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 v1.2optimises product inspection data collection and monitoringto meet food safety demands. Enabling the connection of Mettler-Toledo's inspection technologies to single or multiple remote processing and controllocations within an organisation, the software streamlines data analysis for food manufacturers, facilitating the demonstration of due diligence and product traceability.
ProdX's intuitive on-screen userinterface 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 operativesto 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 recordsto a Comma Separated Values (CSV) or Extensible Markup Language (XML) file, enabling further data analysis for manufacturers. The upgraded software alsorecordsx-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 ontotheir 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 canremotely set up product inspection systems on the production line saving time during the product changeover process and maximising 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, minimising manufacturing costs".
