation, verifying that barcodes and printed codes are readable and correct will ensure that poorly packaged product will never reach the retail shelf.

METTLER TOLEDO is uniquely able to draw on the applications expertise of a global network of industry specialists and a comprehensive range of advanced inspection technologies. We are committed to providing the most appropriate solutions to address the  full life-cycle needs of our customers safely and sustainably.
