We can provide in line throat metal or post packing
detection. Throat metal detection is the ideal solution for inspecting
food products packed by vertical form fill and seal packaging machines.
The detector is placed between the weigher and bagging
machine to inspect the in - flight product just before it enters
the bag. This method of inspection is the ideal solution for checking
food products normally wrapped in metallised packaging material
e.g. snackfoods and confectionery.
On detection of contaminants the metal detector can signal the packaging
machine to stop, make a double bag or alternatively an automatic
reject device can be positioned down line.
The post packaging detection process would consist of an inline conveyor / meteal detector unit. Once the product has been packed by the bagging machine, it will travel along a conveyor and pass through the metal detection unit. Generally, the metal detection unit has a reject bin and these can be processed manually.
