See it at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, Booth # C-2023! Mettler Toledo will launch the C35 VC Checkweighing System designed to accurately weigh vials, small bottles, and aerosols at throughputs of up to 300 ppm, in a weighing range of from 3 to 200 g at accuracies within 4 mg.
This includes containers measuring up to 100 mm in diameter.
The system is able to handle and weigh a wide variety of containers within this range with no required change of parts.
These capabilities position the C35 VC as the most effective checkweighing system available for efficient and accurate handling and weighing of challenging small vials and bottles of pharmaceutical products that require 100% reliable weight control. The system, for example, utilizes a positively-driven side transport mechanism to move containers smoothly on and off the weigh cell conveyor, eliminating trip points and enabling slim packaging as small as 14 mm in diameter to be accurately weighed.
At the heart of the C35 VC (and of all Mettler Toledo checkweighers) is electro-magnetic force restoration (EMFR) technology. EMFR load cells are capable of very small and precise measurements. They incorporate intelligent software tools that are capable of "learning" and thereby neutralizing interference from the checkweigher itself and surrounding equipment. They are also equipped with high-precision temperature sensors and temperature compensation software that together eliminate any potentially detrimental effects caused by temperature changes.
A range of optional conveyors and handling features, including guiderails to ensure smooth product handling of critical packaging and diverter arms to safely reject delicate glass packages, provides for the optimal movement of all products. The C35 VC system is operated from a 15-in. multilingual touchscreen HMI positioned in front of the conveyor for maximum accessibility and operator safety.
Simple and easy to operate, with features and configurations adaptable to a broad range of applications, the C35 VC provides positive ROI through increased efficiency, lower production costs, and reliable service. It enables companies to inspect 100% of their product, segregate non-conforming packages and collect production data using one of two optional Weight Data Interfaces.
The C35 VC is supported through an extensive global service network that fully recognizes cross-border contracts and ensures timely support, availability, and rapid delivery of spare parts. This reduces downtime and ensures that production runs smoothly, with minimal disruption.
