Bunting has improved its meTRON 05 and 07 CI metal detectors. Its latest generation of closed loop tunnel-style metal detectors includes triple frequency signal processing in order to achieve greater sensitivities.

These new integrated controls enhance the imagePHASE platform that was previously offered. These controls allow the processor to learn a packaged food product in three different conditions, selecting the one that yields the greatest sensitivity. This allows the metal detectors to sense through layers of bagged or packaged material and pick out even the slightest fragment of metal that may linger as a contaminant.

The detector’s updated controls display expected sensitivities to the operator reflecting all three major metal types: ferrous, non-ferrous, and stainless steel. The units are also equipped with the autoTEST feature that verifies the detector’s sensitivities, and calibrations are being properly achieved without manually passing test blocks. The autoTEST is programmable for a variety of user-defined testing intervals and metal sizes.

“When metal fragments are found in packaged goods, the cost is money, customers, and reputations,” said Barry Voorhees, product manager of metal detection at Bunting. “The industry is demanding greater protection measures be put in place, and we are responding to those demands. We believe our customers will appreciate the new optional controls on our tunnel-style detectors that amplify metal-detection sensitivities, as well as our other new features such as USB interfaces for quality control logs and color touchscreens.”
