The new Mettler Toledo CM33 CombiChecker product inspection system integrates two key inspection functions into a single compact system. First, products pass through a metal detector, then are weighed on a checkweigher. Products detected to be contaminated with metal, or that are beyond weight parameters, are immediately rejected from the production line into separate reject bins for each defect, eliminating the possibility of them entering the marketplace.
The CM33 allows companies to customize this system by selecting from a variety of available options to match the needs of the specific operation where it will be used. These include selecting from a range of checkweigher and metal detector options from Mettler Toledo. In addition, a selection of available conveyors, guide rails, transfer plates, dual locking reject bins, and rejector types are available to ensure safe and secure handling of virtually any package type.
These mechanical features are then complemented with choices from a complete library of line integration, functional and operational, production monitoring and control, and communication options. This enables end users to customize the CM33’s security, performance, and data capabilities to meet the requirements of the relevant industry, customer and application, creating a completely customized checkweighing and metal detection solution.
The checkweigher and metal detector set up and configuration are done at the checkweigher control panel, saving time and space and simplifying the operation. Product changeovers result in each inspection device automatically adapting to stored parameters for the new package. Easily customized from standard modules, this dual function system can be adapted to suit the specific requirements of any food, personal care or pharmaceutical production line.
