MESUTRONIC has released the Aluscan metal detector for detecting smaller metal contaminant sizes, as small as 0.8mm in diameter, within aluminum wrapped products.
For increased operation, the control system is now located separately, making it more user friendly and easier to work with.
The metal detector only detects “the rest-magnetism”, this ensures reliable detection of even the smallest stainless steel and ferrous metal contamination of products packed in aluminium.
The products presented for inspection travel along the Aluscan conveyor through a permanent magnet, where it is magnetised and carried over the magnetic sensor bed.
For products over 50mm, an additional sensor can be placed above the product, to ensure an accurate level of detection.
As aluminum cannot be magnetised, the magnetic sensors do not “see” the aluminium packaging. Therefore any products contaminated with ferrous and/or stainless steel are detected and automatically rejected by the reject mechanism, without interrupting the production process.
The complete system has been designed to be compact and consists of magnet, conveyor, metal sensor and reject mechanism, and can be easily integrated into almost any production line.
