Weighing Convenience at the Fresh Counter: METTLER TOLEDO Adds New Options to FreshWay Vario

Gießen, 5 March 2017 – At EuroShop 2017 (Hall 6, Booth E61) METTLER TOLEDO is revealing the new options for its modular touchscreen counter scale FreshWay Vario (FreshWay V) for the very first time. Visitors can see the FreshWay V Flat Edition including an extra-flat weighing plate as well as the new linerless printer for hygienic wrapping and labeling.

By adding these new options, METTLER TOLEDO has further extended its concept of a modular touchscreen counter scale that combines ergonomics with process optimization. Thanks to its extra-flat CWP weighing plate, the Flat Edition model of FreshWay V gives counter employees even more freedom of movement and easier access to the fresh product displays. The separate computing unit can be invisibly integrated into the counter. Just like the standard version, the Flat Edition of FreshWay V requires no irreversible structural changes to the counter design.

Technological Upgrade for the FreshWay Line
Besides releasing new options for FreshWay V, METTLER TOLEDO has also further improved the hardware of the entire FreshWay line. Both FreshWay Vario and FreshWay Tower now come equipped with robust capacitive touchscreens that offer impressive touch sensitivity and durability. Thanks to the frameless design of the displays, they are extremely hygienic and easy to clean. The new high-performance processors and extended RAM storage open up new opportunities for retailers to deploy sales-boosting digital signage campaigns at the point of sale (POS). The new hardware is also powerful enough to handle ­data-intensive promotional and branding campaigns with ease. FreshWay Vario is compatible with the arms and mounting systems from Ergonomic Solutions.

Background: FreshWay V
FreshWay V was presented for the first time at EuroCIS 2016. The modular touchscreen scale gives food retailers more freedom to tailor the design of their fresh counters in order to optimize customer service­. With FreshWay V, the touchscreen operator­ display, customer display, printer unit, and weighing ­plate are all individual elements that can be placed­ anywhere. This makes it extremely easy­ for grocery retailers to align the weighing and POS activities with the space and circumstances at each specific counter and to optimize employee access to the fresh product display.
