Want to Prevent Costly Label-Mix-Up and Significantly Reduce Product Giveaway in Your Line?
Easy task for the world' s first system combining checkweighing and optical inspection.
|For manufacturers in highly regulated industries such as food, cosmetics and household chemicals, investigating ways to reduce the possibility of label mix-up is a critical and constant task. The new CV3770 Checkweigher from Mettler-Toledo offers accurate inspection of product labels as well as reliable weight check in a single process. The system helps manufacturers minimize any product rework, retrieval and recovery, and ensures expensive product giveaway while complying with labelling guidelines and Weights and Measures legislation.|
Prevent Label Mix-Up - Saves Money and Trouble
Imagine hundreds, if not thousands, of wrongly labelled products are produced before the defects are detected. Relabeling or repackaging products is costly in terms of time, labour and production downtime.
If wrongly labeled products have already been sent to retailers, costs related to tracking down, retrieving, and reworking products grow exponentially. In addition there may also be costly retailer fines. Even worse, if the product reaches end-consumers there are high recall costs harming brand reputation.
Comply with Global Standards and Save Valuable Line Space
Producers of food, cosmetics and household chemicals often face the problem of limited floor space. By offering dynamic checkweighing and optical inspection in one single process, the combined system simultaneously measures product weight and performs multiple inspections of crucial label information, like for example, label identification number, expiry date, and lot number. Wrongly labeled products as well as under- or overfilled products are reliably rejected from the production line. This ensures compliance with regulations, including the Weights and Measures (Packaged Goods) Regulations 2006, and labelling guidelines, such as the European Union (EU) Directive 2000/13/EC. Manufacturers will save valuable production line space by integrating the combination system with its small footprint into their line.
Two Guardians Combined – The CV3770 at a Glance
When it comes to assuring product quality, two guardians are better than one. Protect your Money, Quality and Brand:
- Elimination of product recalls, retailer fines, and waste
- Detection of incorrect product volumes or packaging errors
- Automatic double inspection of critical product properties
Complete Product Control
For the first time, a standard combined system, the CV3770 has the capability to handle large package sizes, big inspection areas and multiple inspections. This gives manufacturers the flexibility to inspect labels and checkweigh consumer products with a wide range of different widths, lengths, and weights. It features Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision's CIVCore® software, enabling precision analysis of high-resolution images at up to 250 ppm, while the checkweigher's sensitive weigh cells and high-performance software make it capable of accurate weight measurement at high speeds, optimizing detection rates for defective products without compromising line productivity. Combining the visual inspection with the checkweighing eliminates unnecessary product handling components. This results in an easy-to-integrate unit that delivers unmatched inspection accuracy.
Unified User Interface
Both system are accessed via the same interface with an easy-to-use touchscreen display, intuitive dropdown menus and graphic toolbars. This simplifies the set up process for product changeovers, enhancing flexibility. A statistics module provides real-time data to help ensure maximum production uptime. It features Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision's CIVCore® software, enabling precise analysis of high-resolution images at up to 250 ppm.
Complete Product Inspection
For the first time, a combined optical inspection and checkweighing system has the capability to handle a wide range of package sizes and shapes and various inspection areas. Combining both technologies eliminates any further product handling needs. This results in an easy-to-integrate unit that delivers an overall inspection of products. The CV3770 supports manufacturers in establishing an overall quality control station which helps them meet retailers' demands for certification such as BRC and IFS, protect their brand reputation and develop their top line business strategies.
