Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision, a global manufacturer of vision inspection solutions for food and beverages, opened a new European Innovation Center in Germany.

With local access to expert consultants and state-of-the-art vision inspection technology, the center streamlines the evaluation and design process to develop new cost effective, customized vision inspection technology that meets manufacturers’ individual needs.

Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision’s inspection technology supports compliance with safety initiatives that require control over product quality as well as producing accurate records for traceability throughout the supply chain. The company’s vision inspection solutions can also detect packaging defects such as incorrect labelling, ensure accurate product fill level and confirm seal integrity to support manufacturing profitability, quality assurance and consumer welfare.

“There has been explosive growth in demand for high-quality vision inspection technology in Europe”, says Tom McLean, general manager. “Rigorous new food safety initiatives in the region, such as the British Retail Consortium Version 6 and existing pharmaceutical legislation mean that it is more important than ever before for manufacturers to have immediate access to the latest vision inspection technology as well as expert advice regarding compliance.”
