Mettler-Toledo Makes New Connections with ProdX v1.2

Advanced data management software enhances product traceability and compliance for food manufacturers.

Networked connectivity of product inspection systems is becoming more widespread as a means of ensuring compliance with increasingly rigorous industry regulations to safeguard consumer wellbeing and protect manufacturers’ brand reputation.

Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection’s enhanced data management software ProdX v1.2 optimizes product inspection data collection and monitoring to meet food safety demands.

Enabling the connection of Mettler-Toledo’s inspection technologies to single or multiple remote processing and control locations within an organization, the software streamlines data analysis for food manufacturers, facilitating the demonstration of due diligence and product traceability.

ProdX’s intuitive on-screen user interface was developed to facilitate real-time remote access to data from a range of product inspection technologies, including checkweighers, metal detectors and x-ray inspection systems.

It also enables manufacturers to track their products through the manufacturing process, giving them access to information regarding product rejects and machine performance from all of the networked inspection systems. This allows operatives to undertake real-time corrective action for optimum processing line efficiency.

The user interface provides early warning of adverse product quality and machine performance to prevent product safety issues, such as foreign body contamination, before they become a problem.

ProdX also enables manufacturers to increase production uptime for maximum line efficiency.

In addition to these features, the advanced ProdX v1.2 provides data export functionality, including the ability to export records to a Comma Separated Values (CSV) or Extensible Markup Language (XML) file, enabling further data analysis for manufacturers.

The upgraded software also records x-ray images of non-conforming packs, for comprehensive inspection records. The defects identified by the system are then highlighted by the software, simplifying image analysis for the operative.

The programme is easy for manufacturers to install onto their systems, with no need for engineering or information technology (IT) support.

For companies that need the flexibility to manufacture a number of different products on the same line, ProdX 1.2 boosts flexibility by providing storage of product set up details for up an unlimited number of products.

Through the upgraded software, manufacturers can remotely set up product inspection systems on the production line saving time during the product changeover process and maximizing productivity.

“In this increasingly competitive market, manufacturers in food manufacturing and processing industry are looking for ways to maintain profit margins by boosting the efficiency of their production processes”, said Peter Spring, Product Manager, ProdX Inspect. “Networking product inspection systems helps to reduce downtime during product changeovers and machine maintenance, minimizing manufacturing costs”.

ProdX v1.2 will be showcased at FachPack 2013 in Nuremberg, Germany, 24-26 September 2013 in Hall 3, Stand 247 and 233.
