Matthews' new capabilities in check-weighing and labelling systems, as well as inspection systems, mean it can now deliver more value to existing and new customers to code, mark, weigh, label and inspect products.

The iDSnet-compatible technologies improve Matthews' offerings in the logistics, fresh produce and grocery sectors.

Matthews Australasia has added further capability in identification and inspection, with a range of check-weighing and labelling systems, as well as inspection systems, made in Germany by Bizerba.

The technologies which Matthews will launch at Auspack PLUS are: check-weighers; weigh-price labellers; weigh labellers; vision systems; and metal-detection systems.

MD Lester Nichol said: "Overall, this expands our capabilities and enables us to offer our existing customers even more integrated identification and inspection solutions. It gives us the ability to offer enhanced solutions in the logistics, fresh produce and grocery sectors.

"By adding metal detectors and extending vision capability, it opens up a new inspection market for us, and means we can now code, mark, weigh, label and inspect products."

Mark Dingley, general manager of operations, said: "With our strong integration and software capability, this new product range, like all our existing identification products, integrates with Matthews' iDSnet software solutions, delivering better results and integration capabilities for our customers."

The range includes stand-alone manual check weighers for weight-based marking with an integrated database. Matthews can seamlessly integrate a scales connection into its high-performance range of intelligent weighing, information and communication technology.

The check-weigh labelling systems consist of compact, fully automatic labellers that can be used as stand-alone machines with manual feed, but also integrate into existing automated production lines for fully automatic weigh and weigh-price labelling.

This range is from Bizerba, a leading global solutions-provider that offers professional system solutions in scale, label, information and food-service technologies, across retail, the food industry, production and logistics.
