Minebea Intec at interpack 2023

New weighing and inspection solutions for more efficient production
Minebea Intec, a major manufacturer of weighing and inspec-tion technologies, will be presenting its products and innova-tions at interpack 2023. The company will be attending the leading trade fair for the packaging industry from 4 to 10 May and presenting its solutions which help manufacturers to increase their product safety and efficiency.

With systems for visual product inspection, like the VisioPointer®, through to a new checkweigher, the company is expecting to generate a lot of interest. The checkweigher Flexus®, which is also available as a high-speed version, will be on display along with the X-ray inspection system Dylight. These products, which together formulate a complete efficient production process, will be on show for attendees to discover the range of features on offer. Visitors to the stand will also be able to see the company’s established, high-precision products live alongside new innovations. This includes the automatic weigh price labeller WPL-A, which provides a complete pack-age for customers in the food industry.
These days, flexible and efficient production processes are digital and interconnected. However, face-to-face interaction is now firmly back on the agenda and Minebea Intec is looking forward to taking advantage of this opportunity at interpack after a six-year hiatus due to the coronavirus crisis. Industry 4.0 is a key focus and with its smart weighing and inspection technologies, the Ham-burg-based company provides optimal solutions to take produc-tion lines to a whole new level. This means that Minebea Intec’s products are perfectly aligned with the key topics at interpack 2023, which will be focusing on the best possible performance, sustainability and digitalisation. From checkweighers, metal de-tectors, and X-ray inspection systems, to platform scales and the applicable software solutions, through to the new automated image processing technology: visitors to Minebea Intec’s stand at the trade fair can look forward to expert advice to help make their production processes even more efficient.
Optical inspection for quality assurance of pac-kaged products
With its new range of vision systems, Minebea Intec is adding a fourth pillar of quality assurance pro-ducts in the form of a range of end-of-line inspec-tion devices. Those who visit the stand at inter-pack 2023 will be able to experience the Visio-Pointer® live. With three cameras as standard, multiple lighting options and optional side and sat-ellite cameras for multi-angle inspection, the pro-duct delivers high-precision results when checking labels, print or the expiry date. It also provides reli-able seal inspection. This is an extremely important visual quality check in the food industry, as the pro-duct’s expiry date is only valid if the packaging is absolutely leak-tight. “The seal inspection is per-formed by cameras and is fast, non-destructive and configurable,” says Dr Thorsten Vollborn, Senior Product Management for Product Inspection at Mi-nebea Intec. “Conventional methods do not offer these advantages. We are proud to now be able to integrate this outstanding solution into our custom-ers’ production processes.” The machine is also capable of product inspection such as bruising and blood spots in salmon, bread bake colouration and dimensioning, and shape recognition for products like biscuits in variety packs. For hard to see appli-cations, hyperspectral cameras can be used to dis-tinguish between products.
Automatic weigh price labeller saves time and space
Alongside this new inspection technology, Minebea Intec will also be sharing its expertise and experience from over 150 years in industrial weighing with visitors to its stand at the trade fair. Be-fore products are sent for shipping, they often need to be labelled in some way. The automatic weigh price labeller WPL-A is a reli-able solution for products which have variable weights such as cheese, meat or fish. This not only facilitates product tracing, it also increases throughput and productivity. The WPL-A meets directives and standards such as the Measuring Instruments Di-rective (MID) and the National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) of the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM). The system is produced in Europe to the highest quality standards and offers maximum modularity and connectivity. The device is the ideal automatic labelling system and can be configured to in-dividual requirements to meet all kinds of challenges.
Checkweighers: easy operation combined with
high-resolution weighing technology
In the checkweigher range, Minebea Intec will be presenting its Essentus® Performance L Combi, the latest version of one of its best-sellers. The innovative design combines the checkweigher Essentus® Performance L and the metal de-tector Vistus® in one base frame. This makes the system extremely compact and highly efficient. The combi system is used to check weights, perform integrity checking, control upstream filling systems, and check for metallic foreign ob-jects at the same time. The Essentus® Performance L Combi is also verifiable and features a stainless steel conveyor sys-tem, which is ideal for meeting hygienic requirements, par-ticularly for wet applications or unpackaged products.
