MD Packaging recently became the exclusive distributor across Canada for FT System, a division of AROL.  FT System was founded in 1998 and has become a leading supplier of container inspection and monitoring solutions. Their reputation for quality, reliability and customer satisfaction has made them the preferred supplier of inspection equipment to many of the leading manufacturers and system integrators in the food and beverage industry. Since their inception they have grown to become a global leader in inspection and control solutions with more than 3,000 installations in over 60 countries around the world.  In this newsletter we want to highlight some of their systems.

IT700 Vision System for Cap Inspection

The IT700 Vision System for Cap Inspection will detect cap defects on glass, plastic and metal containers.  The system uses two independent cameras to inspect each container at full production speeds.  The ergonomic design provides easy access to the control panel and supports fast tool-less change overs.  The system can be used for food, beverage, household chemical and personal care applications.  The IT700 is ideal for detecting high caps, cocked caps, missing caps, missing tamper bands and damaged tamper bands.

QT700 Vision System for Closure Inspection


The FT System QT700 Vision System will detect defects in plastic and metal closures prior to the closure being applied to the container.  The system uses cameras to inspect each closure at full production speeds.  The system will detect defective caps that may prevent proper container closure, affect the performance of the capper or create a jam in the cap chute.  It is ideal for detecting upside down cap, cap ovality, diameter error, missing or damaged tamper band, broken bridges that lead to deformation and gray tone deviation.

Multi Finger Standing Rejectors for Metal, Glass & Plastic Containers

The FT System series of high speed standing rejectors and diverters are designed to provide stable displacement of containers at production speeds up to 1,200 containers per minute.  The systems can be used to remove defective containers from the production line, divert containers to an alternate production line or remove containers for capper, seamer or filler sampling.  The multi finger systems are available in a range of sizes to support different application requirements.  The robust design is capable of supporting large containers.

PCS700-H20 Vacuum/Pressure Inspection System

The PCS700-H2O, Vacuum/Pressure Inspection System is ideal for measuring vacuum or pressure in transparent and semi-transparent glass and plastic containers with hot filled products including carbonated juice, tea, energy drink and other shelf stable products.


The system uses a laser to detect the vacuum or pressure by analyzing the gas in the headspace of the filled and sealed container.  The inspection is non-contact, non-destructive and capable of inspection speeds up to 1,200 containers per minute.  

Our partnership with FT System emphasizes MD Packaging's growing focus on Food Inspection Solutions complementing our already amazing line up of equipment including Mettler Toledo Hi-Speed and Safeline.
