In the pipeline
HDS (stands for heavy-duty sausage) Pipeline metal detector is sensitive to all metal types for the sausage industry. It’s designed for full integration with leading vacuum filler machines and other process equipment. A single vertical gas strut makes the height of the detector head easy to adjust and large castors provide maximum mobility. The vendor’s patented ICF (Internal Cancellation Field) technology allows for a shorter throughput pipe, which reduces product creaming and also results in a compact system that easily fits in restricted spaces. It has a color touchscreen interface, Ethernet connectivity, stainless steel finish and is sealed to IP69K standards.

Dual beam inspection
A patent-pending X-ray system uses two X-ray beams to achieve dual detection for maximum inspection accuracy and superior product quality. The ScanTrac Duo ensures inspection coverage on the bottom of glass bottles and jars that might be partially obscured from a single beam inspection. It provides real-time, non-contact inspection, detecting and automatically rejecting out-of-tolerance products from the production line. With high sensitivity and an industry-leading false reject rate of less than 1:10,000, this product offers superior performance capabilities.

New inspection viewer
SensorView 350 is a compact, industrial, panel-mount display for the Checker 200 Series of inspection sensors that allows operators to view production images of the parts being inspected without a PC. The viewer features a simple interface for displaying images of passed or failed parts – or packages — along with status indicators and results statistics to monitor the production process. Checker inspection sensors make it easy for manufacturers to increase quality and productivity through inspection by addressing applications that are too challenging for traditional photoelectric sensors.
Cognex Corp.; Natick, Mass.
DuW Series metal detectors provide enhanced food,pharmaceutical and cosmetic inspection accuracy. The simultaneous two-frequency magnetic field-detecting technology increases overall detection of metal contaminants with a significant improvement in stainless detection in most applications versus traditional single wave inspection technology. Other advanced features of the series include an automatic set-up wizard for easy and accurate product set-up with minimal training, 30-second/no tool conveyor disassembly for easy cleaning and a simple design that results in easy maintenance.
