Mettler-Toledo Garvens’ XE100 CC Compact integrates checkweighing and metal detection technologies using a single short conveyor with patented metal inspection technology.
The company says the system enables manufacturers to meet regulatory compliance with weight specifications and at the same time uphold their brand reputation by guaranteeing that products are free from foreign metal contaminants.
Designed to accommodate large products and bulk items, the machine can inspect up to 80 products a minute, ranging in sizes up to 60kg.
Mettler-Toledo Garvens says the space-saving system can be easily integrated into production lines and offers an intuitive interface that requires minimal training to operate.
When over- or underweight products are detected, the conveyor automatically stops and an alarm is sounded, allowing operators to remove it from the line. This ensures manufacturers avoid costly fines for non-compliance with metrology standards. In addition the optional feedback control alerts the filling machines to adverse portion trends to reduce product give-away caused by over-filling.
The system significantly helps prevent product recalls and potential threats to public safety
The XE100 CC Compact offers a small metal free zone of 150mm for non-movable parts and 300mm for movable parts. By identifying foreign metal contaminants, the system significantly helps prevent product recalls and potential threats to public safety, ensuring brand integrity.
The system is easy to clean and maintain, reducing downtime and offering manufacturers greater flexibility and efficiency. Its innovative conveyor belt design is outfitted with a quick release mechanism, allowing manufacturers to replace the conveyor belt quickly without the need to dismantle or remove mechanical parts.
‘The XE 100 CC Compact represents a new generation of combined checkweighing and metal detection technology. It is the most compact and complete inspection system on the market for products up to 60kg,’ says Kerstin Bernhart, marketing manager at Mettler-Toledo Garvens.
‘The system overcomes space constraint issues and offers efficiency and peace of mind to manufacturers who are concerned with regulatory compliance, consumer safety and brand integrity.’
