At Matt Brewing Company, attention to detail and uncompromising commitment to quality are the signature trademarks of the company and their award-winning Saranac beers. Concerned with accuracy and reliability, the company wanted to assure every customer receives a full can of beer every time, so they searched for a gamma fill level inspection system and instead, became the first brewer in the world to use this new checkweigher technology for 100 percent inspection.

"We were looking for a new fill level monitor for our canning line, but we were concerned about the reliability of many of the systems we saw," said Jim Kuhr, Director of Brewery Operations at Matt Brewing Company. "We visited Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed to look at the case weigher we had already committed to. While we were there, they showed us the CM9400 Canweigh. They gave us a quote and it was competitive.

We thought the Canweigh would be more accurate and more reliable than traditional fill level inspection systems. Compared to gamma systems, it would certainly be less of a headache from a regulatory point of view. And it had the capacity for our line."
