Include the metal detectors in your machine maintenance program – Choose a qualified company for the maintenance, which gives you a guarantee of an optimal operation of your detector. Integrate the detector calibration in this maintenance service. Continue reading “Tips for an optimal operation of your metal control program”

Training on the metal detection procedure
The performance of the metal detection task is a crucial step and implicates a big responsibility. In the case of failures, there is a chance that contaminated products will reach the consumers. Continue reading “Training on the metal detection procedure”
The orientation effect
The orientation effect appears in the case of metal bodies in the form of a needle or a thread. In one direction they are detected, but not in the perpendicular direction. Depending on the materials (ferrous and non-ferrous), the effect is opposite. Continue reading “The orientation effect”
And what are the other sources of failures?
In a daily situation, there are other sources of failures that must not be underestimated. These failures may be the cause of contaminated products arriving at your consumers. Continue reading “And what are the other sources of failures?”
What does it take to ensure a proper operation of your metal detection program?
When your process runs smoothly without interruptions, you have less chance of fails in the metal detection system. Interruptions can negatively affect the reliability of your detection system: Continue reading “What does it take to ensure a proper operation of your metal detection program?”
The detection on products packed in metallised packages
Products packed in metallised packages are obviously more complex to detect. With a few modifications of your process it will be possible. To exclude any contamination of your product, you can do the following modifications: Continue reading “The detection on products packed in metallised packages”
What to do with the rejected products?
The rejected products are collected in a closed bin. Only authorised employees have access to this bin. Continue reading “What to do with the rejected products?”
How to place the test pieces at the most difficult place to be detected?
The test pieces will be placed on or inside the product, in such a way, that the test piece passes through the centre of the opening of the detector. Think about the following points to establish a good test: Continue reading “How to place the test pieces at the most difficult place to be detected?”
What is used for metal detection
The metal detector will be placed in your production line. All products pass through the detector and are inspected. Contaminated products will be rejected. Continue reading “What is used for metal detection”
The metallic foreign bodies prevention program
Ce programme fait partie de la politique des corps étrangers. Mais dans cette série le focus est orienté sur les corps métalliques. Quels sont les éléments qui consistent à minimiser la contamination métallique ? Continue reading “The metallic foreign bodies prevention program”
