METTLER TOLEDO PRODUCT INSPECTION

The product inspection division of METTLER TOLEDO produces a suite of high quality, very reliable inspection equipment for use in high speed, demanding manufacturing production lines. Our track and trace solutions include serialization and aggregation software, hardware and product handling using stations or integrated kits for existing packaging machinery. Our vision inspection systems automatically check the product to ensure perfect presentation and that all required markings are present, and checkweighers complete a 100% weight check of all items. In addition, our metal detectors ensure that any metal contamination is found and eliminated from the production line, and x-ray inspection systems are able to effectively detect dense physical contaminants as well as measure mass and check for missing or damaged product inside closed packages.

SERIALIZATION SOLUTIONS

Serialization solutions enabling easy tractability and tracking of individual product packages.

Fully automated aggregation, compliance with regulations and industry standards, and flexibility and modularity. Solutions for the marking, verification and Code verification of aggregated product packages from carton to crate.

Entry-level Serialization for Small Batches.

The T2811 Label Serialization Compact prints and inspects labels with serialized data in one integrated system.

Compact, fully integrated system for marking and verification of pharmaceutical Track & Trace products.

Track & Trace Compliant Labelling and Aggregation of Outer Boxes.

The T2650 is a module for aggregating outer boxes in the Track & Trace process. By verifying all items in a shipping box, it ensures transparency and process safety within the pharmaceutical packaging process.

The station printer generates a label with an individual serial number for the pallet. The technical data is provided by the capture of all shipping cases. The hand scanner provides the readout of label data for all shipping case as well as the corresponding pallet. 

The Advanced Bundle Station (ABS) uses a high resolution camera to read the 2D codes of every single carton aggregated into a bundle. Once these codes have been verified the external database will assign the bundle a unique serialization code. This code is then printed directly onto the bundle and verified. The bundle is then registered with all data for the cartons contained within a bundle.

The Pilot Line Manager Software is an innovative software management system which controls all printing devices on pharmaceutical packaging stations via an Ethernet network. The software system collates all relevant data to create an electronic audit trail complaint to 21 CFR Part 11. A central user-interface handles and monitors all sensors, code readers, cameras and printers.
