A metal detection system can represent a significant capital investment. Equipment must be designed for the intended application and used in an effective manner to ensure ROI. A solid metal detection program can reduce incidents of broken machinery and resulting output loss when metal items are discovered before processing. Perhaps more importantly, a metal detection program can reduce litigation risk and monetary brand image costs when tarnished products are discovered after delivery.
A well-designed metal detection program must focus on good manufacturing practices, correct equipment selection, proper installation and consideration of equipment in a broader foreign body/metal detection program.
