Food and pharmaceutical manufacturers and co-packers can attend the Product Inspection Open House at the new Global Headquarters for x-ray in person or virtually, participating in a range of seminars, technology demonstrations and consultation sessions.
Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection will showcase new product inspection technologies, offer opportunities for face-to-face and virtual consultations, and deliver educational seminar content, at an Open House event which will officially open the new Global Centre of Excellence for x-ray in Royston, Hertfordshire.
Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection’s new x-ray manufacturing facility in Royston, Hertfordshire sets the business up for continued expansion over the next decade and more.
Set across a 1.4-hectare site, it expands the company’s UK manufacturing footprint by more than 80%, enabling multiple development projects to be handled simultaneously.
The facility will also help to expand the customer experience, with new factory acceptance testing rooms and a production observation area.
The COVID-safe event will take place over 6th and 7th October 2021, giving brand owners, manufacturers and contract packers in food and pharmaceuticals the opportunity to experience the latest innovations and best practice in x-ray, metal detection, checkweighing and vision inspection, as well as discussing their specific product inspection needs and challenges with a Mettler-Toledo expert.
Manufacturers and contract packers can book a free personalised 1-2-1 consultation, either virtually or in-person, enabling their teams to tap into Mettler-Toledo’s expert knowledge of areas such as compliance, product safety and digitalisation.
Mettler-Toledo’s latest product innovations will take centre stage, with 1-2-1 customised live demonstrations of a new metal detection system, a new x-ray inspection machine as well as the latest C33 Series checkweighers with FlashCell™ load cells and demonstrations of our vision inspection solutions and ProdX™ data management software.
The event will also include two educational seminars, both running at 8am and 2pm (BST) on their respective days:
Wednesday 6th October
How Product Inspection Innovations Improve Food Safety and Automate Quality Processes for Contract Packers – co-hosted with ECPA, featuring Ton Knipscheer of the European Co-Packers Association (ECPA); Rob Rogers, Senior Advisor Food Safety & Regulation and Niall McRory, Global Key Account Manager both from Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection.
Thursday 7th October
Good Inspection Practice: 6 Steps to Preventing Physical Contamination – co-hosted with BRCGS, featuring John Figgins, Senior Technical Manager from the BRCGS; Ian Robertshaw, Global Key Account Manager and Adam Green, Market Manager both from Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection.
“We are really excited to officially open and showcase our new Global Centre of Excellence for x-ray inspection at our Product Inspection Open House event,” said Niall McRory, Global Key Account Manager at Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection.
“The new Global Headquarters has been specifically designed to become Mettler-Toledo’s main hub for x-ray research and development plus manufacturing x-ray innovations.
“The significant investment we have made into developing the x-ray business is part of our strategic business development plans and is in response to customer demands for us to continually design x-ray inspection technologies to improve packaged product safety.”
He added: “Meeting customers and prospects face-to-face has obviously been difficult over the last year and a half, and we are very much looking forward to interacting with them again at our October Open House event, either in person at our new Global Centre of Excellence or virtually.
“We’ve got a lot of game-changing new innovations to show them, as well as some inspirational educational opportunities to share. The challenges of product safety and operational efficiency remain front and centre for every manufacturer, and that’s where our focus will be during this event.
“Whether they are in food or pharma, there will be something for every customer and prospect at the Open House, so we hope they will mark the dates in their diaries.”
