Reduzieren Sie das Testen von Metalldetektoren und profitieren Sie von den Vorteilen / Reduce Metal Detector Testing and Reap the Benefits

Lebensmittelhersteller stehen unter erheblichem Druck, die Produktivit√§t zu steigern, Lebensmittel- verschwendung zu reduzieren und strenge Lebensmittelsicherheitsstandards einzuhalten. Gl√ľcklicherweise stehen aktuelle Innovationen von Mettler-Toledo zur Verf√ľgung, um diese Herausforderungen zu meistern. Die Produktinspektionsabteilung des Unternehmens hat k√ľrzlich eine Reihe von Verbesserungen f√ľr die vertikalen Metalldetektoren von Profile herausgebracht, darunter den reduzierten Testmodus (RT) und das automatische Testsystem (ATS), die greifbare Vorteile f√ľr die Verbesserung der Gesamtanlageneffektivit√§t (OEE) bieten.

Routinem√§√üige Leistungs√ľberwachungstests sind eine Herausforderung f√ľr Lebensmittelhersteller
GFSI-basierte Lebensmittelsicherheitsstandards und Verhaltensregeln f√ľr Einzelh√§ndler erfordern h√§ufige Leistungs√ľberwachungstests, um zu √ľberpr√ľfen, ob die Produktpr√ľfger√§te ordnungsgem√§√ü funktionieren. Die H√§ufigkeit kann je nach Anwendung variieren und wie lange das Produkt vor Ort ist, bevor es an den Bestimmungsort geliefert wird. Die Herausforderung f√ľr Benutzer von Throat (VFFS) -Metalldetektoren besteht darin, wie sie bei der Durchf√ľhrung von Leistungs√ľberwachungstests die Mittellinienempfindlichkeit (Worst-Case-Empfindlichkeit) ihrer Metalldetektoren wirklich best√§tigen k√∂nnen. Ohne diese Best√§tigung k√∂nnen sie nicht sicher sein, dass sie ihre Kunden und ihre Marken zuverl√§ssig sch√ľtzen. Jedes Mal, wenn ein Test durchgef√ľhrt wird, kann sich dies auf die Produktivit√§t und die Arbeitskosten auswirken. Tests erfordern h√§ufig einen Produktionsstopp f√ľr mehrere Minuten, und zwei Bediener m√ľssen die Tests h√§ufig physisch durchf√ľhren. Je h√§ufiger Tests durchgef√ľhrt werden, desto gr√∂√üer sind die Auswirkungen auf Produktivit√§t und Rentabilit√§t und desto gr√∂√üer ist das Volumen der damit verbundenen Produktabf√§lle.

Reduce Metal Detector Testing and Reap the Benefits

Food manufacturers are under significant pressure to increase productivity, reduce food waste, and meet strict food safety standards. Fortunately, recent innovations from Mettler-Toledo are available to help overcome these challenges. The company's product inspection division recently released a number of enhancements to its Profile vertical metal detectors, including Reduced Test mode (RT) and Automatic Test System (ATS), which deliver tangible benefits to improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

Routine performance monitoring testing is a challenge for food manufacturers
GFSI-based food safety standards and retailer codes of practice require frequent performance monitoring tests to verify that product inspection equipment is working correctly. The frequency can vary depending on the application, and how long the product stays on site before it is shipped to its destination. The challenge that users of Throat (VFFS) metal detectors face is how can they truly confirm centerline (worst case) sensitivity of their metal detectors when conducting performance-monitoring tests? Without that confirmation, means they cannot be sure they are reliably protecting their customers and their brands. Additionally,  every time a test is carried out, there  can be an impact on productivity and labor costs. Tests often require a stop in production for multiple minutes, and two operators are often required to physically carry out the tests. The higher the frequency of testing, the bigger the impact it has on productivity and profitability, and the larger the volume of associated product waste.

How the latest metal detection innovations make routine testing easier
ATS and RT are designed to improve the accuracy of tests, reduce the frequency of testing required and reduce the time it takes to carry out the tests respectively.

Award-winning and approved by a major UK retailer, ATS is a non-invasive method of testing and is the only way that Mettler-Toledo believes confirms centerline sensitivity, ensuring maximum brand protection. It eliminates the random nature of Throat metal detector testing by providing a controlled and repeatable process. It also removes the risk of cross contamination, and product waste as the test pieces do not pass inside the product flow. ATS also reduces the time taken to conduct testing from three to four minutes to less than 40 seconds. As well as improving productivity and product safety, labor costs are reduced, as only one operative now needs to carry out testing. Worker safety is also enhanced due to the reduction of ladder climbs and working at height.

RT's intelligent software continuously checks the performance of the metal detector to ensure it is always working to, or better than, the manufacturer's specification. RT ensures the metal detector is always functioning correctly, and alerts any status changes that may lead to a drop in performance before the metal detector operates out of specification. One manufacturer used to test every two hours before introducing RT. They have now reduced testing to every 12 hours. They are reaping the benefits of increased productivity and labor efficiencies, as well as reduced product waste.

Drivers for change
Mike Bradley, Head of Sales at Mettler-Toledo's metal detection business says, “Product quality and productivity are two of the key drivers for our customers, alongside cost reduction. If a business can reduce costs and increase operator efficiency to allow them to carry out more production related functions, rather than test functions, there is a direct correlation with profitability. Our latest enhancements as a whole deliver cost-down, productivity-up benefits, whilst ensuring maximum product quality and brand protection,  aligning with the main business focus of many of our customers.”

More than just productivity benefits
Mettler-Toledo's other metal detection innovations include eDrive™ and Emulation. eDrive technology increases the amount of power to the transmit coil of the metal detector, making it easier to detect significantly smaller metal contaminants.

Fitted with eDrive, Mettler-Toledo’s latest throat metal detectors and gravity fall systems deliver up to 20 percent increased spherical sensitivity. This translates into significantly improved non-spherical (wire type contamination) detection capabilities enabling detection of lengths of wire up to fifty percent shorter than previously possible. This enhances product quality, reduces the risk of product recalls and improves brand protection.

Emulation uses Virtual Network Computing technology to enable operators to mirror the Human Machine Interface of one or multiple Profile metal detectors onto remote networked devices, including mobile phones, tablets and laptops.

Quality personnel can log in remotely to monitor the status of their metal detection program, view any setting changes that have been made, and review performance-monitoring statistics without having to be directly in front of the metal detector. In its simplest form, it can be considered a low cost "shop floor" to "top floor" monitoring process allowing the organization to effectively manage its critical control points.

These latest enhancements – ATS, RT, eDrive and Emulation – deliver significant productivity benefits, enhance product and process quality, increase levels of worker safety and ultimately help manufacturers protect their brand reputation.
