Mettler Toledo Vision Inspection System Combines Thorough inspection, Convenient Installation and Maximum Throughput
CI-Vision’s most affordable, most adaptable system to date, the V6300 provides a machine vision solution that supports up to five cameras, ten lights and powerful software that can perform multiple inspections of a target package simultaneously—for ID/OD, ovality, gross formation defects, label positioning, label quality, closure application, fill level, 1D and 2D bar codes, graphical presence and quality, and the presence and verification of alphanumeric codes.
The V6300 quickly adapts to higher speeds and product changeovers to ensure that 100% of the products leaving a facility have been inspected for defects. The V6300 can be programmed to send automatic shutdown signals to the production line after a set number of consecutive or patterned failures, reducing the amount of wasted material.
The V6300 runs on CI-Vision’s CIVCore® Software, which analyzes high-resolution images at speeds of up to 1000 parts per minute (ppm). The intuitive touchscreen menu enables rapid product changeovers—four touches of the screen accomplish the preprogrammed changes of lights and cameras to inspect new parts. The software’s architecture enables training of new parts quickly and adding new inspections without sacrificing production time. The software stores all trained parts for easy retrieval, and stores images of rejected items for later review. A powerful statistics suite allows manufacturers to track failure rates and identify process weaknesses.
The V6300 is available in two configurations: a kit configuration, including the control terminal, lights, lenses, cameras and product tracking sensor suite, or the V6300 Rapid Fit™, which includes the Rapid Fit frame system, allowing for quick installation around the production line. Rapid Fit frame bars can be cut to length and quickly assembled, and adjustable camera mounts simplify adjustment for different package sizes. Around-the-line design eliminates the need to reconfigure existing lines to install the V6300, and the installation process can take as little as an hour.

While standard X-ray inspection systems use powerful generators to inspect products, the X36 Series uses highly sensitive X-ray detectors that require a less powerful (20 watt) generator to produce the same results, making it the most en-ergy-efficient X-ray system on the market. Its robust, hygienic design also makes it a reliable choice even in harsh washdown environments.
Ideal for inspecting small, medium and large products, the X36 Series systems offer outstanding detection of contaminants that include metal, glass, mineral stone, calcified bone and high-density plastic and rubber. In addition to detecting contaminants, the systems also simultaneously offer product integrity checks such as measuring gross and zoned mass, counting components and checking the integrity of seal, guaranteeing all-round product quality. These capabilities result in safety and product quality benefits for both the manufacturer and its customers.
Today’s regulatory bodies and consumers alike are focused on product safety and on protection of the environment through reducing energy use. The X36 Series inspection systems directly address both of these concerns.

Multi-simultaneous frequency technology achieves the highest levels of detection sensitivities by analyzing product signal data captured across a wide spectrum of frequencies simultaneously. This is processed by Mettler Toledo 3S software algorithm in real time, which results in a 30% to 50% higher sensitivity than competing technologies.
In addition, Product Signal Suppression virtually eliminates the incidence of false triggering by suppressing the active and unwanted product signals often produced during inspection of high-moisture products. The benefits to the user are lower running costs and a dramatic reduction in product waste.
This new technology makes the Profile Advantage an extremely valuable inspection tool for products such as meat, dairy and bakery products that contain a high degree of moisture––a condition that triggers many false rejects in conventional metal detectors. The traditional solution to this problem has been to set the sensitivity of the metal detector lower to eliminate false rejects, thereby limiting its ability to detect all contaminants. By suppressing those false signals, the Profile Advantage inspects products at full sensitivity, ensuring more effective inspection and maximizing product safety.
Profile Advantage metal detectors incorporate advanced Condition Monitoring as standard. Condition Monitoring technology assesses the performance and operation of key detector components and circuitry. Adverse trends or changes in performance that can potentially cause system downtime are signaled, giving operators advanced warning before a problem occurs. When fitted with Mettler Toledo's optional Due Diligence Enhancement Software Package, Profile Advantage can provide an even higher level of system integrity that delivers total system performance and ensures the highest level of metal detection
