Varicon

Reliably detect all ferrous and non-ferrous metals in your packaged and unpackaged items.

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.

 

Benefits of Metal Detection Systems

Food grade metal detectors are a reliable and cost-effective way to ensure your products are free of contaminants, such as metal. This helps your business to:

 
  • Avoids product recalls due to metal contaminants, including any associated costs, fines and brand damage
  • Protect your processing equipment from damage – saving downtime and costs of machinery repair
  • Protect your brand and reputation
  • Comply with stringent retailer standards and build long-lasting relationships
  • Save costs – reduce waste and manual efforts
 

Fully integrated solutions

Matthews can integrate your coding and labelling systems with our metal detection solutions – all managed by our iDSnet software. For example, if the metal detection system identifies that a product is contaminated, iDSnet can trigger a process for this product to be directed to a different path or straight to the reject bin.
