Teaming up to create greater process safety through connectivity

13 May 2014

Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection has teamed up with GE Intelligent Platforms in a strategic partnership to provide food and pharmaceutical manufacturers with innovative and comprehensive product connectivity solutions.

The first product of the partnership - a solution to connect GE Intelligent Platforms' Proficy software to Mettler-Toledo’s product inspection technologies - was on display for the first time at Interpack. 

The collaboration is said to provide a real-time, end-to-end view of the entire food safety and manufacturing operation, allowing manufacturers to take proactive steps to avoid safety issues before they happen, helping to enhance efficiency and productivity, while ensuring compliance with food safety standards. 

GE Intelligent Platforms’ Industrial Internet technology has been pre-configured to interface with Mettler-Toledo’s technologies, collecting food safety KPIs from product inspection systems throughout the production line, to be stored in one easy-access location. 

This enables real-time data about the operational performance of the entire production process to be viewed, giving engineers the tools to improve productivity while upholding product safety in line with guidelines such as International Featured Standards (IFS).
