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:
Keeping your bench and floor scales clean is critical and should be part of your sanitation program. Effective cleaning doesn't have to take a long time or be difficult.
The white paper "7 Points to Consider when Cleaning Your Scales", provides insights on how to speed up your process while maintaining cleaning effectiveness.
Matching obligations and business objectives to the most appropriate standard is complicated and time-consuming. This white paper keeps it simple by explaining and directly comparing BRC, IFS, SQF and FSSC 22000 – the four most frequently used GFSI recognized standards.
