ATS Webinar - How to overcome common testing challenges in throat and gravity fall metal detectors to achieve optimal results.
In this Automatic Test System (ATS) webinar, we discuss the challenges faced by users of Throat (VFFS) and Gravity Fall Metal Detectors on how to truly confirm centerline (worst case) sensitivity of their metal detectors when conducting performance monitoring tests.
Traditional manual testing methods for these systems are inherently flawed. This due to the random nature of where the test sample falls within the aperture. Often, the worst-case sensitivity performance is not tested at all, leaving you open to risks of product recalls. Difficulties in accessing equipment during routine performance monitoring testing are a further complication.
In this practical ATS webinar, we demonstrate a new metal detector testing innovation - ATS, which delivers tangible benefits to improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and make compliance easier to achieve. Put simply, ATS minimizes the downtime created by routine performance testing, improves operator safety and makes it easier to achieve compliance.
Metal detector testing is essential for any food producer, however performance testing of your equipment can add pressure by stopping production lines, as well as wasting product during the testing process. This is both costly and time consuming.
We discuss the options available for throat and gravity fall metal detector testing and we shine a light on 4 different test methods. In this ATS webinar, we compare existing manual test methods against a revolutionary new testing method using an Automatic Test System (ATS).
In this ATS webinar, we explain how this innovative technology helps confirm your metal detector is actually working as it should, and when integrated with ProdX, test data and results can be automatically recorded for audit compliance. ATS helps minimise downtime time due to routine performance testing, improves operator safety and makes it easier to achieve compliance.
ATS is a non-invasive test method which removes the risk of cross contamination associated with at least 2 of the traditional manual test methods. For some applications, e.g. infant formula, this can be absolutely critical.
ATS enables 3 or 4 metal tests for FE, Non-Fe, and SS as standard and optionally aluminium – and end-to-end testing can be completed in less than 60 seconds.
For increased band protection in vertical packaging applications, having ATS present can improve productivity by reducing the time taken to conduct routine performance tests by up to 80 percent. ATS eliminates the random nature of Gravity and Throat Metal Detector testing by providing a controlled and repeatable process. Moreover, it also enhances operator safety by reducing or virtually eliminating the need to work at height or reach across equipment to conduct routine performance tests as well as improve process quality by enhancing repeatability of test processes.
The Automatic Test System supports you in meeting compliance needs, whilst increasing productivity and improving product quality.
