Mettler Toledo Safeline X-ray wins Queen’s Award for Innovation

07 May 2017

In recognition of the technical design of its X-series of food and pharmaceutical X-ray systems, Mettler Toledo Safeline X-ray has been awarded its second Queen’s Award for Enterprise, in the category of innovation. 

The X-ray system is said to offer benefits for manufacturers when installed on production lines. Reduced power consumption, for example, leads to direct energy savings, while enhanced sensitivity to detect physical contaminants such as glass, calcified bone, mineral stone, glass, ceramic, dense plastic and rubber compounds boosts brand protection and helps protect against product recalls. The ability to perform a number of other quality control functions in addition to contaminant detection, such as fill level inspection, mass measurement and component counts adds further value, as these tasks can be carried out in-line simultaneously, without the need to slow production line speeds.

Commenting on the award, Anthony Darragh, product engineering head at Mettler Toledo Safeline X-ray, said: “We are delighted to have been honoured with this award. It is great recognition for all of the team at Safeline X-ray, who have been instrumental in creating and launching the X-Series product line up. The innovation category is always fiercely competitive and the Award is testament to the team’s ability to anticipate and overcome the challenges that our customers are presented with in the field of product inspection.”
