Foreign body detection at PPMA  2017

Minebea Intec has said it will present its full product portfolio for foreign body detection including metal detection and x-ray systems at PPMA 2017. A new x-ray inspection system, Dymond Bulk,  will be unveiled at the  show in Birmingham, UK. The  inspection system has been developed specifically with bulk goods in mind, and is particularly suitable for processes between incoming goods and packaging lines in the food industry.

Dymond Bulk  not only identifies foreign bodies made from metal, plastic and stone, but also bits of dirt and glass, which has obvious benefits for all goods that are introduced into the production process “straight from the field”.

Dymond Bulk  is said to be user friendly. A conscious effort has been made to simplify the complex technology for the user: from real-time detection via colour-based contamination analysis, through to straightforward belt replacement and an easy-to-clean inspection system. When it comes to processing granulated raw materials and foodstuffs, Minebea Intec offers another reliable checkpoint in the form of the Freefall Metal Detection System Vistus. This modular detection system can be equipped with tubes and rejection devices that are suitable even for dusty products or granules. It detects and eliminates all metal foreign bodies including ferrous, non-ferrous and even non-magnetic stainless steels.

The real highlight of the Freefall Metal Detection System is the “True In-Process Validation”. Here, test pieces can be introduced via a lockable slot using an applicator. This process enables proper performance validation - in the center of the search coil and centrally to the production process.

For inspection of packaged food Minebea Intec also offers combination systems such as the in-line checkweigher Synus combined with the metal detector Vistus, the so called Co-Synus.
