Nänikon, Switzerland — METTLER TOLEDO has published a comprehensive Food Productivity Guide for all food and beverage manufacturers. Developed as a food process and equipment selection reference tool, each section of the Guide provides valuable insights and best practices with the potential to significantly improve a company’s bottom line.
Topics covered include filling, batching, checkweighing, and inspection techniques such as x-ray, metal detection and final product package vision. “Weighing and measuring are crucial in many of these process steps. Selecting the right technology and inspection methods—and making sure they can be easily integrated into a company’s existing MES/ERP systems—are key to increased efficiency and therefore bigger profit margins,” noted Urs Berli, Market Manager Food, METTLER TOLEDO.
The 14-topic, cross-referenced Guide supports a manufacturer’s ability to make informed assessments of what it is doing that works — as well as determine when a capital investment may be the best bet for further process enhancement. Key weighing, inspection, and measuring-based process optimization benefits include more precise material transfer, efficient tracking & tracing, reproducible formulation & batching, consistent filling, and increased throughput in both automated and manual processes.
