Mettler Toledo Safeline Takes to the Road with New Cutting Edge X-ray Technology Systems

08 July 2008

Food and Pharmaceutical Industry get to Test the Latest in Xray Systems.

Mettler Toledo Safeline, the world leading manufacturer of the most diverse range of X-ray systems, took to the road during 2008 giving food and pharmaceutical customers the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience of the latest xray technology for contamination detection. Starting in the South of England and heading North, the Safeline demonstration van showcasing the cutting edge x-ray systems and equipment has been touring the country providing on-site demonstrations at different customer sites.

The demonstration van contains two state-of-the-art x-ray machines. The AdvanCheK x-ray inspection system is designed to withstand harsh wash down environments. This machine is a powerful yet economical x-ray inspection unit that detects multiple contaminants such as metal, stone, bone, glass and dense plastics. The InspireX R20 x-ray inspection system detects and rejects many contaminants as well as scans for missing and broken products, detects package voids and checks fill levels to guarantee product and package integrity. Both xray systems utilise Safeline's unique low energy x-ray technology that is unmatched in the industry for sensitivity and simplicity. Live test reports can be run on both x-ray machines in the van to enhance the demonstration.

So far the tour has been a huge success and emphasises Mettler Toledo’s continued commitment to customer care and support. Visitors to the van are able to test their own products on the Safeline x-ray machines without having to take significant time out of their busy work schedules.

Nick Hobson, Technical Manager at Isleport Foods commented;

“I was impressed with the amount of effort and commitment that Mettler-Toledo invested into this project. The visit of the van gave us the opportunity to see a live hands-on demonstration involving our product which helped us understand the value of x-ray inspection technology.”

Due to the national success of the tour in the UK, the tour is now going international with visits to Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Croatia.
