Mettler-Toledo, Inc.
1900 Polaris Pky.
Columbus, OH, 43240

Press release date: December 5, 2007

Tampa, Florida, December 5, 2007 - Mettler-Toledo Safeline, Inc., the worldwide leader in metal detection and x-ray inspection equipment, introduces its Mobile Training Platform - a customized motor coach with a variety of Safeline metal detectors and x-ray inspection equipment that travels throughout the United States year-round visiting food and pharmaceutical processing plants. With this convenient training opportunity, the mobile training platform enables processors and packagers to easily gain hands-on experience with the very latest in product inspection technology for their plants.

Onboard the bus, Safeline features two x-ray inspection units and four metal detectors. The new AdvanChek is a powerful yet economical x-ray inspection unit that detects multiple contaminants such as metal, stone, bone, glass, and dense plastics. The innovative PowerChekPlus x-ray inspection unit detects and rejects many contaminants, as well as scans for missing or broken product, detects package voids and confirms fill levels to guarantee product and package integrity. Both systems utilize Safeline's unique low energy x-ray technology that is unmatched in the industry for sensitivity and simplicity.

Safeline's metal detectors on board include two conveyorized units of differing frequencies that detect and eliminate metal contamination in a wide variety of packaged and loose products. The new PowerPhasePRO metal detector offers three frequency operation, one-pass automatic set-up and a touch screen interface. The PowerPhasePLUS, an ultra-high-frequency metal detector, is able to operate in excess of 800kHz and offers increased sensitivity, particularly to non-ferrous and stainless steel contaminants.

The Pipeline metal detector, designed for slurries, pumped liquids and semi-solids, is constructed from heavy gauge stainless steel and rated to NEMA 4X standards to stand up to extreme processing and washdown environments.

The pharmaceutical Tablex metal detector for inspection of tablets and capsules zeros in on tramp metal from broken screens, sieves, worn punches, dies or bulk raw materials and automatically rejects the contaminated pharmaceutical tablets and capsules. Maximizing flexibility, this detector utilizes Safeline's unique triple axis detection head that offers tool-free adjustment to fit any press output configuration.

In addition to a comprehensive training program, the mobile training platform offers interactive machine and product testing demonstrations. Visit for details about when the bus will be in a city near you.
