Mettler-Toledo has test center for inspection products
The application test center at Mettler-Toledo’s headquarters facility in Lutz, Florida, is outfitted with a wide range of inspection equipment, including metal detectors, checkweighers, vision and X-ray inspection systems and serialization systems.
The center’s primary purpose is to enable companies considering adding new inspection systems to their operations to test-run their own products on Mettler-Toledo systems to ensure they are choosing the correct systems for their needs.
This free program allows manufacturers to send their product samples to the center and receive a full testing report in two-to-four days that details attainable inspection accuracy, performance, and detection sensitivity. Manufacturers are welcome to attend or can select to participate virtually.
Testing can include running multiple products on a closed loop to simulate production line performance. As part of Mettler-Toledo R&D program, companies can also use the test center capabilities to try out new products they are considering. One special capability available at the center is the X3750 glass-in-glass inspection system, which can detect glass contaminants even in hard-to-inspect glass container thick, curved bases. Another is the use of 3-D printing to help create special fixtures to optimize inspections when doing vision inspection evaluations.
