The requirement to carry out periodic testing of metal detectors to ensure performance is maintained is well-known to those involved in food manufacturing. For producers with high volume, dry snack food, bakery & confectionary, or powdered product applications who are looking to improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), new technology developed for the range of METTLER TOLEDO Safeline Profile Throat and Gravity Fall metal detectors eliminates up to 83%* of performance monitoring requirements.
This article highlights how the latest innovations improve your business productivity and reduce operational costs, protect your brand reputation and enhance the overall quality of the products you make. It also explains how using the latest METTLER TOLEDO Safeline throat metal detectors and gravity fall metal detection systems delivers an additional benefit of enhancing worker safety.
The period of time between metal detector tests can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and is dependent on the application, processes employed and time between manufacture and distribution. METTLER TOLEDO Safeline's new Reduced Test (RT) feature enables less frequent routine performance monitoring tests, reduces product waste and improves operator efficiency to increase manufacturing uptime.
RT is an analytical monitoring tool that has been developed within a Predictive Analytics framework.
In some cases, depending on the testing protocol undertaken by your business, this can lead to significant uptime advantages, improved overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and therefore cost savings – all highly desirable attributes in today’s demanding production environments.
To facilitate additional productivity gains, make it easier to meet compliance requirements and improve data management capabilities, Safeline Profile Throat metal detectors and Gravity Fall metal detection systems are compatible with ProdX Inspection software.
Reducing the risk of product recalls is essential for all food manufacturers in order to minimise the costs associated with such an event, but also to protect hard won brand reputation. The latest latest Profile Throat metal detectors and Gravity fall metal detection systems for dry product applications now feature eDrive technology as standard to support this aim.
With greater confidence that GFSI and retailer codes of practice can be easily met or surpassed, the risk to your business and its brand of contaminated product reaching the consumer is mitigated still further. In addition your new Profile metal detector will be future proofed for longer, making your return on investment calculations more attractive.
The latest Profile Throat metal detectors and Gravity Fall metal detection systems can improve both product and process quality.
Manufacturers are under increasing pressure to provide ever safer working environments for their employees. The latest Profile metal detectors for vertical packing applications from METTLER TOLEDO Safeline can contribute to safer working practices in food manufacturing environments.
