Safeline wins Innovation Award

Related tags: Award, Awards

Mettler-Toledo Safeline, supplier of metal detection systems, has been awarded a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise, this time in the Innovation category, for developing its family of Profile metal detection products.

The company’s most recent innovation – and the primary focus of the Queen’s Award – is the launch of the Profile Advantage metal detection system, which overcomes ‘product effect’ to detect more metal in challenging applications.

The new detector delivers up to 50% improved detection capabilities, and use of these improved metal detectors allows users to meet or exceed food safety standards while avoiding inefficient and costly false rejects.

The industry standard is to use detectors tuned to a single radio frequency. In contrast, Safeline has developed signal generation and processing techniques to deploy tuned, variable and dual-frequency detectors.

The 2016 award follows the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade presented to the company in 2012.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a prestigious awards programme for British businesses and organisations that excel at trade, innovation or sustainable development.

To be awarded the honour in the Innovation category, a company must demonstrate outstanding commercial success as a result of innovation over multiple years.

“This award recognises the deep expertise of the Safeline team and its reputation for the design and manufacture of technologically advanced metal detectors,”​ says Alan Purvis, md of Mettler-Toledo Safeline.

“With 100,000 systems installed globally, we have accumulated thousands of man-years of experience, which allows us to continuously improve our products and processes.”
