When pre-packed meat and sausage company, Aldenhoven of Germany wanted to detect any very small particles of metal getting into its sausage meat from the production line, it could not find suitable metal detection and separation equipment that was both easy to use and reliable.

The Genius control unit is designed for quality control systems used in automatic processes and its auto-learn capability automatically adjusts for product changes.
