Mettler-Toledo launches high-speed inspection for fresh food

The CLS Series from Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision comprises three machines geared toward inspection and label verification of fresh food packages.

The machines can check fresh-food containers of different widths and heights for best-before dates, lot number and barcodes, reportedly at high throughput rates. According to the manufacturer, the equipment is suitable for flat-packed fresh foods, ensuring compliance with labelling guidelines and regulations.

Machine choices

In addition to offering three system widths (200mm, 300mm and 400mm), the CLS Series cameras automatically adjust position to facilitate set up of each system for examination of product heights ranging from 10mm to 200mm. This capability helps producers add flexibility and accuracy, according to the company.

The CIVC ore software central to the C LS Series enables users to analyse high-resolution images at up to 250 packs per minute, store data and images of rejected packs, set up quickly for new product. The conveyor speed adjusts automatically to meet processing line needs.

Quality requirements

“Fresh food producers are increasingly turning to vision inspection technology to meet the ever more rigorous quality requirements of retailers and consumers for the packaging and labelling of their food products,”said Dr. Richard Reisbig, European Market Manager for Mettler-Toledo C I-Vision. “The CLS Series technology has been designed with the fresh food industry in mind.”

Optional reject devices are available. Additionally, the C LS Series can be connected to checkweighing systems and other inspection equipment.
