·Food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry
The Importance of On-site Traceability
In recent years, when a product recall is in the news, being able to trace the faulty part back through the production process is a major factor in solving the problem and preventing it re-occurring. This insightful guide contains information about traceability types and solutions.
Introducing an Ultra-large, Wide-stage Instant Measurement System
With a stage six times larger than that of conventional products, it is possible to measure large components that were previously unmeasurable. Batch measurements are also possible by loading multiple measurement objects of the same shape onto the expanded stage.
