Performance monitoring of metal detection equipment is essential to ensure it continues to work as it should. However, when it comes to testing vertical metal detectors inspecting free-falling product, this often involves stopping production, or wasting good product, both of which can have a negative impact on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
Production downtime hurts the bottom line. With schedules often tight due to high demand, every stoppage represents lost production capacity and the potential for additional problems elsewhere. The frequency of routine tests for metal detectors is an area where 'acceptable' downtime can be significantly improved.
This application note, ‘Reduce the frequency of metal detector testing and reap the benefits’, looks at how the latest innovations in metal detection technology can help manufacturers to:
Conformity in packaged food is a big challenge for food manufacturers. There is an increasing demand to produce consistent, high quality and safe products to meet legislative obligations, brand requirements and customer expectations. A new white paper has been published which explores this in detail, and provides guidance for packaged food manufacturers on how they can achieve conformity on their production line – every time.
