The modular design of the M30 R-Series GC can be adapted over time in line with evolving compliance and productivity needs.
The new systems are powered by Mettler-Toledo’s Sense digital platform, which allows them to deliver high sensitivity to all metal contaminant types with minimal false rejects.
Mike Bradley, metal detection systems product inspection specialist at Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection, described the Sense system as a game changer in the metal detection field.
“Just like a human brain, it commands the neural network within these digital inspection systems and integrated GC Series conveyors,” said Bradley.
Making its own judgements
“It takes control of the entire metal detection system to unprecedented levels, making judgements and decisions, learning all the time, and constantly harmonising and optimising every aspect of the operation.”
Dynamic Stability Control innovations stabilise the core sensor of the metal detector to help protect against environmental noise and vibration interference for increased reliability.
“Food processors, FMCG manufacturers and co-packers have long thought that to acquire advanced metal detection capabilities they would have to spend a lot of money on a high-end system,” continued Bradley.
“With the launch of our M30 R-Series metal detection systems, that is no longer the case. They can now invest in a smart, digital metal detection system that gives them highly advanced capabilities at an attractive price.
The M30 R-Series consists of four metal detector models matched to different production and compliance needs, and budget considerations:
- M31R StandardLine – for versatile, reliable inspection in all food segments; high frequency, tuned technology with eDrive that delivers up to 10% spherical sensitivity improvement over legacy models
- M33R PlusLine – enhanced performance with very high frequency tuned technology and eDrive to deliver an up to 20% improvement in spherical sensitivity performance, ideal for dry applications such as cereal bars, dry pasta, confectionery and snacks
- M33RB PlusLine – enhanced performance with very high frequency tuned technology and eDrive, combined with optimised case / coil geometry to deliver up to 30% improved spherical sensitivity performance in bulk applications such as crates of meat and 25kg sacks of flour
- M34R PlusLine – enhanced performance using Dual-Simultaneous Frequency and Product Signal Suppression technology to improve spherical sensitivity performance by up to 25% and reduce false rejects in wet or conductive applications; tailored to wet, challenging and conductive applications such as meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, products with high salt content and those packed in metallized film
“Alongside the intelligent inspection capability, they will also benefit from the robust reliability that Mettler-Toledo is renowned for, as well as being certain that their investment is future-proofed and able to develop with their own needs,” Bradley added. “This is next-generation metal detection that will protect their brand, their processes and their profits.”
