Introduction to MD (Metal Detection Machines)

Among the biggest culprits for food contamination are metal and non-magnetic stainless steel. With our advanced metal detection technology, even products with high moisture content or packaged in metallised film can be checked. Metal detector systems can also be used in non-food businesses to ensure their products are metal-contaminant free.
