Erie, PA - With upgrades and maintenance work performed by Eriez' 5-Star Service Center, industrial metal detectors in virtually all styles and applications can now last longer and operate more effectively and efficiently. The Center is located in Lake City, PA. and is staffed with trained service technicians to expertly handle even the toughest service projects.

Metal detectors are used to pinpoint nonferrous metals—usually brass, aluminum and stainless steel—in various applications to enhance product purity. Routine maintenance and inspection, particularly on metal detectors' electronic boards, keep the units operating at peak efficiency.
