Mettler Toledo: Combination inspection system

The CV35 system combines Mettler Toledo's C35 checkweigher platform with the capabilities of its machine vision technology. It offers weight measurement and label inspection in one compact machine and helps manufacturers and packagers ensure accurate product weight, comply with labeling guidelines and weights and measures legislation, and minimize product rework, retrieval, and recovery.

The combined technology simultaneously measures product weight and performs multiple inspections of a label’s information – the product identification number, expiration date, and lot number – ensuring compliance with both weights and measures and product identification regulations. Its compact footprint and a single reject mechanism for both inspection technologies help shorten the production line, optimizing use of factory floor space.

The CV35 can handle large package sizes, big inspection target areas, and multiple product inspections. This gives manufacturers the flexibility to both weigh and inspect the labels of products with a wide range of widths, lengths, and weights. The system features Mettler Toledo CI-Vision’s CIVCore® 11 software, which offers precision analysis of high-resolution images at up to 250 ppm. The checkweigher’s sensitive weigh cells and high-performance software deliver accurate weight measurement at high speeds. This combination optimizes detection rates for defective products without compromising line productivity. Its easy-to-use touchscreen display, intuitive dropdown menus and graphic toolbars simplify the set up process for product changeovers, enhancing flexibility and boosting production uptime.

The CV35 system also features an easy-to-clean open construction, with sloping surfaces and tubular framework to minimize dirt traps, and a robust stainless steel cabinet to protect internal mechanisms from water or dust ingress. The hygienic capabilities ensure that manufacturers can maintain the high standards of sanitation expected on pharmaceutical and food production lines.
