Mettler-Toledo Safeline Launches Educational Web Site

October 14, 2008
Mettler-Toledo Safeline, a leader in metal detection and x-ray inspection equipment, has launched an improved educational Web site designed to share information, solutions, and ideas about detecting physical contaminants in products spanning a number of industries.

The site, www.contaminationdetection.com, discusses topics and issues important to those in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, plastics, chemicals, and packaging industries. The idea behind the site is to offer an educational forum in which those from all affected industries can come together to learn about solving problems and achieving solutions.

Contaminationdetection.com features news stories of interest to manufacturers and retailers relating to product contamination including recalls, as well as information on governmental regulations. It includes stories on the company’s training programs, expert Q&A postings with key company leaders, case studies and testimonials, and stories on the company’s educational and training sessions. The site also showcases how-to articles and inspection tips across the various industries. Visitors can post comments and exchange ideas.

The online news and educational portal is viewed as an integral part of relaying Mettler-Toledo Safeline’s critical message of food and product safety. “This educational Web site is the first of its kind to offer straight advice without pushing products or the company,” says Oscar Jeter of Mettler-Toledo Safeline.  “It’s a completely innovative and neutral site.”

A semimonthly e-newsletter is part of the company’s latest educational initiative and will be mailed to subscribers. Content will include daily highlights from the site.

Visitors wanting more information specific to their companies will find links to connect them to Mettler’s team and its state-of-the-art products, software solutions, and services.
