VISION INSPECTION SYSTEM
METTLER TOLEDO CI-Vision introduced a new design for its Mosaic Compact 2.0 vision inspection system. Utilizing the same paneling technology as the full-size Mosaic, the Mosaic Compact can perform high-speed label inspections on round, un-oriented products, including graphical identification, barcode reading, OCR and OCV. The Mosaic Compact’s small footprint enables it to fit into tight spaces on the production line, and its free-standing tunnel design doesn’t require breaking into existing production lines. The Mosaic Compact 2.0 runs on CIVCore 11, which allows users to view real-time statistics and data on the system’s performance.

LABELING & INSPECTION SOLUTIONS FOR MEAT PROCESSING
MULTIVAC Marking & Inspection debuted a conveyor belt labeler from the BASELINE L 300 series, which can be integrated in packaging lines or used as a standalone solution to apply top and bottom labels as well as labels over the edge of packs. Meanwhile, the L 330 conveyor belt labeler with side-driven toothed belt guides can be integrated into a thermoforming packaging line, ensuring that packs of sliced products are perfectly labeled. Meanwhile, the BASELINE I 100 x-ray inspection system detects foreign bodies made of metal, glass, bone, stone, ceramics and dense plastic, and can be used for checking the completeness or fill level of packs. And, the I 211 checkweigher with metal detector boasts integrated recipe management and reduces interaction between man and machine.
