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:
Find out the potential sources of error that could occur when weighing a sample and how to avoid them by improving the business process or workflow. This white paper focusses on error reduction, improvements in data integrity and quality, and laboratory efficiency, whilst using an analytical balance.
This new white paper explains the ISO 9001:2015 changes and provides guidance on compliance with the new risk-based process.
