X-ray system can do it allAdvanChek combines the functions of X-ray inspection, metal detection and checkweighing in a single system. Unique low-energy operation allows AdvanChek to find metal contaminants inside metal packaging, as well as traditional X-ray targets like bone, stones and glass fragments. The system can “learn” proper product density and flag over- or under-filled products. The color touchscreen is sophisticated yet intuitive. The system is built to NEMA 12 washdown specs and can be upgraded to NEMA 4X. Mettler-Toledo Safeline, 800-447-4439
On-Pack promotional labeling attracts shoppersMany food and beverage processors are using on-pack promotional labels to encourage consumer participation and to minimize theft and losses that can occur when promotions are distributed by store personnel. Bell Inc. ensures the security of its promotional label manufacturing and application to packages through authorized-only access areas, laser-beam barriers, special teams trained for each project, closed-circuit TV system throughout the plant, 24x7 security officers, two-way mirrors, secure waste processing and ongoing training. In addition, sequential labeling enables the tracking of each package throughout distribution and sale. In spite of these extensive investments, label manufacturing and application is cost effective and sustainable. Bell has achieved a label waste percentage of less than 1%, as measured in an independent audit by Promotion Watch, a national promotions security firm. This results in huge savings for Bell, its customers and, of course, the environment.
